Petite, cuddly, purr-monster!

Just like the magical creature he's named after, Hippogriff is a showstopper! Hippogriff loves to be out and about in the house playing with other cats and even dogs. He loves balls and track toys, as well as string wands - a wizard in the making perhaps?

Hippogriff is a lovey-dovey guy, too! He adores for you to pet him - and will reward you by turning his purr motor up to 11. And not coincidentally, on a scale of 1 to 10 for affection, he is off the charts!

Hippogriff only uses his voice when he's kept away from the action! He doesn't like being cooped up, but then who would? He's got people to see, friends to hang with, and toys to chase. He is used to a big animal family, growing up with three kitty siblings and interacting with the other cats in his foster home. He is happy and friendly, and will try to engage everyone to play with him! A calm introduction to another FeLV+ cat in his new home should not be an issue. He is cool with the resident dogs, and will interact with them, but typically only if there are no other kitties around to play with! We think he would do best with adults, young adults, and older kids.

Hippogriff would love a magical furrever home where he can get lots of love and attention and where he can have the freedom to explore, ideally with a buddy like him! Contact us today to meet this outstanding boy.

Hippogriff 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. Hippogriff 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.
