Picnic Potat's name couldn't be more purrfect! He loves to eat, and he is the best couch potato around! This calm boy adores humans, and likes to spend most of his days lounging around in the same room as his people, and occasionally asking for pets.

Picnic Potat is also the four-leaf-clover of cats, in that he fully enjoys belly rubs - and will roll over to give you better access! Even better for him to show off his adorable white belly, and wave his sock paws around! Speaking of which, we've just discovered this boy not only loves belly rubs, but also feet rubs! The two no-nos of all cats. He's truly one in a gazillion. Picnic is quite the affectionate cat and will purr the afternoon away while receiving love!

A loving and calm environment is just what Picnic Potat is looking for! He came from an outside situation where the catty community ferals were bullying him. He is so thankful to be in a safe space to fully relax and be his true lazy self! A home with equally chill and friendly people around sounds purrfect to Picnic Potat! He may do well with younger children as long as they can respect his space and boundaries-which he will show without using his claws or teeth! While his previous experience with other cats has not been ideal, if there were another similarly calm and independent feline around, Picnic Potat could easily adjust to having a sibling!

This sweet boy is just looking for a companion family to spend his days lounging with. Picnic Potat would fit into a calm and relaxed environment with no problem, and happily purr his appreciation for the love and pets that hopefully keep on coming! Contact APA! today to set up a virtual meet and greet and add him to your family!

Picnic Potat 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. Picnic Potat 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.

Picnic Potat has stomatitis which is an inflammation of the mouth. It is typically resolved through removal of teeth and supportive care. He currently requires some extra medical care which may include medications and specialized diet. For more information, please contact APA!

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.
