Wise, observant, chatty

Jack is an adorable, low-key older gentleman that appreciates having his humans nearby. He prefers side snuggles to true lap snuggles, tolerates being picked up, and absolutely adores head scratches! Give Jack a place to perch with a great view of the room, and even better, a bird-watching window, and he'll be occupied for hours! While he's not a typical lap cat, he clearly loves his people companions and would appreciate a home where he can hang out next to them in the evenings.

Jack is old enough to know what he likes, and he's not afraid to ask for it. It's so cute the way he meows to tell you hello and to inquire about more food, pretty please. He is on thyroid medication twice a day, but happily eats it in tuna or his food.

Jack and his sister, Jill, are best buddies. He finds Jill's antics amusing and is often content to watch from his perch while she runs around and plays. He's also open to new friends as long as they leave him be and respect his space.

This super friendly guy may be a bit older than some of the other cats out there, but he's all the more lovable and eager to meet his new family!

Before his stay with APA!, Jack had been declawed. As a result of this he must remain an indoor cat.

Jack 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. Jack 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.
