A very nice man found me as a stray a couple of years ago and took me home. When he took me to the vet, it was discovered that I am FIV positive, but that didn’t make any difference to him. He loved me and took great care of me and his other cats. My world was so perfect.

I enjoy having fun with other cats and can get quite playful. He described me as a gentle and easy-going cat that would often roll over for belly rubs. I am an affectionate guy that can at times be quite talkative when I want attention. He also commented that I was a well-behaved guy, using my scratching post faithfully and always happy to relax in his lap.

Unfortunately, when my guardian became homeless, we all had to say our goodbyes and I wasn’t sure what was going to happen. My feline friends in the FIV suite have all reassured me that everything is OK and that I don’t have to be afraid. This has me feeling really good ... even though I am sad to have lost my home, it is reassuring for my guardian to know that I will be well taken care of until I find a new home.
