Squishy rates as high as it gets on friendliness, affection, playfulness, and just being an all-around fun cat. Some cats are aloof, but not squishy...not by a long shot! He loves to be near his human house companions, and any resident dogs and cats. In his current foster home, Squishy claims his spot on the bed for nighttime snuggles right alongside the dog. And that's no ordinary dog, but a Great Dane. Does that intimidate Squishy? Not at all! In fact, Squishy is a glutton for love from his very large dog-mate and always wants to be near him.

No grump is Squishy just because he has a seeing impairment. He certainly doesn't let the fact that he has only one eye with partial sight get in his way. He's an active guy always searching for the next fun thing to do. He is very outgoing and playful and will try to engage any two-legged or four-legged friend in the action. If his foster guardians or the Great Dane won't play with him, he'll amuse himself with his toys. He delights in playing with others and alone.

Squishy needs to be in the middle of the action so he is the type of cat who would do well in a busy home. And he will provide loads of entertainment with his uniquely amusing and charming behaviors. You might catch him just walking along and suddenly throwing himself on the floor and rolling on his back with his tummy in the air for no apparent reason. What a personality!

As you might expect, Squishy is a vocal guy: "Meow, Meow (Hey look at me!) He'll let you know when he is looking for company. And, of course any company will do. So if you have a home with cats*, dogs, children, whatever, he'll be a happy addition to the brood. His foster guardian puts it this way: "He is a great cat . . . perfect for any family!

Not all cats will fit in anywhere, but it looks as if Squishy will. So if you have been looking for a cat that has everything except one eye, Squishy is your guy. Call APA! today to learn more about Squishy.

*Squishy 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. Squishy 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.
