JJ has been living at a local animal hospital, confined to a cage. He is FIV positive, but that simply means he has a lowered immune system. He can only transmit FIV through bite wounds and JJ is very gentle and sweet. It is a recommendation that he go to a home with no other cats, just as a precaution, but personally, I have had many FIV positive cats over the years, and they have been just fine with my other cats and have passed away from another ailment, not the FIV.
JJ is starving for love and attention, as I'm sure he gets lonely, which breaks my heart. He rubs up against the bars of his cage and loves to be combed, because his back end is getting matted, as he's a bit overweight and can't get back there to groom himself. He has a tipped ear because when he was trapped, I'm presuming that he was assumed to be feral and would be re-released. Of course, he's anything but feral!
