Who ya gonna call? Call, that is! He is an incredibly affectionate cat looking for love and cuddles in a fur-ever home! He is a laid-back boy who enjoys the finer things in life, like a warm place to sleep and belly rubs. When he wants snuggles, he will lean into your hand...and lean...and lean...until he eventually flops over against you. And if that isn't cute enough, sometimes he trills when you pet him!

Given the choice, Call would choose pets over playing! But he when he plays, he particularly enjoys pouncing on a wand toy from under the bed and chasing the ball around its track. He is a social cat who likes company, and he would love a friendly feline buddy in his new home! He can get lonely if left on his own, and a cat friend that he could play with and snuggle with would be perfect.

Call is perfectly fine playing with kids and receiving pets, but since he can get overwhelmed by high-energy children, he should live with older kids, or be supervised around little humans.

Call seems okay with the dogs in his foster home, though he hasn't had direct contact with them because they don't care for cats - go figure! However, we think that with his sociable, open nature, he would be fine with a cat-friendly pup.

As long as he has plenty of places to scratch, he is a happy boy! Overall, he is a pretty quiet little guy, but he isn't too shy to let you know when he needs some attention or a bite to eat.

He would do great anywhere he could get love and attention pretty regularly, be it from a person, a feline buddy, a cat-friendly dog, and/or all of the above! Preferably someplace not too loud or hectic, because he can get a little nervous if things get too chaotic. He might be nervous about new things at first, but is also very curious; so as a compromise, he will select a hiding place, but will peek out to keep an eye on what's going on! Once he's comfortable, curiosity replaces his nervousness.

Contact us today to meet Call! He's a doll!

Call has tested positive for FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus). FeLV cats have a virus that causes a weaker immune system - they do not have cancer! For the most part, felvies are just like any other cat. You could not pick one out of the crowd, and they generally do not require much additional care. As a bonus, we waive their adoption fees! APA! provides full coverage and treatment for any FeLV-related issues that arise after the time of adoption. Cats with FeLV typically have a shortened lifespan - we like to compare it to the lifespan of adopting a senior kitty, with the added benefit that they don't have chronic senior health problems, and that FeLV-related medical care is covered. Call is not contagious to people, dogs or other animals, but should live only with other FeLV+ cats. For more information, please contact APA! or read more by our Partner, Best Friends Animal Society: http://bit.ly/2FwYCxR

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.
