Hercules is a big, handsome 3 & 1/2 year old short-haired black with a tiny white neck pendant neutered male. He is very sweet and loves pets and attention, but does not care to be picked up or held. He was rescued as a stray who'd been fending for himself on the streets for too long which show in his scars. He gets along well with his docile FIV+ roommates. He is FIV+ which is the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. It is only contagious to other cats. It means his immune system is a little weaker than average, but most cats with FIV live long healthy lives if they are in a safe, indoor only, calm environment . They have been adopted with other FIV+ cats and many people have adopted FIV+ cats who have non-FIV cats without their non-FIV cats contracting it. Please discuss with your Veterinarian to help you decide. There is a vaccination for FIV that you can discuss with you Veterinarian as well.We don't know about dogs, but he might be O.K. with cat-friendly dogs. He should not be around young children, but should be O.K. with cat-friendly older children who will not try to pick him up. Come meet this sweet big boy.
