Piper is a sweet, outgoing little cat looking for her forever home. When she meets new people, she marches right up to them as if to say hello, but she's not demanding. Piper is more than happy to just sit near her person, enjoying their company and watching what they're doing. If she gets some pets, all the better, and she'll politely request you not stop via her small mew.

While Piper has no problem making human friends, she likes it when other cats stay at least 2 feet away from her. Any closer and she's going to give them a piece of her mind! A forever home without other cats, or with cats who would give her a nice wide berth, would be best.

If you've been thinking that having a little buddy around to keep you company would be just the ticket, come meet Piper!

Piper 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. Piper 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.

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.
