Friendly. Easy-going. Big boy.

Meet Edam! He's a big fella with bright eyes and the cutest tufts of fluff at the end of his ears. At playtime he fancies himself a ferocious hunter, but he's a total softie when it comes to pets and scratches.

At first, Edam may prefer to observe you from afar, but after he's had a second to get used to you, he's good to go. He likes chin scratches and LOVES forehead scratches. When he's especially content, he'll roll onto his side and look at you with his head upside down. If it's a ploy to get more scratches, it works.

Edam likes any sort of dangly toys - ribbons, wand toys, plain old strings - but he especially loves toys that make some noise. He stalks them with laser focus and plays tug until he reels them in.

Edam hasn't met any dogs or kids to our knowledge and he's fairly indifferent about the other cats in the cattery. They don't play much, but he doesn't mind them sharing the cat tree and isn't fussy when they come through his space. He'd be perfectly fine as a solo kitty and would make a great companion for someone who wants an easy-going friend.

Edam is a healthy FIV+ (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) cat. FIV+ cats typically live long, healthy lives! For more information, please contact APA! or read this FAQ: http://bit.ly/2DPxI43

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.
