Observant, Relaxed, Affectionate

Grumpy does NOT live up to his name! He is a sweet old man, who enjoys hanging around his family. Some may describe him as the ultimate companion feline!

Grumpy is not bothered by much, and is happiest when left to his own thoughts. He loves to stay close, and will even follow his humans around if he is extra intrigued by what they are doing! He would love a forever home with relaxed humans around to observe.

Large rooms with empty space for Grumpy to lounge in while keeping a lazy eye on the ongoings around him are just what this cat needs! He will thrive in a calm environment, and will not be shy when it comes to asking for attention. He may not always need pets, but when he is craving them your legs are the perfect post to rub up on as a reminder! He is patient with children, and will even tolerate a small dose of being picked up and held. Pets are by far his favorite affection!

Though Grumpy may not fit his namesake, he does respond to it! He is a smart cat who comes when he is called, especially if he knows it is mealtime! The only time you'll hear his tiny sweet mewls is when food is being prepared. Otherwise he is too chilled out to make the effort to meow.

Just like Grumpy in Snow White, this guy has a soft spot for people who feed and love him. If you are looking to add a sweet old man with a heart of gold to your family, contact APA! today to bring home Grumpy and let him show off how happy he can be!

Grumpy 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. Grumpy 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.

Grumpy 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

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.
