Gratefully a kind person found me and took me to a cat shelter. I am a gentle cat and I really did well during the car ride to the shelter. I love people. When I was caged, I would sit by my cage door and talk to the staff and volunteers, asking for attention. If they would open the cage door, I would rub against their hand, purring with joy. Now that I am free roaming, I also enjoy the company of other cats. I especially like my little roommate Kismet. At times you may find us sleeping peacefully, curled up next to each other. At other times we love to play.
My neck wound is almost healed and I am ready to find an adoptive or foster home. I did test positive for FIV, but please do not let this label scare you. FIV positive cats tend to live good quality, long lives. FIV spreads via penetrating bite wounds between cats only. It has no effect on humans, nor on dogs, nor on any other non-feline species. Ideally I need a home with another FIV positive cat or without another cat. Please stop by to meet me - Niven the little saint.
