Affectionate, Playful, Purrmaster

Father McGruder is a dashing white kitty and a handsome tabby all rolled into one, adorable cuddle machine! He loves to snuggle, and will show you his happiness by purring up a storm. He's very playful, too - and loves to play fetch! This cutie isn't bashful about speaking up and will let you know what's on his mind or when it's time to eat. You're always welcome to admire and pet his supremely soft fur...the more loving the better!

He gets along great with other kitties, mostly because they will play with him! Anything can be a toy to this boy, he'll happily bat or chase anything he can find around. When playtime is done, he likes to settle into a snug little bed and get cheek scratches from his humans.

If you have large quantities of affection to share, Father McGruder is ready to be your furry, friendly sidekick! Contact us to meet him today!

Father McGruder 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. Loverboy 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

Father McGruder is from Palm Valley Animal Shelter, as part of APA's ongoing effort to help other communities become no-kill. This effort is both part of and a perfect example of the work that is being done through our new Maddie's Lifesaving Academy, aimed at helping communities across the country build or bolster their own no-kill communities through apprenticeships. For more information or to become involved, see https://bit.ly/2Ii5Qbz.

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.
