Josey Wales is as far as you can get from an outlaw! He is a calm and law-abiding feline. In fact, his favorite activity is napping! He prefers to find the best out-of-the-way spot and spend his day snoozing. It's kind of like hide-and-go-sleep! So if you visit him at the shelter, you might have to provide the "seek", and go find him.

Josey is cool with other cats. He's not interested in playing, but he IS interested in treats! He has a shy side and would do best with a patient family who will let him warm up at his own pace. Sometimes he will be cautious and hang back to assess the situation before approaching you, while other times he'll slink right up. In general, his preference is a gentle approach to interacting rather than an overly effusive or loud greeting.

Josey has a surprisingly floofy tail for a short-haired cat! He also has a funny and adorable habit of standing with his front paws in ballet first position: legs together, paws turned out. If you have a quiet home with comfy kitty caves and would love an easy-going feline companion, contact us today to meet Josey.

Josey Wales 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

Josey Wales 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. Josey 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.
