Oscar is extremely playful, but you can skip the cat toys! He would rather sprint around the house than play with anything you may accidentally drop on the floor, like contact cases or ornaments. You can expect him to keep you company in the kitchen, and he may get vocal (especially if there's tuna or eggs!). When it's time to cuddle, you may find him relaxing in the window sill or sunbathing on the couch. He has excellent behavior including good litter box habits, calmly gets his nails trimmed, and hardly scratches anything at all.
Oscar is positive for 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. He 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/
With some cats Oscar is rambunctiously playful; others he peacefully ignores. He is great with people of all sizes, so if you're looking for a feline companion that will sleep on your bed and hang out with you on the couch - Oscar is your furry fella!
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.
