Refined. Calm. Loving.

Sleek and sophisticated, this senior fella is looking for a furr-ever home where he can be treated like the royalty he is. Dukealicious is a very cool cat. He likes to spend a lot of time napping, preferably next to you while you scratch his ears and brush his beautiful coat. Dukealicious loves this kind of pampering and will return the affection with his gentle head butts and soothing purrs.

When he's not napping, Dukealicious likes to follow his person around the house. Whether you are getting up for a cup of tea or going to bed, Duke will be right at your feet. If you'll let him, he'd prefer to sleep at your feet each night.

Dukealicious 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. Dukealicious 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

Duke's such a calm guy, we think the perfect home for him would be a quiet, calm environment with a family who has a lot of love to give. Does that sound like you?

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.
