Koi is a totally cool, extremely likable dude! He is about 1.5 years old, gets along great with other cats and dogs (that's more than we can say about most fish), and really just wants a place to lounge around and hang out - can't you sympathize?
You see, Koi used to live in a house with LOTS of other cats. We're not talking one, two, three cats....we're talking DOZENS (like more than 50) cats. And that's not all! Koi's family wasn't taking care of this gaggle of kitties (how could they?) so they were removed from the home and taken to the SPCA. Here Koi got the daily nourishment he craved and the medical care he needed - but he didn't get the loving family he so deserved.
You see, the nice people at the SPCA tested Koi and his friends and found out that MANY of them were positive for FIV. Even though FIV+ cats do not infect others once neutered, and they can live a totally normal and healthy life - this still scares most adopters. We get it - we're scared of things we don't understand too. But Koi is fearless. He doesn't know that he has FIV and he doesn't care because he is happy and healthy. After a few long months at the SPCA - Lucky You! scooped up this handsome guy and now he's been in foster care with us for another few months.
We don't understand why no one will give this amazing little fellow a chance. If you're looking for a cat that is chill (not a scratcher, not a biter, not a litter box misser), a cat that is sweet (a lover of kittens, cats, dogs, and humans), and a cat that is downright deserving of a home (from hoarding situation, to shelter, to foster care) - then Koi is the man for you! So, jump in, the water's fine - and the fish are even better! ADOPT KOI!
