UPDATE 9/8/16: Waldo went into foster care! His foster mom says:
'He eats well, takes his pills with no trouble, getting more exercise, and is super sweet. I love having him here!'
If you are interested in adopting this kitty, please email the foster parent at email@example.com
Nice to meet you, I'm Waldo! I am POSITIVELY sweet and affectionate as I am FIV+. I'm an affectionate boy who likes to be petted and brush around your legs, but I just don't like being picked up much. I have so much love to give, you will know only when you take me home. I can live with other cats if they like to just coexist - I'm not much for playing with other kitties, though I enjoy playtime with my people!
I have hyperthyroidism so I take medicine twice a day to control it. I eat it up in my food so there's no hassle to medicate me! I just need someone who can keep up with my vet visits to re-check my bloodwork regularly (which can be done affordably at the PAWS clinic).
FIV is a lifelong condition, but it won't stop me from having a long and happy life. I can live with other cats and do everything other cats do! Learn more about FIV here: http://bestfriends.org/resources/fiv-cats-faqs

PAWS, the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society, is a 501(c)3 non-profit animal rescue organization. PAWS pulls at-risk animals from the City of Philadelphia's animal control shelter and adopts them out from several locations: our Old City adoption center (2nd and Arch Streets), our Northeast Adoption Center (1810 Grant Avenue); our Wellness Clinic at 2900 Grays Ferry Avenue; our adoption locations at the South Philly and Cottman Avenue PetSmart stores; and, our network of foster homes.
PAWS is dedicated to saving the lives of Philadelphia's homeless, abandoned and unwanted animals and is working to make Philadelphia a city in which every healthy and treatable pet is guaranteed a home.
When you adopt a pet from PAWS you truly save a life!
Please reference this animal's ID NUMBER when inquiring about this pet. Both PAWS Adoption Centers are open Monday-Friday from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m., Saturday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. PAWS' Wellness Clinic is open Monday - Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., but appointments are required for adoptions.
