Confident, curious, adorable

Wild Air has the most gorgeous, emerald-like eyes, beautiful, watercolor-like markings swirling in silver, white, and tan, and confidence to spare. It didn't take him long to get settled in his foster home - he immediately began exploring, getting a good whiff of all the new things. Wild Air likes to hang out with his foster humans much of the time; though he isn't a lap cat, he loves to sit next to them, rub against their legs, and even drape himself across their shoulders. When he's particularly sleepy, he'll stretch out and even allow belly rubs. He is quite friendly and will follow his humans around the house, chirping sweetly. But Wild Air isn't needy; he is also content to hang out by himself from time to time.

Wild Air is still fairly young and has a good amount of energy. He doesn't have a favorite cat toy; in fact, he seems to prefer chasing his tail and rolling around on the floor when he's feeling frisky. He sometimes gently nips at his foster parents' ankles when they walk by; he doesn't bite hard or aggressively, but it is something to be aware of. Likewise, Wild Air is an early riser - he prefers to be up and about between 5:30 and 7:00 AM, and he prefers his humans do the same. An adorable sentient alarm clock, Wild Air likes to jump on the bed or chirp. He seems to prefer horizontal scratchers to vertical scratchers.

Though Wild Air is an intrepid explorer, he is not a fan of loud noise and would do best in a quieter environment. The ideal forever home for Wild Air would have room to explore and chase his tail and loving humans who are looking for a fun sidekick.

Wild Air 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. Wild Air 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.
