Friendly, Happy, Snuggly

Like his namesake, this beautiful kitty is a lover - of laps, of other cats, of being scratched in just the right spot. His favorite activity in the world is being snuggled by humans! He doesn't so much sit in your lap as flop around in it to make sure you're getting all the good places. If you stop petting him before he's done (read: always) he will gently grab your hands and pull them back towards his face. Keep petting me human! Your work here is not done!

If that's not enough for you, just look at that sweet squishy face! If it doesn't pull you in right away, just spend some time with him and your heart will melt. You'll HAVE to take him home with you. Loverboy LOVES toys, he'll run around with his mouse toy batting it all around the room, and if you ever can't see where he is..just listen for his sweet little chirps.

Loverboy's ideal home is one with lots of love and affection. He is good with other cats. He has not been introduced to kids, but knowing his personality, we're almost positive he'll be great.

Loverboy 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

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.
