Creature is a shy guy with a big heart. Initially, he can be a little timid when introduced to new people, but as long as the introduction is made at a slower pace he'll eventually warm up to everyone he meets. If he feels like you're not going at the right speed for him he'll let you know it with a little hiss letting you know he's uncomfortable. Don't worry though, he's all talk.

Putting in the extra time to show Creature that people can be trusted will be worth it. Once he feels safe and comfortable he loves to get full body pets and of course a good head scratch too. While he hasn't shown interest in being a lap cat yet, we have a feeling that once he knows he's home he's got some snuggles in him.

Creature loves to play. He loves to wrestle with other young male cats and is incredibly sweet with the female cats he's been introduced to. When he's not wrestling with other cats in the home, he loves to play with toy mice and jingle balls.

Creature does well with other cats but isn't comfortable with dogs or little kids. So, his ideal home would be dog-free, and with an older, cat-savvy kid.

While Creature gives off a warning hiss, he's typically pretty silent most of the day. Until dinner. Creature loves dinner. So around dinner time, you might hear him getting excited and letting out a few meows.

Creature 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. Creature 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.
