Dear Crinkle is a Koala Bear in a cat's body! He is the sweetest, most tolerant boy -- never hisses, never swats or scratches people, easy to pick up and cuddle. :o) He's very shy initially, but comes to love people once he knows them. His name comes from the fact that one of his ears is permanently "crinkled" due to infection (now healed) earlier in life.
Despite his FIV+ status, Crinkle is very healthy; most FIV+ cats can live normal, full, healthy lives, especially if they are indoor-only pets. He can also safely live with other FIV- cats without posing a risk to them (FIV is only transmitted through severe bite wounds or in utero from mother cats to unborn kittens). Please help us to demystify the stigma of FIV -- please contact us to learn more about Crinkle!
