Independent. Loving. Relaxed.

"Do you have any more surprise stowaways up your sleeve?" - from Unhinged by A.G. Howard

You know the saying "absence makes the heart grow fonder?" Well, that couldn't be any more true about our little Stowaway. While he is an extremely loving, kind, and friendly Stowaway does enjoy some alone time. Once he's had time to relax and decompress he'll come around again for some love and attention and there won't be any doubt in your mind that attention is what he's looking for.

Occasionally, when Stowaway is ready for some love he'll come over meowing to give you the not so subtle hint to pet him. He's not an overly vocal guy but you will hear the purrs come out when he thinks you're doing an extraordinary job at snuggling.

At first, Stowaway can be a little shy around new people but he is quick to warm up. Once he feels like you've been properly acquainted he's a super loving, social, and content boy.

Stowaway sounds like one chill guy, right? To take his chill to the next level Stowaway really doesn't play that much. He does love a good scratching post but you probably won't see him running around too frequently.

We don't know how Stowaway does with other kitties or kids but he has been great around calm dogs. Currently, he's rooming with a very calm Dachshund and they get along great and really go about their own business. We think Stowaway's ideal home would be one with a relaxed environment where he can curl up on a lap and purr his little heart out while getting all the love that he deserves and then when he feels like it gets some solid alone time in.

Stowaway 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. Stowaway 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.
