Male/DSH/White and Gray
Good with other cats
My name is Valentine and I have a special request. I know it’s not officially Valentine’s Day, but I would really love to be someone’s “Valentine” right now. My unofficial birthday is 6/1/2009, and I spent the first few years of my life living outside in the parking lot of my rescue, but the inside looked so cozy and warm that I stared in the window to come inside. OAR set me up with a fabulous Foster Mom where I learned to trust and love people! I’ll greet you when you walk in the door and flop in front of you so you know I mean business (petting business that is). I have a very handsome thick coat, I adore being brushed, and I even enjoy a teaser game every now and then. Since I’m still getting used to people, I can sometimes startle, but I recover quickly. I am ready to meet new people and look for my forever home. Please give me a chance to change your life! I’m pretty sure I will be the best VALENTINE you will ever receive. I ‘paw’mise.
Valentine has tested positive for FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus), a disease that suppresses his immune system. But Valentine is a perfectly healthy cat, with no signs of being slowed down by FIV! Most cats with FIV live long, healthy lives with no symptoms at all. The disease is not spread through casual contact -- like the sharing of litter boxes, water and food bowls, or through snuggling and playing with other cats. FIV is almost exclusively spread through deep penetrating bite wounds, and a neutered/spayed FIV+ cat is extremely unlikely to infect other cats if properly introduced. Valentine is relatively indifferent to other cats (he's more interested in getting love and lots of petting) and would undoubtedly fit in seamlessly to any home.
