Facts about Hamilton

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Tiger Striped
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 16C01033
  • Hair: Short
Hamilton is such a nice cat! He is a mellow guy who loves to be held and interact with people. He is 8 years old and a social worker brought him in when his owner had health problems and couldn't take care of him any more. The social worker didn't know much about him but he has been at the shelter since January and is just a great cat. Hamilton is FIV+ which is not transferable to humans or dogs. He should be the only cat or live with other FIV+ cats. Please don't pass Hamilton by if you are looking for a pet. He would love to have a home again!

Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) has been associated with cats for many years, although it was only labelled as such as recently as 1986. The virus depletes the number of white blood cells, which eventually makes the cat less able to fight off infection. However, because it is such a slow acting virus many FIV positive cats can enjoy a normal lifespan with no apparent health problems resulting from the virus.

All cats receive one or more vaccinations, a basic veterinary examination, are wormed and spayed/neutered and feline leukemia tested. Cats 3 months and older are micro-chipped.
