Private Eye likes to keep his eye on you! He's a friendly and chummy guy, and will follow you around the house to see what you're up to. He is affectionate and gives you head butts when he wants attention. And he'll walk up to you when he is ready to sit in your lap and get some pets!

Private Eye is a chill, cool cat! He adapted quickly and easily into his foster home, observing and detecting the household routine, and then settling into it. He slept next to his foster mom on the first night and adjusted to her sleep routine immediately!

He loves to play with feather toys, and will entertain himself - and amuse you! - by sliding a bottle cap around on the hardwood floor. He loves to toss his stuffed mouse here and there, and then go chase it!

In his past, Private Eye met other cats and was fine with them, as long as they respected his personal space and had a laid-back personality. He also met some kids and did great! He has his boundaries and will let you know when he's done with pets or playing; his humans should be able to read and respect his signals. He might also grab you as you walk away if he wants *more* pets or playing!

You might catch Private Eye sticking his tongue out! He's not sticking it out at you. He has stomatitis, an inflammation of the mouth, which is not uncommon with cats. It is typically resolved through removal of teeth and supportive care. Meds seem to be helping Private Eye, but he might need extractions at some point. He also eats a wet food diet. For more information, please contact APA!

Private Eye is a champ in the litter box. He likes to jump up on things and would do well with an approved scratching device to get his scratch on. He loves treats and that is the only thing he meows about!

We think Private Eye would love a busy household so he could keep tabs on all the action. He would like people to follow around and play with, and perhaps a nice feline friend. And windows so he can watch the birds and squirrels in the trees outside!

He is such an easy guy to get along with. Contact us today to arrange a meet & greet!

Private Eye 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. Private Eye 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.
