Paddington Bear is a regal and handsome kitty who came to Tree House in March of 2016 from a foster. Paddy Bear (as his foster called him) is a super sweet, mellow boy who loves being around people. He adores cheek and chin pets and being brushed, but isn’t too fond of having his belly rubbed. He loves sitting next to people and snuggling up close, and he’ll start purring as soon as you start petting him! Paddington Bear is a chill cat who would do great either as a single cat in a home where he can get lots of love and attention, or with one or two other mellow cats who will give him space to do his own thing - his foster did mentioned that he enjoys having friends! Paddington Bear is FIV+ and will need to be on a high quality diet due to some occasional tummy issues and sensitive skin. His ideal home would be a place where he can relax and gaze out the window in the company of a human who gives him lots of pets and love!
*Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) causes a weakening of the immune system in cats. It's often compared to human HIV, but FIV is not transferable to humans or other species. It is also difficult to transfer to other sterilized cats, and we believe that mixed FIV and non-FIV households can work if managed properly. If kept indoors in a stress-free environment, with regular medical care and high-quality nutrition, most FIV+ cats live long and healthy lives. Tree House staff can help answer your questions to see if an FIV+ cat is the right choice for you.
