Enzo: Courtesy Post
Domestic Short Hair
8 years 3 months.
Enzo is a sweet boy who seeks human attention and allows you to pick him up despite having led a rough life on the streets. He�s 11 pounds and has a good appetite. He had some scabs from minor wounds when we rescued him and some small bare patches on his coat, which the vet said should grow back. He seems grateful to be off the streets, starting his new life. I think he would like to live with other friendly cats but would not be miserable as a single cat. Sometimes I let him out of the crate for brief supervised explorations. If my cat hisses at him, Enzo hisses back but he does not initiate aggression. Aside from his FIV status, he�s pretty healthy. He can jump to high ledges; likes to have a perch, like most cats. He likes pets but sometimes gets overwhelmed if you pet him for too long, and he hisses. I think he'll stop doing this as he gets more adjusted to indoor life with humans. Enzo 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. To apply for Enzo, email [email protected]
