Domestic Short Hair

Vasily was so starved for affection as a stray that he'd roll around on the sidewalk, begging for pets! His teeth ended up having a lot of decay and tartar and were causing him discomfort, so he's had extensive dental work done. Now he's all fixed up and this gentle guy is ready for his new home. He's great with children and adults, but he's very timid with other cats, which is why he should be a single. Vasily is FIV positive and FeLV negative. Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) is a lentivirus, like HIV, that affects cats around the world. FIV is only contagious among cats and difficult to transmit. It is also slow-acting, so cats generally do not show any symptoms until years after being infected. The amount of time it takes for the virus to make a cat become immune compromised can vary, but once symptomatic, FIV positive cats are more vulnerable to contracting other diseases. However, with the proper care, FIV positive cats can live healthy, happy lives. Email [email protected] to apply!
