Facts about Figaro

  • Breed: Domestic Longhair
  • Color: Black (All)
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male
  • Hair: Long
My name is Figaro, and although my story is a sad one, it has a happy ending! I was surrendered by my previous owner at an animal control facility in Los Angeles. For some reason that I don’t understand, my owner told them I was FIV positive (which I am NOT). Being FIV positive in shelters is a death sentence, and I moved up to the top of the euthanasia list. I completely shut down in the shelter, and was so traumatized from being abandoned that I just curled up in a ball in the corner. I was profoundly depressed and sad, and was about to be euthanized.

Fortunately, some kind friends saw a post about me on facebook, and they rescued me! I went to the vet and got tested for FIV, and I was NEGATIVE! My rescuers soon found out that I am in GREAT health, and incredibly friendly and kind.

It took me a couple of weeks to recover from the trauma of the shelter, but I am now happy and healthy and ready for my forever home! I am VERY kind, friendly and sweet, and I love being pet and brushed. I am a very sensitive soul, so I need a peaceful, indoor only home. I get quite frightened of other kitties, so I would be best in a single cat home, or with a kitty friend who is very gentle.

I am fixed, FIV/FELV negative, I have been microchipped and I am up to date on my shots. I hope to find my forever humans soon so I can give them all of my love!
