Dylan, perfectly adorable but "aloof"

Dylan is a really cute little guy. He's lived outside and was fed by a woman who never really understood him, and when he got sick, she didn't want him back. Because of this, he was never really socialized, but has been around her most of his life. He is in a small cage now because he was being treated for a skin infection, now cleared up, and because of this, I think he's still a little frightened when someone comes at him, even to pet him. However, once you feed him, while he is eating, he LOVES being petted. So, I think he has a very, very good chance of taming/being socialized by the right person, who wants to give this sweet boy a new lease on life. Dylan was already rubbing up against this woman, asking to be petted, when he got sick, so he really, truly has great potential for the right person!

Special Needs:
Dylan is FIV+. FIV is the equivalent of HIV in humans, but is NOT TRANSMISSABLE TO HUMANS OR OTHER ANIMALS, nor is it easily transmissable to other cats. On the contrary, despite what some vets are still telling people, those of us in the cat rescue business almost invariably have FIV+ kitties mixed in with our other cats WITHOUT PROBLEMS! Unneutered cats who fight, and females with HIV who give it to their kittens at birth are the most common ways cats are exposed. Unless a cat continues to be a fighter after being neutered (some do, but relatively few) there is no problem. Just as with HIV, one does not get it by kissing, or casual contact, or sharing food or drink, but by contact with bodily fluids in mucous membranes or blood. The majority of neutered males never fight again, and unless they fight and there is a deep puncture wound, it is extremely rare for a cat to transmit FIV to another cat. However, he would be a very good "only" kitty for someone willing to take Dylan on; someone who likes a challenge, and is willing to be patient and wait for him to completely trust you. Once he does that, he is truly yours forever!

About Feral Cat Foundation

About Our Rescue Group...

The Feral Cat Foundation (FCF) is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization whose primary mission is to help people live with the feral and forgotten cats and kittens in the communities of Alameda and Contra Costa counties of northern California. We accomplish this through the nationally-recognized and effective method of "TNR" (trap-neuter-return). When possible, tame cats and kittens are adopted to loving homes. Cats that cannot be socialized are returned to the location where they were trapped and fed daily by caring volunteers. The lack of resources and a sanctuary prevent FCF from being able to take owner surrenders, rescue cats from shelters, or remove cats from neighborhoods.
