After a full veterinary examination—and a good grooming to his long, soft, white fur—it was determined that Lincoln is a three year old special needs cat. Lincoln lived on the street after being ear tipped and neutered and has FIV in addition to being a carrier of FeLV. Lincoln does not display any signs of being sick and is a laid back gigantic purr machine who loves to cuddle. Each of the veterinarians and groomer who’ve met Lincoln this far has fallen in love with him. He is very cooperative and appreciative of all the attention he’s been getting.
Having FIV and FeLV is a precursor to being sensitive to infections and immediate veterinary care is necessary if signs of sickness or infection appear. In addition, FeLV can be transmitted to other kitties through grooming and water sharing—so Lincoln should be in a home by himself or with another FeLV positive cat.
When Mr. Lincoln presented himself, he was just crying out for love. He gives and responds so well to love and deserves a happy life in a home with a compassionate owner who can look after him and make sure that he stays safe.

* Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) causes a weakening of the immune system in cats. It's often compared to human HIV, but FIV is not transferable to humans or other species. It is also difficult to transfer to other sterilized cats. FIV+ cats can live with non-FIV cats without transferring the disease. If kept indoors in a stress-free environment, with regular medical care and high-quality nutrition, most FIV+ cats live long and healthy lives.
