Affectionate, Playful, Gorgeous
Austin has a sleek, jet black coat and the kindest eyes. You feel like he finds everything you're saying endlessly fascinating and would love to hear more! He's a friendly, affectionate and gentle kitty who enjoys following his people around the house. When it comes to play time, balls and string toys are some of his favorites. Austin gets along well with kids of a variety of ages and is good with other kitties. The neighborhood dogs that Austin has seen at a distance scare him. So, he'd probably be the most comfortable in a home with no dogs.
Austin 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. Austin is not contagious to people or dogs, but should live only with other FeLV+ cats.

If you're looking for an understanding, furry listener who has an endearing balance of playfulness and affection, then Austin would love to hear all about it! Contact APA to set up a meet and greet, and soon enough you may be telling sweet Austin all about the day you decided to bring him home!
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.
