Facts about Mars

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Mars happened to show up as a stray on the property of a Stray Cat Blues volunteer, so it was not too long before he was caught and taken to the vet for altering. Unfortunately, he tested positive for FIV. Otherwise, he has thrived after rescue and has become a big gentle boy. Mars is neutered, up-to-date with his vaccinations and has been microchipped. He is approximately 3 years old. He loves other cats and would also love a home of his own.
FIV stands for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. FIV can suppress the immune system but most cats live very long and healthy lives with FIV. Our volunteers would be happy to discuss this condition with you. FIV is primarily spread through deep bite wounds. FIV is not spread by sharing litter boxes or food bowls. It is also not spread by cats cuddling or playing with each other (so FIV cats can in many cases live in homes with non-FIV cats). FIV cannot be spread to people or to non-cat pets such as dogs. FIV+ cats are sweet, funny, affectionate, and playful, just as any other cat!
