Big Boy is such a sweet kitty! This handsome 8 year old was a stray who really wants to be a pet. Big Boy is FIV + which is not transferable to dogs or humans. He can live with other FIV + cats too. Big Boy has really neat markings on his ears. He is a such nice kitty. If you are looking for a great cat you should meet Big Boy.

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.
