Cuddly, Loving, Pure-Sweetness

The name "Krampus makes it sound like this cat is fickle and mean, when actually, he's anything but! This old man is sweet as pie and wants nothing more than to crawl into your lap and purr as you pet him all over. He also loves to roll onto his back and make biscuits in the air as you scratch his belly. He LOVES food (like so much), and loves to play with toys, especially wands. He even gets zoomies!

Sure, Krampus Advocate may not have conventional beauty - he's got an eye that's healing, a crinkly cauliflower ear, and a swollen face; he's certainly been through the wringer. But, you will not find a more beautiful soul and, his battle scars actually make him that much more endearing. Based on how much he loves and craves cuddles and human affection we believe he was previously someone's snuggly little baby. He still is; he's just in an old man cat's body now, and he would really love for you to be his snuggly little human.

Since you didn't ask, we will let you know that Krampus Advocate's foster thinks the name Oscar suits him well, as would the name Wombat. We have asked his preference but all he says is "prrbbbttt?" so we guess he doesn't care. Classic him, he's literally so chill and just wants to have a lovefest whenever possible. His litterbox preference is open litterbox, if you please. He hasn't met the cat in his foster home, but has shown both curiosity and apprehension about this other kitty. He was bullied by an unfriendly cat at the shelter. But, may just be fine with a nice feline buddy if given a slow introduction.

Krampus Advocate would be so happy to have a mellow, loving home filled with snuggles and kindness. Give this sweet boy the cushy life he deserves and you will have a loving and cuddly companion for life!

Krampus Advocate 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. Krampus Advocate 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.
