Nude Molerat (NM) is a big sweet boy who loves to be cuddled. And he is a kitty of many names: The Kitty Who Walks on a Leash, The Kitty with Incredibly Soft Fur, The Kitty with the Incredibly Loud Purr, and The Kitty with a Heart a Few Sizes Too Large are a few of them!

First off, NM is learning to walk on the leash and he is doing a great job! His foster mom reports that he walks HER, actually - he loves it!

Also, his fur is silky soft and doesn't shed too much. You will get to experience it a lot because NM loves being held by his humans while getting pets. In fact, he will notice if you are working from home and will gently put his paws on your legs or lap and beg you to pick him up and hold him. After which, he is guaranteed to turn on his extremely loud purr motor.

NM is a young boy and loves to play. He loves to tackle any other cat, big or small, that will play. If the other cat is not interested, he will move on (and learn); but if the other cat is willing to engage, NM is fearless! If other animals are not available, he is very happy to play with toy mice and balls with bells and strings and feathered toys and plastic bottle caps and pens...

But even though he is very playful, NM won't keep you up at night. He is rather convinced that his place at night is in bed by your side, possibly snuggling by your feet but sometimes in the crook of your arm.

NM is very careful with his claws, but his teethies are another story. While he has (mostly) learned not to nip in over-excitement when he gets pets, he still sometimes loses focus and forgets. He also likes to play-bite when playing. Although his nips are not malicious, very little kids are not ideal for him, or at least should be supervised in their play/interaction.

Nude Molerat has tested positive for Feline Leukemia. FeLV is not a type of cancer. It's a virus that causes a weaker immune system and often a shorter life-span. For the most part, 'FeLVies' are just like any other cat. APA! waives the adoption fees of these cats, and provides FeLV-related treatment and support post-adoption. Nude Molerat can only live with other FeLV+ cats, but dogs and other animals are just fine! Any questions? We'd love to talk with you about FeLV care

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.

APA!’s Barn Cat Program Provides You With Your Favorite Whiskered Workers

Some cats prefer mice-hunting to bird-watching, and some prefer laying in grass to sitting on laps. Here at APA!, we believe that barn cats still deserve a chance to live happy and healthy.
