Meet Jeffrey! Jeffrey is believed to be around 2 years old. In September his previous owners decided to move and took the dog but not the cat. He was going to neighbors houses for food and living in an abandoned house across the street. One of the neighbors wanted him but had a dog who did not like cats so she called us to rescue. I now have this wonderful loving cat in my foster home. He is so affectionate. He is most definitely a lap cat and has the loudest meow when you greet him. Jeffrey just wants to be next to you and likes to play with strings. When we had him neutered he was also tested for FIV. He came back positive for FIV or feline immunodeficiency virus.

FIV is a virus that attacks the immune system. While not a death sentence for these cats, catching a cold or other virus can be much harder on them to clear. FIV is contracted by deep bite wounds so you can imagine what this poor boy had to go through outside. Despite what appears to have been a bite that caused his FIV, there are no signs of any altercation and his coat is beautiful. He enjoyed his bath except for the dryer!!! There is usually nothing different in caring for these babies then any other cat. This is a feline virus that humans can not get. There is no medications or special treatment needed for a FIV cat. Just like with your own cat if you see something amiss they should go to a vet sooner rather than later because of a lower immune system. He should stay a indoor cat only. Otherwise, nothing about owning a FIV positive cat take any extra effort or expense during their good years! They are just like normal cats.

Jeffrey has not been exposed to other cats so probably would do best as an only cat. He seems to be ok around dogs. Please give him a chance to have a forever inside home!
