Spunky - Playful - Laid-back

Kilauea LOVES to play! Kitty tunnels are her favorite, but she also adores wand toys, and would be very happy to go to a home where she can get lots of playtime. She enjoys being petted, but knows when to give you your space. Kilauea is good with humans of all ages, but prefers to be the only cat in the home if possible (she doesn't fight with other cats, but has made it clear she doesn't appreciate their presence). Kilauea's ideal home would be one where she gets lots of playtime and petting, where she can be the queen bee as the only kitty.

Our favorite thing about this silly girl? How much she loves humans! If she isn't in the room with you you'll hear her meowing from elsewhere in the house, wondering where her love is. Don't worry, as soon as she can see you she quiets down. She also loves to run over to you and immediately flop over asking for belly rubs. We're happy to oblige since she is so soft!

Kilauea 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. Kilauea 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.
