Facts about Garfield

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Senior
  • Sex: Male
  • ID#: 217314
  • Hair: Unknown
How I arrived: I was brought in by a Good Samaritan on July 16, 2016.

At SDHS: I am a handsome boy with a great personality! I arrived at SDHS with a facial wound and the medical team has helped me heal and feel better. Due to this, I have spent a lot of time with staff and they have just fallen in love with my sweet nature. I am feeling great now and ready to find my forever home! I have been living with a couple of other FIV+ cats and we have been doing well together. I may be able to go home with another FIV+ cat, if my new family already has one or are interested in adopting another.

Why I am the one for you: My Personality Color Code is Purple; meaning I'm Happy - Go - Lucky...Carefree...Engaging...Adaptive...and Cheerful!

This cat has tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). FIV causes cats to be less able to fight off infection, but with good care many FIV+ cats can live their normal lifespanss. Preventive care is especially important: regular veterinary visits, good dental care, and a non raw food diet. FIV can only be transmitted to other cats and therefore they should only live indoors and with other FIV+ cats or be a single cat. We sincerely appreciate adopters that are willing to provide special homes for FIV cats and we gladly waive the adoption fee.

Primary Color: Red Tabby
Weight: 14.2
Age: 8yrs 3mths 0wks
