Mellow. Loving. Cheery.

"I'm horrible in the mornings. I'm grumpy." - Hugh Grant

Don't worry, Grant is lovely any time of day! But he really does love his nap time.

Grant is a little bit more of a reserved kitty at first. But, he becomes increasingly outgoing as he gets to know you. He loves to be near his people but he doesn't necessarily want to be held by them or on you, just near you. When given the chance he will hop up on your bed and sleep next to you. When Grant does want love he appreciates a good butt scratchin. You'll catch him raising his caboose up in the air when you've found the sweet spot. If you pet him on the floor, he'll fall over and begin rolling in happiness!

Now, don't make the mistake that Grant doesn't want affection and attention because he does and he will let you know when it's time for love with a very loud meow. You'll also hear this same loud meow when he's hungry. If someone new comes along, Grant hops onto his tower to check them out, quickly accepting the inevitable pets that come his way.

Grant doesn't really care to play too much, but he does like having a scratching post around.

Grant's ideal home would be one where he can really just lay back and chill and meow at you periodically to get love. It's not known how grant does around children, dogs, and other cats. When being picked up at the shelter Grant's foster noticed that he didn't seem to pay attention or care about other cats.

Grant is a healthy FIV+ (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) cat. FIV+ cats typically live long, healthy lives! For more information, please contact APA! or read this FAQ: http://bit.ly/2DPxI43

Grant 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. Grant 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.
