Pet of the Week
Among the mega music superstars taking over Austin for SXSW, it turns out than none other than Van Halen will be making an appearance. No, this isn't Eddie or Alex, but instead a little kitty who came to Austin Pets Alive! in 2013 too young to survive without being fed by a bottle. Now a success story for APA!'s Bottle Baby Kitten Program, Van Halen is ready to make sweet music with his forever family.
Name: Van Halen
Breed: Domestic shorthair mix
Adult size: Small
Age: 9 months
Adoption fee: $125
Location: In foster
What APA! says about Van Halen:
Van Halen knows how to live fast and is always running around, climbing things and tumbling all over the place. You can probably assume that he also loves to "jump" as well.
He came to APA! with feline herpes, which is a common condition that resembles a cold and will cause some occasional eye goop. Luckily, this condition can easily be kept in check with a low stress environment and quality food.
Why APA! says he deserves your love:
Van Halen has always been friendly with his siblings, other cats, his foster family's small dog and gentle children. He'll probably do pretty well with anyone (except maybe David Lee Roth). We think Van Halen will fit right into any loving home, especially if he has another playful cat to run around with.
