Ale exudes curiosity. He is first to investigate any new toy or food dish, and will give you a good long sniff when you greet him. When it comes to investigations, Ale is a champion. He loves pets and rewards with loud purrs. He will meow softly if you stop showering him with attention before he is done. Ale is particularly fond of high places (cat trees, book shelves, and top bunk beds). He is a fun-loving young guy who has affection to share with you and other furry friends.

Ale was rescued by animal control along with his brother, Kolsch, and three sisters (India, Gose, and Lager). At intake, these boys stood out from the rest of their litter, testing positive for feline leukemia (FeLV+). Special arrangements were in order, and the tabby brothers headed off to a temporary foster home where they were intensively socialized and blossomed into the endearing cats they are today.

The young brothers are still very active kittens who run and tumble, jump and climb. They purr with abandon and like to snuggle at nap time. Small toy mice are a particular favorite, and Ale likes to “dip” his mice in his water bowl. Because of their FeLV+ status, they should only be housed with other FeLV+ cats, dogs, or other non-feline pets. Ideally, we’d love to see the brothers be adopted as a pair.
