Hi, I.m Slim. I arrived at SBACC dirty and scared and full of fleas. Turns out I was anemic and had a blood infection. The people at SBACC worked hard to get me back into shape. I have not been all that cooperative but I am finally coming around and realizing that everyone just wants to help me and be my friend. I am also FIV+ probably due to my tomcat past on the streets of Seal Beach. Don’t worry, it is strictly a feline condition and despite what many people think, cats with FIV can live long, healthy lives.Go ahead and ask my friends at SBACC about this condition or check out the following link for more information. http://www.bestfriends.org/Resources/Pet-Care/Cats/Health-And-Care/FAQs-About-FIV/ I have finally moved out of sick-bay into a common room at SBACC. I have been hanging out in a carrier that is in a cage while I get used to my new surroundings. I am still trying to get my nerve up to come out and socialize with the other cats and the volunteers. One of these days I will hopefully be ready for a forever home.
