Barney is a big,very handsome, 5 year old Medium to Long Haired White with Brown tabby markings neutered male. He is friendly very sweet and loves pets and attention. He can also be very relaxed and laid back. He was rescued from being put down at another shelter, so we don't have much background on him. He gets along great with his docile FIV+ roommates, esp. Fred who he came to us with, 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. We don't know about dogs, but he is so calm and sweet, he might be O.K. with calm, cat-friendly dogs. He should also be O.K. with cat-friendly children. Come meet this sweet & handsome boy.
