Lover Boy, Bossy, Nuzzle Buddy

Coconut has got plenty of hugs and rubs to give! This fella is a lover boy; he is not a lap cat, but he is extremely affectionate. You can expect Coconut to be close to you and nuzzle you all the time. He loves getting his head rubbed and will not let you go until he is happy that he is sufficiently head-rubbed!

He loves playing with stuffed toy mice and cat teaser wands. This boy has a big personality and will thrive in a home where he gets lots of attention. He even loves other cats. Coconut can be very playful and affectionate towards cats, even if they don't want the attention.

Coconut would do best in a home with older children and possibly a cat friend that doesn't mind getting some love from him also. He sometimes gets overstimulated and gives a nip warning. But, can you blame him? All he wants is a family of his own and to express his love.

Coconut 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. Coconut 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.
