Cuddling with Oolong is like sipping on a cup of tea --- cozy and relaxing. Oolong is the picture of relaxation with naps, snuggling, and purring being her preferred activities throughout the day. She won't initially come asking for your loves, but when you pick her up and hold her against your chest or set her on your lap, she's absolutely all about it. If your lap is occupied, she'll be more than thrilled to curl up in a quiet cat cave for some solo dozing. Oolong is generally a quiet kitty, but she'll open up and become chatty when you bring out the treats! She'll do her best to persuade you for just a few more. Oolong gets along well with other FeLV kitties, but she'd be happy in a house with or without other kitty friends.

Oolong 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. Oolong 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.
