Squishball, Loving, Well Rounded

Meet Big Boi! This black and white beauty has the most ADORABLE heart-shaped mark down the length of his nose and the fluffiest fur coat. How could anyone resist this floofy, heart-nosed, giant squishball of a sweetheart?!

Big Boi is an extremely loving and well-rounded cat -- he's calm, friendly, curious, happy, cuddly, and remarkably well behaved. He enjoys playing and will talk quite a bit in the morning when he's hungry, but he also LOVES to cuddle up next to you (purring super loudly the whole time) for some quality R&R.

Big Boi is blind in one eye due to a past injury, but he can still get around perfectly well and just needs monitoring. He must, however, remain a strictly indoor-only cat, being FeLV+ (see below paragraph for more information). He has not yet lived with other animals or children, but he would hopefully be just as loving towards them as he is towards his adult humans (though he can only live with other cats if they too are FeLV+). Big Boi is a truly wonderful companion who is incredibly deserving of a loving forever home. This sweet guy is so eager to count you among his friends and would be honored to spend the rest of his life adoring you!

Big Boi 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. Big Boi 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 Big Boi's 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.
