Iris is a gentle, mellow girl who revels in tummy rubs - but there's nothing mellow about her loud, rumbling purr! Though she hasn't yet made the leap to lap cat, she loves to be cuddled and petted, and will get as close as she can to you. She will, however, stand in your lap to increase her likelihood of getting pets!
Iris is like the exquisite flower - gorgeous, delicate, and sweet! She likes to spend time in her hot house hideaway - in this case, a cozy spot in her foster home located under the fish tank and behind a little door. And though she may take a little bit to get used to you, she's no shrinking violet! You can win her over with some friendly encouragement - and watch her affection blossom!
We haven't seen Iris with children, but she'd likely be fine with gentle kiddos who shower her with love. She is good-natured and calm and does well with other kitties, though she may ignore them or hide from them if they are super high energy.
Iris is an easy girl who would thrive either as your one and only cat or with another laid-back kitty friend. She's fine if you're not around during the day, as long as you bring a bouquet of loving to her when you get home.
If you're in search of a gentle kitty whose affection goes above and beyond the garden-variety kind, then that's blooming fantastic! Could this mean that everything's coming up roses for you and Iris? Hopefully we've planted the seed. Contact us to meet this precious bud today!
Iris has tested positive for FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus). FeLV cats have a virus that causes a weaker immune system - they do not have cancer! For the most part, felvies are just like any other cat. You could not pick one out of the crowd, and they generally do not require much additional care. As a bonus, we waive their adoption fees! APA! provides full coverage and treatment for any FeLV-related issues that arise after the time of adoption. Cats with FeLV typically have a shortened lifespan - we like to compare it to the lifespan of adopting a senior kitty, with the added benefit that they don't have chronic senior health problems, and that FeLV related medical care is covered. Iris is not contagious to people, dogs or other animals, but should live only with other FeLV+ cats.

All APA! cats are fully vetted, spayed or neutered, and have updated vaccines and a microchip. Lifetime support is offered by our Cat Behavior Team.
