Hello: My name is Binx.
I look like a magnificent specimen of a mini black leopard cat, kinda' big, kinda' gorgeous! I weigh in at over 13 pounds - not fat, just big-boned! I'm solid black, with white whiskers and I've got a laid-back, easy-going kind of personality. I'm already neutered and micro-chipped, and I've recently had my vaccinations updated.
I was rescued from a nasty hoarding situation so we don't know very much about my background, except that I will probably get along just fine with other cats. We think I’m 8-10 years old and thankfully, I’m in surprisingly good health. I'm playful - I like to attack my foster Mom’s feet when she moves them under the covers while she is in bed watching T.V! And when anyone pets me, I purr and make biscuits - I’m a real love bug! I have a favorite toy. It is a red stuffed catnip valentine’s heart that says, “Bite me, lick me, rabbit kick”. I really love the great outdoors, so would prefer a home where I could at least visit outside sometimes.
My foster Mom has started back to school so she doesn't have time to take care of me. I need a new home fast - won't you please save me from being homeless? Please call my foster mom and let her know if you can become my new Mommy or Daddy. My foster mommy's number is 489-1031 please call her soon!
PS - I have to tell you that I tested positive for FIV. (Feline Immuno-deficiency Virus) Everybody used to be really scared of that, but not anymore - so don't let it scare you away! Here's why:
Cats with this condition can live perfectly long, happy, healthy lives:
