HISTORY: SPYRO was rescued by a kind person who unfortunately cannot keep him, so he is looking for a forever home. During a vet visit, SPYRO was recently diagnosed as positive for the feline leukemia virus (FELV). Since he is likely to be a carrier of the virus, SPYRO needs an indoor home with no other cats, an FELV+ cat, or a healthy adult who has been vaccinated against the virus. FELV suppresses the immune system and is specific to felines; it cannot be transmitted to other animal species or to humans.
TEMPERAMENT: SPYRO can be a bit shy at first with new people, but soon turns into a very friendly and laid-back kitty. He likes to be petted, but isn't exactly a 'lap cat.' SPYRO loves to play with catnip, feathered toys and wands. He also loves playing with other cats and will befriend them quickly, but he is afraid of dogs. SPYRO is a handsome boy with a short coat and brown tabby markings with large white areas.
AGE: born approx. 9/1/10.
