Moonwalker is a curious cat with a special request: he'd like a seat on your lap for every single meal. He doesn't need to eat off of your plate, but he'd prefer to be part of family mealtimes, thank you very much.

This former outdoor kitty overcame some tough times but was fortunate to have some caretakers to keep an eye on him. When they couldn't look after him anymore, he came to APA!, where he quickly learned how good life could be in a foster home. Moonwalker immediately relaxed and his inner sweetheart came out!

He wants to be around everyone, often doling out loving headbutts. He likes to see what is going on in each room of the house, so he can often be found wandering around checking people out. To really moonwalk into his heart, just present him with a selection of Churu treats - he'll let you know which one he wants by headbutting it!

Moonwalker does okay with other cats, but would really shine as the main cat in the house. We don't know how he is with dogs, but he's been great with school-aged kids (provided they're willing to share their lap with him, of course).

If you're looking for an affectionate people cat, look no further than Moonwalker. Contact us today to set up a meet and greet!

Moonwalker has stomatitis which is an inflammation of the mouth. It is typically resolved through removal of teeth and supportive care. He currently requires some extra medical care which may include medications and a wet food diet. For more information, please contact APA!

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.
