My story:

Hi!  My name is Morris. I am very friendly, but do not like to be picked up.  I will follow you around to be petted. I also like playing with toys and lying in the sunshine. I probably would be best in a home without small children.  I am also FIV+.

Feline Immunodeficiency Virus is primarily transmitted through bite wounds.  This means that it can be possible to house a cat with FIV with other cats without the virus, as long as they get along and it's a stable household.  At ARC, all of our cats are tested for FIV and those with the virus live in a special house dedicated just to them.  There is a vaccine for FIV to help prevent its spread, but it isn't widely used.  You may want to discuss this option with your vet if you are thinking about adopting an FIV+ cat and you already have a cat.  Cats with FIV can have a normal lifespan and enjoy a healthy life, but may require more frequent veterinary care as they are more susceptible to upper respiratory infections and dental disease, among other things.

Won’t you please consider giving me a forever home?

My ideal home:

I'd do well in an affectionate, loving home...
