This is a courtesy post for a very nice family. Here is what foster dad, Richard, has to say about Blackie:
"Blackie is about 3 yrs. old, a once outside cat. After providing him food and our comfy shelter next to our deck, and several weeks of socialization, we took him in when the weather turned cold. He's friendly, playful, curious, loves to be around you, and seems to enjoy all the new things in a house, including the TV. He is neutered, has all his shots (except the FeL booster), has been wormed and rid of fleas. I'm still treating him for ear mites. Blackie tested positive for FIV, so he would be best in a single cat home, or with another FIV cat. He got along with my daughter's dog, but he and one of our pride do not get along well. We've had two FIV cats before. One we adopted out, and the second, Tux, gave us the pleasure of his company and his love for ten years. So we know FIV cats can enjoy a good life, but we already have four feline companions, including one with special needs. Blackie deserves a good life, too, and he has a lot to give in return."
