Nacho Aficionado was rescued from the streets as a kitten and spent his first year in a shelter. A kind foster took him in, and he was so astonished and grateful to discover the joys of being in a loving home - and especially being in a warm lap!

Nacho has turned into a total lover boy. He would happily spend 24x7 in your lap, gazing up at you with his soulful eyes, and purring his gratitude. He also likes to curl up next to you in bed at night.

Nacho does enjoy the occasional game of chase-the-string-toy, but he's not a fanatic about it. He might bat a ball around from time to time. He has also become great buddies with Anchovy Enthusiast, the other cat in his foster home. They curl up together for naps and sit together bird-watching at the window. He's unperturbed by his foster's friendly dog.

When he was younger, Nacho had to have his teeth removed. But his mouth feels so much better now, and he can easily eat both dry and wet food. His absolute favorite is Sheba Roasted Turkey pate!

Nacho does get startled if you put your hand in front of his face, so when petting him, it's best to start by bringing your hand up behind his head. After he's all relaxed from petting, he'll let you comb him a little bit. He's not one to luxuriate in being combed, but he'll accept a little bit every day or so and that's enough to keep his coat in tip-top shape. He hides from visitors and needs some time to get used to new people.

Nacho Aficionado 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. Nacho Aficionado 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.

If you're looking for an easygoing lover-boy kitty, contact us today to arrange a meet-and-greet!

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.
