Scrappy came in as a very beat up boy from Minneapolis Animal Control. As you can see in the video below, he is looking so much better these days but did test positive for FIV.

Scrappy is a super friendly cat with people but tends to pick on other cats, so should probably be an only cat. 

FIV is NOT a death sentence. From the ASPCA: 'An FIV-infected cat may not show any symptoms for years. Once symptoms do develop, however, they may continually progress—or a cat may show signs of sickness interspersed with health for years.'

FIV is only contagious to other cats through deep bight wounds, and is not contagious to other species or humans. He also has had his teeth filed down so would likely be unable to inflict a deep bite wound even if he wanted to. Here are answers to some more commonly asked questions about FIV:

FIV scares many people off, but it doesn't need to. Scrappy is hoping you will be the person who can educate yourself about FIV and give him a chance!

Scrappy's adoption fee is reduced to $50 but a thorough background and reference check will be conducted.

Contact Megan at if you want more information or to meet Scrappy!
