Rescue Story:

I was originally in care to be neutered and then returned to where I was found. But it was discovered I was FIV positive, which isn't as scary as it sounds: I just need a little extra attention and monitoring.

Date of Birth: 2015

Energy Level: Low - Medium

Size (adult): Medium

Adoption Fee:

Good with Dogs? Yes
I like the dog in my foster home.
Good with Cats? No
Due to being FIV positive, which is contagious via bite wounds or scratches to other cats, it's best I go to a home with no other cats, or to a home with other FIV positive cats.
Good with Kids? Yes
Older, cat-savvy kids only please.

Critter Twitter:

Man, life is good! I was scared and nervous at first, but this home life is great! Yummy food, a dog buddy, and warm laps to curl up in. I hope you don't mind my penchant for middle of the night play sessions. #NightOwlCat #CuddleBug #FloofyFeline

About my Behaviour:

I am very shy at first, please be patient. I do warm up quickly and when I do, I will follow you around everywhere. (I'll even wait by the door while you tinkle.) Loud noises and sudden movements scare me, I would be happiest in a calmer home.

How’s my Health?

I am positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), which can make me more prone to infections. I need a little extra attention and monitoring, to make sure I stay healthy. FIV-positive cats can live normal lives both in quality and duration. Because I am FIV positive, I could be around other cats, only if we do not fight at all. The risk that a FIV-positive cat could spread the virus to a FIV-negative cat can be minimized by having us live in separate rooms until you are confident that we will not fight with each other as this disease spreads with cat bites. But it might be best for me to be the only cat in the home, unless you have other FIV positive cats.
I am neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and dewormed. Due to being special needs I am apart of the special needs promotion where my adoption fee is free!
