Social, Affectionate-to-the-hilt, Easy

Wanna snuggle? Carrie will set you up! Her fosters describe her as "the cuddliest cat known to man" and say she's an absolute lovebug. Pets, belly rubs...you name it, all forms of loving make her happy. Her main purpose in life is finding a human to love and then, no holds barred, showing them affection ad infinitum!

Carrie greets everyone at the door and you can hear her sweet purr going nonstop. She welcomes loving from all she meets regardless of their age. She doesn't demand attention, but her purr does go up a few notches when she gets it. She likes to chat--always ready to ask you about your day and to happily answer even the most provocative questions. She's a clever girl too and has taught herself how to open cabinets. She uses her scratching post like a champ and keeps her claws away from the furniture.

Carrie adores her doggy friends and has so much fun playing with them. She has gotten along well with all of the furry acquaintances she's met and lets them know right off the bat that she gets to be in charge. Her patience with those who don't get the message is legendary. When a visiting dog decided to carry Carrie around in his mouth there were no claws or drama from this cool customer. Instead, she waited for the humans to put a stop to the dog's gentle, but not exactly welcome, cat transport.

Carrie is precious, purry and ready to love 24/7. The number of people and furry friends in her forever home makes no difference, it's the love and affection that count. If you're looking for an adorable companion whose greatest pleasure is loving you, contact us to meet Carrie today!

Carrie 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. Carrie 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.
