Animated, Sweet, Cuddlebug
The Nacho is a purrfect combination of playful and chill. He Loves his spring toy and has playtime batting it down the stairs and carrying it around in his mouth in the morning and at night. He's an assertive explorer with varied interests, like playing in cat tunnels, lounging at the top of a cat tree, or hunting for socks. Don't worry though because he isn't a crazy kitten, he plays for a bit and then is super chill the rest of the day. He likes to find different napping spots. When you can't find him check under the bed, by the toilet (yes!), in the bathtub, or by the window. His favorite is sitting on anything new! Grocery bag from your last trip: I Sits! Empty backpack in the living room? "I sits!
The most lovable thing about The Nacho is when he comes into the room for cuddles. If you work from home, he comes in and looks at you. Maybe he sits next to your chair or gently taps your shoulder to ask to get on your lap. Once he's there you scoop him up line a big baby and nuzzle your face into him and tell him he is the bestest boi ever. He loves being held like a baby in these moments. If you stop to type he will gently reach out to bring all the hands back on deck for pets. The same goes for laying down on your bed. If it's cuddle time, The Nacho jumps right up and lays on top of you like the weighted blanket that he is. He has a nice strong purr. He also loves bird videos and cats eating churus.
For those of your worried you'll be trapped for hours, the Nacho likes to keep his cuddle sessions short, maybe only a couple minutes then he jumps down to find a new spot. But expect to be visited multiple times a day!
The Nacho got along with the other cats in the shelter. He actually escaped from his enclosure specifically to hang out with a neighboring cat! Then, in foster, he got along with their family cat.
He's on acknowledgement terms with the dog in his foster home - they say hello to each other but that's as far as it goes.
The Nacho would be great with cat-friendly children who can respectfully interact with him. The truth is, he'd be great with just about anyone! This is a well-rounded kitty who brings fun wherever he goes.

The Nacho 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. The Nacho 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.
