Timmy may be a senior, but he has the cutest little baby face! The rest of him is pretty darn adorable too. He has a gorgeous orange tabby coat and the most charming crook in his tail.

If Timmy were a human he'd be the tall, skinny kid who has a few close friends and spends a lot of time reading. At first he didn't care much for people, (he didn't trust them) but his foster siblings demonstrated to him that humans are OK. In fact, humans are awesome! When they come around there's always skritches and Temptation treaties!

Timmy likes to sleep under the tower at the cattery, but sometimes he finds a comfy spot in his group enclosure where he can bask in the sunshine, (and we can bask in his cuteness). He's a super friendly kitty, and gets a lot of love from our volunteers and visitors. He loves face scratches, and he is open to some side-belly rubs, too. If you'd like to pick him up for a snuggle, you're invited! Especially if you happen to have a few treats in your pocket.

Timmy came to us from a foster home where he lived with a few other cats, including Pasquale, a fluffy dude who serves as sort of an uncle to Timmy. Since he was fostered with a few other cats, and is now staying in a group room, we'd like to see him go home with another quiet kitty, or into a home where a FeLVie needs a friend! Having other cats around help Timmy to feel comfortable and confident.

Timmy is a sweet delight, contact us to meet him!

Timmy 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. Timmy 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.
