Relaxed. Friendly. Curious.
"I can tell you with certainty that there are things on this planet worth protecting!" - Peridot (from Steven Universe)
Peridot, or Perry as he's otherwise known, is a young fella looking for a home that can help him come out of his shell. On the road to recovery, Perry was first introduced to us as a little kitty cold so he's been a little stressed out.
Even while he was feeling under the weather and uncertain he still had plenty of love to give. Greeting everyone at the door with a purr and a head bump. While he's not a lap cat, he is happy to get a hug and some pets. He's also very content to hang out with you and relax.
While Perry mostly likes to relax he does have moments where he enjoys a good frolic. Some of his favorite playtime activities include playing with crinkly balls and any type of string! Other than that, Perry will either be close by your side or watching the world go by from a window.
Peridot did fine with other kitties when he was briefly living in the shelter. Peridot does well with dogs, he's calm and curious. So, as long as the pup is cat-friendly there shouldn't be any problem. Given Perry's playing style (very handsy and has claws), he'd probably do best in a house with older children.
Peridot 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. Peridot 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.
