Social, Playful, Affectionate

Loving Yang is easy because she will surely love you back. Yang is an affectionate girl who enjoys human companionship. She is the kind of cat who wants to be around her humans and cuddle with them---no aloof kitty is she. She's fine with being picked up and held and overjoyed when her soft fur is stroked.

She comes all dressed up in a tuxedo and has eyes that reflect her affectionate personality. When she is not adoring her human guardian, she may be gleefully paying with her toys or sitting at the window taking in the world outside. Her foster guardian reports that when she comes home, Yang is often sitting at the window as if she is waiting for her guardian's return. She is always happy when the humans come home.

Yang seems to be fine with cats and dogs and since she is a "people cat", she'll be good with children too. She knows her place in the universe and she takes all comers. She's not particularly vocal but she will let out a meow here and there. She is fond of scratching so she will need some good scratching posts or pads and a nail clip now and again. Yang would probably do best in a home with lots of opportunities to interact with her human guardians.

Do you have too much Yin in your life? Yang may be just the cat you need.

Yang 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. Yang 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.
