Please excuse the fact that many of Lemmy's photos are from the same photoshoot... When he's with his humans, he REALLY just wants love and pets, and he keeps trying to rub on the photographer's legs. He may not be the best model (he can definitely rock a bowtie though), but he's one heck of a wonderful cat.

Lemmy is a chill, friendly guy who seems to crave attention and wants to be near his people, but isn't much of an actual lap cat. Instead, he likes to nap beside you.

He's mostly a quiet lad, but will chirp when he's waiting for dinner. He enjoys a good window to look out of, and a comfy bed spot to lounge. He also loves cardboard scratchers!

Lemmy could likely do well with other animals (he's pretty disinterested in the household cats at his foster home), but he'd happily be an only cat, too. We suspect he has very limited vision, so Lemmy would appreciate a stable household, where he can learn to navigate and not deal with changes too often; he navigates tall dressers and many a window spot at his foster home, so he's great at figuring things out. His favorite types of pets are of the gentle variety, and he'd likely appreciate it if any children were old enough to understand that.

Lemmy has long-term medical conditions, but his foster says they're super easy to manage! He's on a prescription diet and takes a once a day pill that he tolerates well.

Lemmy 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

Lemmy also has Chronic Renal Disease, which means his kidneys are not functioning as well as they once were. This condition is so common in older cats that APA! offers a special adoption package for them. Read more about renal failure and adoption details here: https://bit.ly/2YudG90

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.
