50% professional cuddler, 20% demander of brushing, 10% giver of enthusiastic head butts, 10% eater of even the dry kibble, 10% filler of empty small places. Mr. Not A Dog just wants to be around his people. His place is wherever you are and he has no problem asking for affection with a head butt. He loves to be petted and brushed and would prefer if you hang out with him while he eats. When served his daily canned food, Mr. will often run between his bowl and you as if unable to make up his mind what is the most awesome thing at that moment.

Mr. recently had surgery to correct an eyelid condition that constantly irritated his eyes and caused him to keep them closed. While recovering he was a very good boy easily taking multiple medications a day. Now that he's recovered, he wants to see all the things and is enjoying window watching and feather chasing. He's still a young cat, so it's not hard to entice him into play. So far Mr. hasn't met a food he didn't like. The same can't be said of his foster sister, Miss Definitely A Dog. He isn't quite sure what to do about her yet.

Mr. Not a Dog is a healthy FIV+ (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) cat. FIV+ cats typically live long, healthy lives! For more information, please contact APA! or read this FAQ: http://bit.ly/2DPxI43

Mr. Not a Dog 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. Mr. Not a dog 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.
