Calm, Cuddly, Companion

Voss is quite the gentleman! He politely meows for permission to join his humans in bed for the night and waits for their reassurance that he is welcome to join - with those big beautiful eyes, and adorable crinkly ear, he luckily doesn't hear no too often!

If you are looking for a sweet companion, Voss is the feline for you! He absolutely adores interacting with people, and loves to be close by as his humans go about their day. He would be great for someone who works from home, and won't mind a few distractions throughout the day! He likes to rub his face all over anything his foster is holding - phone, laptop, or even just an empty hand! So if you're starting work for the day, just make sure to allot some time to giving Voss head scritches before officially clocking in. If there is space next to your desk or chair Voss snuggles in close, and settles down for as long as his person stays put. The purrs start immediately and it takes a lot to stop them!

Voss came to APA! with a previous leg injury that has left him walking with a limp. He moves around well and is on joint supplements and a mild pain medication to help keep him feeling happy and healthy! He is also on a special diet, and is a little bit of a social eater - which just means he eats better/more when he gets some encouragement from his humans!

Voss has Chronic Renal Disease, which means his kidneys are not functioning as well as they once were. This condition is so common in older cats that APA! offers a special adoption package for them. Read more about renal failure and adoption details here: https://bit.ly/2YudG90

Voss is a low-energy cat, and would be a great fit in a home where people are around to cuddle with often. He interacted with other cats while he was in the shelter and was as calm as can be. He has not met any children, but does enjoy meeting new adults who visit and want to pet him! He isn't the biggest fan of being picked up, but otherwise is an adaptable and social cat who loves to make new friends!

If a sweet (but kind of grumpy looking) cat is just who you are looking to add to your family, Voss is your guy! He has the kindest soul, and just wants to love and be loved. He will be around as much as possible, and will be your new foot warmer at night! Contact APA today to see about adopting Voss!

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.
