Facts about Alan

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Orange Or Red (Mostly)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 7046765
  • Hair: Short

This handsome fella is Alan.  He and his sister, Wendy (also available for adoption), were living in an abandoned house in the city and were rescued right before it was to be torn down.  He got his name from the street that he lived on.  Alan is a sweet and mellow guy despite having a rough start in his life.  He is affectionate and enjoys being loved on, but he can be a bit shy until he gets to know you.  He will let you know if he has had enough attention by pushing you away with his paw, but he has never shown any aggression.  We are so thankful that we could rescue them because they would not have survived for much longer on their own as both kitties tested positive for FIV.  This is an incurable viral infection that can weaken a cat’s immune system over time if they are not properly cared for.  However, Alan is very healthy and has not had any problems since being in foster care.  Please don't let his condition scare you away - FIV kitties can lead long, normal and healthy lives simply by being kept indoors only, receiving good nutrition and care, and getting annual veterinarian check-ups – all things that every cat should receive.  FIV is difficult to transfer to other cats and the primary transmission route is through a deep bite wound.  It is not an airborne disease nor is it contagious through shared food dishes, litter boxes or grooming.  You can learn more about the FIV virus by going to  Alan gets along well with other cats and doesn't seem to mind small dogs either.  He would do best in a home without young children as they may frighten him.  Alan has been neutered, current on vaccinations and microchipped.  Tag # NC, DOB 9/19/09.
