RJ is a beautiful little boy ready to steal your heart. He is VERY playful and full of energy. Thinks he is one of the dogs at times- sniffs strangers, hollers at the front door when the dogs go outside, eats table scraps when the dogs get a human treat, and even begs at times. Loves to climb and is very curious about EVERYTHING!
RJ has been with us since his was a baby, both he and his mother were found in drywall at a construction site. He is wide-open all the time! He is full of spunk and has a fantastic personality. RJ could make a sour, grumpy, miserable person laugh!
RJ is a little bit rotten - as the only kitten found with his mom, he has gotten lots of attention from his foster family! He is fine with dogs and children.
RJ is FIV+ - he received the virus in utero from his mom, Ripley. Please do not let that deter you from this cutie. RJ is perfectly healthy, playful and happy kitten! FIV+ cats can live long, happy lives as inside only cats, just like any other cat. It is perfectly safe for FIV+ cats to live in homes with altered negative cats. FIV is transmitted to other felines by deep puncture wounds (such as a "Tom cat" fight).
