Hi! Thanks for giving me some attention! I'd like you to know that I've already been spayed or neutered. At Animal Friends, dogs and cats also leave fully up-to-date on shots and microchipped. All I need now is to find someone who will love me. Please ask to meet with an adoption counselor, so we can be properly introduced and talk about what kind of pet you're looking for. We can discuss whether you're looking for a lap pet or a social butterfly, an 'only pet' or a furry 'sibling' for kids or other animals. Best of all, by adopting from Animal Friends, you make it possible for them to rescue and care for another pet who truly needs help. So, what are you waiting for? Let's sit down together! *****************************************************

Solar is a ray of sunshine that initially hid behind the clouds but is now ready to shine! He was rescued by our Humane Investigations Department from a less than ideal living situation. He was extremely fearful and remained unable to be touched for months. He was shy and scared, which makes sense considering where he came from! Solar has made a lot of progress and is now a happy and friendly cat who enjoys the company of others cats.

Upon admit, we discovered that Solar is FIV+, which means he has Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. But cats that test positive for FIV are completely capable of living normal, healthy lives as long as they are taken to the vet regularly! They are more susceptible to kitty colds and other minor sicknesses so they need to be monitored carefully. FIV can only be transferred from cat to cat; it does not spread between species.

Because of this, Solar needs to go home with a family that either does not have another cats or that he go home with another FIV+ buddy! Solar is a sweet boy who has been at the shelter way too long and really deserves the comforts of a loving home. He is a sun bather and a lounger at heart.
