Fred is a very handsome 5 year old American Short Haired red (dark orange) tabby neutered male. He is very sweet and loves pets and attention and will ask for attention. He was rescued after being abandoned at a Vet's Office where he lived in a kennel for quite some time. He gets along well with his docile FIV+ roommates, esp. his buddy Barney, but they are not bonded. He is FIV+ which is the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. It is only contagious to other cats. It means his immune system is a little weaker than average, but most cats with FIV live long healthy lives if they are in a safe, indoor only, calm environment . They have been adopted with other FIV+ cats and many people have adopted FIV+ cats who have non-FIV cats without their non-FIV cats contracting it. Please discuss with your Veterinarian to help you decide. There is a vaccination for FIV that you can discuss with you Veterinarian as well. He does not like dogs at all and should not be around them. He should also be O.K. with cat-friendly children. Come meet this sweet & handsome boy.
