Facts about Booky

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Short
Booky is a beautiful black haired kitty that is full of life! Booky likes to play, and also be a lapwarmer while you're watching TV. His purrs are like a loud motor that you cannot mistake! Booky is fine with other cats and also is learning to be with dogs. So far he's doing excellent! He's been in excellent health while in the foster home and would love a home of his own!!

Booky has tested positive for FIV. He is very healthy and can live a full and happy life. Our vet has told us that cats that have FIV can have the same lifespan as any other cat as long as he is kept inside, away from sick cats and has a low stress home. These cats do not require any special medical care or medicines for the FIV and it can only be transmitted to other cats through mating or deep bite wounds. It cannot be transmitted to humans or any other type of animals.

If you can give Booky a loving home, you will realize the peacefulness that a cat like this can bring you. It is like taking a yoga class without any of the work.
We currently have 3 FIV+ cats in foster care. If you would like to meet them, please give us a call.

For more on FIV+ cats, a good source of information is located at www.pethealthnetwork.com under the cat health/cat diseases section (third page).
