Relaxed, Affectionate, Inquisitive

Ike isn't a former U.S. president or army general, but his tiger stripe coat makes him fierce nonetheless. He is incredibly affectionate and laid-back, preferring to watch the world go by as he spends his days relaxing. Truth-be-told, Ike is sexy and he knows it! He's a handsome boy with a perfect pink nose.

Ike doesn't really play with toys, but likes laser pointers. He prefers to use his energy to follow you around! He also loves when you give him lots of pats, especially on his tummy and back. All this attention makes him an avid 'purr-er!' But overall he's pretty quiet and will only meow when he's hungry for salmon-flavored soft food.

Ike is good with both kids and adults. His ideal home would have lots of soft food for him and humans who like to cuddle and give him lots of attention! If you're looking for a laid-back snuggle bunny to hang out with, Ike is the guy for you!

Ike 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. Ike 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.

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.
