Love! Love! Love! Everyone likes love! Well, meet Max Volt! This cat is a devoted lover! He's ready for you to take him to his forever home.

This guy is a charmer. First of all he looks like a silly goof! On his nose he has a couple of brown spots - cute! His ears are big and his legs are long and gangly. He won't stay this way for long because he utilizes his foster human's house like he has a membership at a gym. Every day he runs and scampers around furniture to burn off his energy. Then he'll walk about with his long tail stuck straight up. This is how he shows you he is happy.

He rates high on the affection scale. Give him a chance to get petted or picked up and he's willing. Sit down and he's on your lap, waiting for you to scratch his ear and neck. He knows if he stretches out his body that most likely he'll receive a tummy rub or maybe a brushing to his fur.

He's curious and spends time on patrol to determine what's around the corner or behind a closed door. One never knows when a new object may mysteriously appear, or someone may have just walked into the house.

His preference is to be around humans or another kitty with similar temperaments, opposed to spending time alone. His likes to be right beside you! Whether you are working, lounging on the couch, or asleep for the night, he likes to be close by you. Just allow him to curl up at your feet or next to your head.

He's fun to play with, especially with a wand toy. Watch him run and jump, trying to capture that bright object on the end. He'll have you laughing at his silly moves.

He has a thing for water. He'll accept water out of his bowls, but prefers to drink from the shower floor, the sink, or your cup setting on the edge of the coffee table. Look out! Get this boy his own kitty fountain!

He's also a good communicator. Tell him he can't get into the refrigerator and he'll question your decision. Shut him out of a room and you'll hear him on the other side telling you he wants in. His "meows" will make one laugh, but usually last only a short time. Then he's off to where ever his human leads him.

He does fine with other cats, especially a cat that likes to play versus a cat that enjoys a slow, sedate pace. He hasn't yet experienced a dog or child. He's a social, friendly cat and most likely could easily adapt if provided with slow, introductions to calm critters and/or gentle children.

Sometimes homeless cats who have not received proper veterinary care may have a condition called Feline Leukemia. By the time Max Volt arrived at the shelter, he had been exposed.

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. Max Volt 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.

Max Volt's ideal forever home would be with family members who happily share their space, water and activities with him. He would be fine having another critter friend, whether it is a friendly dog or another FeLV+ cat. Please remember that another cat would need to also have FeLV, and they would need to remain indoors.

Come and see this Don Juan type of guy, and start a new adventure!

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.
