"So, So, Super Sweet, Loving, Snuggle Boy

Chilton's first day at the shelter he pouted and hid - until he spotted his wet food, that is! Sweet! He ran over and started eating happily.

Even now that he's comfortable, Chilton likes to hang out in the tent we made out of his emotional support blankie. It's just so comfy-cozy! When you visit him he'll wake up and come out to play and get some cuddles. He seems to come out when there are people in his room, but goes back to his tent to nap when he is alone.

Chilton looks for attention and tries to lure you in by showing his fluffy belly. You won't be able to help yourself, but no worries! It's not a trap! Chilton actually enjoys belly rubs. He loves being pet anywhere, really. He's not shy about pets. He particularly loves to snack on the tuna and crab Churu while curled up in a cozy lap.

Chilton is so happy for the attention he'll circle around you and rub his head against you.
After a thorough belly rub session, he'll be so relaxed he'll want to go take a nap. Maybe you will, too! Do you have a nice couch to hold the two of you? Bring him home and test it out!

Chilton Years 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. Chilton Years 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.
