Friendly, snuggly, curious

This handsome young tabby-tuxie boy has the cutest long stockings on his front legs, big eyes, and a perfect pink nose. It's as if he's always dressed for company, and this boy does love company! He'll run to the door when visitors come and greet them with a welcoming purr.

This sweetie will be your shadow. When he's awake, he'll follow you from room to room to see what you're doing. If you sit down, he'll want to curl up in your lap or stretch out next to you, He'll even sleep under the sheets with you!

IKEA is a world-class biscuit maker! He's a chatty little guy who loves to tell you all about his adventures. He's quite the explorer, too. As soon as he came home with his foster, he started exploring every nook and cranny of her house. He's brave and unfazed by new places, people, or things. He's a ferocious mighty hunter who loves to snatch a wand toy out of the air and parade around with it in his mouth. He's a techie, too, and is fond of cat apps that let him watch and tap at fish on a screen. And of course he loves watching birds and squirrels from a window perch! He gets so excited when he sees them!

IKEA's foster describes him as a very good boy. He's super-fun and affectionate, highly social, and never misbehaves. He lived with other cats at his previous foster's home and got along well with them.

If you're looking for a fun, friendly, sweet new buddy, contact us today to arrange a meet-and-greet!

IKEA Meatball has tested positive for Feline Leukemia. FeLV is not a type of cancer. It's a virus that causes a weaker immune system and often a shorter life-span. For the most part, 'FeLVies' are just like any other cat. APA! waives the adoption fees of these cats, and provides FeLV-related treatment and support post-adoption. He can only live with other FeLV+ cats, but dogs and other animals are just fine! Any questions? We'd love to talk with you about FeLV care.

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.
