Playful. Sweet talker. Easy-going.

This handsome fella is Chaz. He's got the most beautiful brown and white coat and a sweet kitten-ish face.

Chaz is a gentleman with excellent cat manners. He doesn't scratch and he saves his zoomies and playtime for the daylight hours. Chaz quickly learned the routine in his foster home and at bedtime will retire with his foster mom, though he prefers under the bed! He's calm and quiet and will wait patiently for you to wake up before joining you in bed for morning pets -- ear rubs are his favorite. He will chat politely with you about what is for breakfast or how the dog is too close to him. He's a smart and companionable boy and seems to adapt quickly.

Give him a mouse on a string and Chaz can entertain himself practicing his sneak attack and pounces. If no toy is available, Chaz will make his own with a trash bag or paper sack. When he's tuckered out, he'll plop down and to sun himself by a window. He also has a hilarious quirk! He's not initially a fan of other cats, and when another cat approaches him, he starts yelling in a high-pitched meow! However, once he's spent time with the new kitty, he's been known to collapse in a cuddle puddle next to them! He just prefers a slow introduction, who can blame him?

Chaz tolerates the dogs in his foster home, but can be on guard when they're around, so we really think Chaz might prefer to live in a dog-free home. He would make an excellent companion for someone adopting their first kitty or someone who wants an easy going fella to keep them company.

Chaz 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. Chaz 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.
