Additional Details

Whisker is a quiet, shy fellow who likes comfy beds and being petted gently. He is looking for a relaxed home with patient people who will give him time to settle in.

This cat has tested positive for feline immunodeficiency virus. FIV attacks the immune system leaving a cat vulnerable to recurrent infections. There currently is no cure for FIV, but infected cats can live fairly normal lives for years. FIV is transmitted through deep bite wounds. Casual contact such as sharing food/water bowls, mutual grooming, etc. is unlikely to spread FIV. However, we recommend that this cat be an only cat or live with other FIV+ cats. More info is on this cat's kennel, but if you have questions, please consult your regular veterinarian before adoption.

This cat is available for adoption at ARL Main but is not located in our general adoption area. If you're interested in meeting this cat, please find a staff member so you can start bonding!
