Harvey is a sleek solid black kitty with bright green eyes. He is the kind of cat that will take some time, patience, and lots of understanding from people who will help him come out of his shell and trust people. When visiting him he seems like a shy, distant kitty but we know there is potential in him. Harvey needs and deserves a special, experienced cat owner who knows how satisfying it can be to earn the trust of a cat like this. Give Harvey a chance!
Harvey Wallbanger is FeLV+ (Feline Leukemia Virus), which causes a weakened immune system and requires special care. APA! provides some medical assistance after adoption. Cats with FeLV typically have a shortened lifespan. Harvey is not contagious to people or dogs, but should live only with other FeLV+ cats. For more information, please contact APA! or read more by our Partner, Best Friends Animal Society: http://bestfriends.org/Resources/FAQs-About-Feline-Leukemia-Virus-FeLV/
All APA! foster kittens/cats are litter box-trained, tested for FeLV/FIV, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, treated for worms/fleas, microchipped and come with a 30-day health insurance plan.
