Handsome - Spunky - Playful

Thomasin loves to play! Everything is a toy to Thomasin, but his very favorite are kitty tunnels. While he isn't a lap cat per se, Thomasin does enjoy attention and will rub on you and give you gentle love nips to express his affection. He's a little shy at first, but once he comes out of his shell, he's a very playful, silly lad.

Thomasin tolerates most cats in the cattery, however every now and then a special kitty will catch his eye and he'll have a ball wrestling and playing with them! He loves to be king of the castle, so he would do well either as a single kitty or one with another cat friendly kitty. His ideal home would be one where his special people would give him time to warm up and become comfortable, and a home with lots of toys (and definitely a kitty tunnel). Because he is a little shy and also gives love nips, a home without small children would probably be best, although older, calm children would likely be fine.

Thomasin 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. Thomasin 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.
