Meet Runt! This special lady is stinkin' precious, with the most adorable chin freckles and beautiful spotted patterning throughout her silky coat.

Runt is independent but super affectionate. She loves to lay on your lap or feet and purr sweetly (she makes a great heater, especially in the winter!). She also likes to snuggle next to you in bed in the morning -- she'll adorably rest her head on the pillow next to yours to receive pets.

Runt is easily entertained and especially loves to play with hair ties and wand toys. She's not super talkative but will excitedly greet you with sweet meow when you come home, eager to have you pet her (she also gets excited when you open her can of wet food at meal time, as anyone would!).

Runt is a very chill lady and values her relaxation time, so she's not a huge fan of loud noises. She's super easy-going and low-maintenance, though, and she will happily adapt to any loving home environment. An ideal home for her would have a lot of windows, though, as she loves watching birds and sunbathing in the natural light. Runt is a truly amazing lady and will make a loyal constant companion for someone who can provide her the love she so deserves -- it will definitely be reciprocated!

Runt 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. Runt 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.
