Love sponge, sweet, affectionate

Greyson had a close call! He was found wandering outside in the snow up north and rescued just before the recent polar vortex hit. When the local shelter couldn't take him, his rescuer sent him to APA. Whew! Even though Greyson is a Russian Blue, we doubt that he could have survived those Siberian-like temperatures!

Greyson loves peaceful environments and lots of loving attention. He's fine with the other cats in the adoption center, though the pushier ones tend to make him a little nervous. He's a sensitive guy, and sudden movements make him a bit skittish. When there's a lot of activity in the adoption center, he tends to hide. But if you seek him out, he will eagerly accept your attention and lean into your hands and legs for pets. He even loves giving hugs! Pick him up and he'll happily snuggle into you with both paws on either side of your face.

He hasn't shown interest in playing in the adoption center, but who knows? Maybe once he's in a home where he can get all of the love he needs, he might decide that toys can be fun too.

Greyson would thrive in a calm home with adults and older children who want to lavish him with love and attention. Young kids and rowdy, rambunctious kittens and dogs would make him nervous, but we think he'd be fine with other calm, friendly cats and dogs.

Greyson 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. Greyson 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.
