Beautiful, Sweet, Biscuit-maker

Emerald is a beautiful, shy girl looking for a loving home to come out of her shell in. She's perfectly content curling up next to you and getting pets all day every day. She won't seek out attention herself, but once you start petting her, she's in heaven! She'll make biscuits and purr her little heart out.

Right now she doesn't have much interest in toys, but that may change once she has a home to spread out in. Her behavior with cats, dogs, and kids is unknown, but her sweet and reserved personality would likely be just fine with cat-experienced pals. This girl is sweet as can be, and would love nothing more than to be your cuddle buddy for life.

Emerald 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. Emerald 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.
