Chill, sweet, cute

His name may imply bravery, but Valkyrie is really just a chill, cautious kitty. He's slowly but surely adjusting to his new surroundings, but getting braver every day. He's not quite a lap cat yet, but he does really enjoy pets. Keep all four paws of his on the ground and he'll keep on accepting those pets! Baby steps! This sweet kitty has grown leaps and bounds in the last few months and is ready for his forever home to take him down the home stretch of trusting humans fully!

He's about average when it comes to play and activity level. Loves to run around and chase toys when he's in the mood! Trying to get some work done? He'll make sure that your pen is what he wants to play with at the moment. Although he's a bit shy at first, he's always so excited to meet new cats. He loves them! Valkyrie's ideal home would be laid back and quiet. He's most comfortable when he has another kitty that he can curl up next to and feel safe with.

He really needs people willing to be patient and let him get used to you and open up. Once he does, he's sweet and loving as can be! If you show him that you love him, he'll let you scoop him up and snuggle him forever! You're sure to fall in love with this guy - hurry and meet him!

Valkyrie 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. Valkyrie 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.
