Iris is like an exquisite flower...so gorgeous, delicate and sweet! She likes to spend time in her hot house hideaway, in this case a cozy spot located under the fish tank and behind a little door. But, she's no shrinking violet. Coax her out with some friendly encouragement and her affection blossoms beautifully. She loves to get pets, cheek scratches and belly rubs. She'll even tolerate you picking her up. Although, she'd just as soon that you didn't. She prefers keeping her feet planted on the ground.
Iris hasn't cuddled up in laps so far. But, she does like to stand in them to increase her likelihood of getting pets. Once she has the comfort and security of a forever home, she may grow to conclude that laps are the perfect place for naps and snuggles.
We haven't seen Iris with children. But, she'd likely get along well with kiddos, especially if they shower her with love. Iris is so good natured and does well with other kitties. She's an easy girl who would thrive 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.
