Lap-cat, handsome, ball of fun

"All my life I've looked at cat toys as though I were seeing them for the first time." -Purrnest Hemingway

What a handsome boy! How could you resist Purrnest Hemingway's tabby tiger stripes, white belly and toes, knee high stockings, and gorgeous green eyes?

Purrnest makes a wonderful weighted blanket. He would LOVE to sit in your lap while you work, or when given the opportunity will lay across your stomach or chest and really snuggle up! He will gladly roll over to let you scratch his belly.

When he's not curling up next to you, he will be trying to play! Purrnest is a playful, spunky kitty. He enjoys laser pointers, and hunting and pouncing on his wand toys. He needs a forever home that will play with him, and might benefit from having another friendly, playful kitty to hang with.

Purrnest Hemingway does his best work at night. I mean who need sleep when there's all those tables to climb on and fun things to knock off the counters? Night time is also when Purrnest feels the need to express himself vocally. He will sing you sweet nothings while you dream of him.

The ideal home for this rambunctious sweetie would be with a family that will give him plenty of play time, plenty of snuggle time, and can accept and work with his night time routine. If Purrnest sounds like he would be purrfect for your home then go meet this adorable ball of fun!

Purrnest Hemingway 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. Purrnest Hemingway 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.
