Calm, Snuggly, Sweet

Ahoy Sailor! This kitty is ready to find a permanent port with lots of love! He's a chill fellow with fluffy toe tufts and a slightly sleepy expression. He's gentle and affectionate, and would love to lay on your lap forever and ever. Seriously, have a seat-he'll jump up, curl up and start purring. He's very snuggly and doesn't even mind if you interrupt his nap, as long as you give him some pets.

When Sailor isn't snuggling with his human friends, he's chasing string toys or playing with other kitties. (He also likes to indulge in the catnip every once in a while and get a little wild!) Sailor would love a forever home with a nice family and other kitties who enjoy curling up with a blanket to read a good book or watch some Netflix. He's met his foster's dog and it went well. He'd also love some sunny window spots and soft beds for his epic naps!

Sailor 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. Sailor 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.
