My name is Charlie and I had a big, bad adventure last summer.  There was a big fire, called the Valley Fire, where I lived with my family.  It came so fast they had no time to look for me before they had to run!  For 3 months  I didn't know what happened to them.  I waited, living in the debris that had been my neighborhood.  My home and people were gone and everything I knew had changed.  I was scared and so I hid and no one could find me for a long time.  Strangers came around and put food out in case I was still alive. Finally they saw me and brought me to safety.  I was so happy!  So was my family!! But, they have lost everything, and can't take proper care of me.  I am FIV+ which doesn't bother me at all.  But it means I need to stay inside where it is safe and warm, and have good food and no stress.  My family wants me to live in a home where I can live a long happy life but they can't give that to me any more.

I am such a sweet boy!  I love to cuddle.  You'd think I'd be traumatized, after all I've been through, but I still love people.  if you give me a little time to settle in, we will be best friends!  I used to live with other cats, but now I'm not too happy about having others around.  I really want my own home.  I don't like dogs, but I do love kids!

Aside from the FIV test, I am a healthy boy.  Most FIV+ cats live long and healthy lives.  It's just best if we don't go outside and get exposed to things or get into fights.  After spending 3 months all by myself outside, I will be SO HAPPY to spend the rest of my life inside cuddled up with you!

***

Charlie has been through so much!  His FIV+ status requires an indoor only home, but doesn't require any special treatment.  His current foster mom survived the fire, but her landlord lost his place to the fire, so now she is losing her place to him.  We don't want to bounce Charlie around; he's ready for his forever home.   Will you be Charlie's Angel and give him a home for Christmas?

Please note:

  • Valley Fire Charlie would do best as an only child
  • Valley Fire Charlie needs a home with no dogs
  • Indoor only
