Soft. Lovable. Lounger.

If you are looking for a couch potato cat, look no further than Bear! This white-whiskered tuxedo would love to join you for a binge watch of your favorite show. He'll stare at the television, then look at you like, "are you seeing this?" Once, he even tried to grab the falling balls on the television screen!

But perhaps Bear's favorite part of watching television is getting to cuddle with you on the sofa. He will lay next to you and reach for your hand to let you know he'd like his ears scratched, please. Once the hand starts scratching, the motor starts running. Bear has a strong purr that he'll use to show he loves you.

Bear usually lays around all day enjoying his naptime, but in the evenings he likes to play. Bear's favorite toys include a stick toy that has a ribbon and furball attached to it. It's extra special because he's had it since before he came to APA! He also enjoys balls with bells in them and small stuffed mice toys. As he winds down, Bear likes to go for a stroll around the house and then climb into bed with his foster.

Bear 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. Bear 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

Bear would really love to be with someone who enjoys lounging and can give him plenty of attention. Does that sound like you?

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.
