Estimated to be three years old, John came to us from a rural rescue that does not adopt out cats who test positive for FIV. As a consequence of this rescue's policies around FIV, John spent an entire year living in a small cage at a vet office.
Many people do not realize that FIV+ cats can lead long and healthy lives. And it is very difficult for other cats to catch unless they get into serious fights that involve biting. Since fights like that don't happen often and John is so cat-friendly, it is very unlikely he could ever be contagious to another cat.
Sweet John really wants to be part of your family and settle in for years of snuggling. Won't you reach out to this affectionate guy who has been patiently waiting for such a long time?
