HISTORY: HARMAA ('gray' in Finnish) was rescued by Dew Paws Rescue and found to be FIV+. However, as is typical with many FIV+ cats he has no symptoms, is in excellent health and expected to live a normal lifespan. While conventional thinking is to only place an FIV+ cat in a home with no other cats or with another FIV+ cat, there are many “mixed households”. According to Cornell University, the primary mode of Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) transmission is through repeated fights resulting in the exchange of blood, and it poses no threat to humans or other species. If you would like to consider HARMAA for adoption but need more information on FIV, please feel free to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
so we can provide you with links to educational websites.
TEMPERAMENT: A bit shy at first, HARMAA can even hiss at times before he's comfortable, but that's all bluster. He will soon warm up once petted for a while, once he overcomes his fear response. HARMAA is a handsome boy with a short coat and brown tabby markings.
