Elegant. Playful Sweet.

"Kreacher will always fight for Master Regulus. Kreacher misses Master very much." - Kreacher from the Harry Potter series

Creature was a shy guy with a big heart. Initially, he was a little timid when introduced to new people, but just wait till you meet this boy now! He isn't nervous around new people at all anymore! We are so happy with how far this sweet, playful boy has come.

Putting in the extra time to show Creature that people can be trusted was worth it. Once he feels safe and comfortable he loves to get full body pets and of course a good head scratch too. He'll also calmly let you pick him up, rather than panicking like he did initially. Recently he even started accepting belly rubs! And, he'll even approach you when he's in the mood for some loving. While he hasn't shown interest in being a lap cat yet, we have a feeling that once he knows he's home he's got some lap snuggles in him.

Creature loves to play. He loves to wrestle with other young male cats and is incredibly sweet with the female cats he's been introduced to. When he's not wrestling with other cats in the home, he loves to play with toy mice and jingle balls.

Creature does well with other cats but isn't comfortable with dogs or little kids. So, his ideal home would be dog-free, and with an older, cat-savvy kid. Did you notice his beautiful, glossy coat? It's so soft and overall he has a very elegant, elongated appearance that makes him especially striking.

While Creature is typically pretty silent most of the day. Until dinner. Creature loves dinner. So around dinner time, you might hear him getting excited and letting out a few meows. Don't forget the treats for dessert, he loves those too!

Creature 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. Creature 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.
