Arnie, who is about 9 or 10, is a very sweet, long-haired black cat. (His photos don't do him justice!) He has tested “positive” for FIV, but is still very adoptable. He is quite handsome and looks and acts like a healthy "normal" cat. He is neutered, has received all the standard vaccinations as well as the vaccination against feline leukemia, and has a lot of love to give to the person -- or people -- who adopt him. After apparently being abandoned, Arnie survived several years in the back yard of a woman who fed him and placed a plastic igloo for him in the winter, but her landlord would not allow Arnie into the house. Even though he is a lot better off than he was for several years after being "dumped," it would be nice if Arnie could spend the rest of his senior years in a loving home. Many FIV-positive cats don’t ever actually come down with FIV, and some of them even live to a ripe old age. As a precaution, however, they should only be placed with other FIV-positive cats or be the solo cat in a home. (FIV – technically known as the "feline immunodeficiency virus" which can cause a weakened immune system in cats – is not contagious to humans or any pets except other cats, and it is only spread among cats via sexual intercourse or deep bite wounds.) Arnie is currently in a boarding facility in Newbury (in Geauga County, OH). Interested potential adopters can call 440.759-0076 or can email email@example.com.
