Man-of-the-House, Inquisitive, Playful

Number 5 would like you to forget that ranking immediately, and accept him as the new leader of your household! He may be young, but he has much wisdom to share and energy to burn off wherever he pleases! (Not really, but he does enjoy spending some time in nature if it is accessible to him!)

After a few days of settling in, and learning his new surroundings Number 5 will start to blossom! He is quick to realize that new humans are friends after a small adjustment period. Once that trust is earned, he is a loyal man! He also welcomes new animal friends, and gets along wonderfully with the big, calm, and goofy german shepherd in his foster home! Number 5 would adore some kitten friends to roll around with too. Playmates are high on his must-have list!

Once Number 5 has used up some of his kitten energy, he has taken to finding a cozy sunpatch to settle down for a nap. Bonus points if his fur-ever home also has an enclosed patio for him to snooze in!

Contact APA! today to bring this playful and curious boy into your family! He can't wait to move past his initial nervousness and settle in as the leader of the pack!

Number 5 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. Number 5 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.
