Affectionate, Cuddlebug, Social
Archie is a super big sweetheart-of-a-guy, and would likely do well in any home with people that he can follow around, snuggle with, and love on! He is friendly from the get-go, the moment you meet him, coming up to you and being totally charming. He likes to be picked up and hugged! And with his soft fur, it's like every little hair on his coat is hugging you back.
Archie has a wonderful vocabulary, not limited to the typical meow; he chirps sweetly, plus makes little trilling noises to say hello when you get home! He loves being with you and will follow you around the house, rubbing against your legs while you wash dishes or brush your teeth. And when you settle down he will settle down, too; near you, or in your lap, if you let him! At night he takes his rightful place at the foot of the bed. Like your little shadow, wherever you go in the house, there Archie is - in a companionable, easy-going way.
Whip out a feather toy, and Archie will demonstrate his impressive jumps! When feeling frisky, he will also vigorously bat around his jingle ball. Once he is done with his cardio workout, he will find a place near you to nap. Overall, he is a laid-back and mellow cat, preferring chilling out to performing athletic feats.
Archie would probably do well with gentle, loving humans of any age. We have seen him around other cats and he seemed comfortable with them. He always uses the litter box AND the scratching post - plus, he doesn't go all Drama Kitty when you clip his nails, unlike many cats!
Archie is your new best friend - contact us today to meet him! What a perfect guy.
Archie 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. Archie is not contagious to people, dogs or other animals, but should live only with other FeLV+ cats.

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.
