I had a family once, but I got lost. I was alone and scared in a bad neighborhood. My name is Whitey, and I was a lonely street cat with nobody to help me.
Then one day a group of feral cats invited me to eat with them. We have a "caretaker," they told me. "She's a really cool human." That was in 2014. The woman trapped me and took me for something called a "neuter." Then she said, "You are not feral! You need an indoor home!" I have been waiting for a home since 2014.
I am around four years old, and my passion is humans! I love humans! I also get along well with dogs and other cats. My foster mama says I am an "absolute sweetheart." I always paw you humans to make sure you notice me, and I love to sleep in bed.
I test positive for FIV, but I am very healthy. Many people do not realize that cats who test positive for FIV can lead a healthy life of normal duration. I can even live with negative cats as long as they are as good with other cats as I am. That is because FIV is only transmitted through the blood-- by deep bites, for example.
Occasionally I like to give humans a tiny love nip, but I never break the skin. It's my way of saying, "Look! Here I am, ready for loving!"
I love my foster mama, but more than anything I'd love my own permanent home with my very own human, someone who would let me cuddle at night. Someone who I could love for the rest of my life! Could that be you?
