My story

Boo is an incredibly affectionate cat. He would make someone a tremendous companion. He just wants to be with you, and sit on your lap.

Boo spent early months of his life as a stray, most likely abandoned. Unfortunately he was infected with FIV. Boo is a lover not a fighter, but that could not be said of every cat in his original neighborhood. Further, he was injured badly and had a rough go of it for a number of months.

He is on prednisone and most likely will need to remain on this support for the rest of his life -- at least that is the outlook for now. His specials needs, therefore, are that he is FIV positive and must be maintained on prednisone. The prednisone stimulates his appetite, which is why he is a bit on the heavy side.

Boo would very much like to find a home where he could be fully integrated in the household. So he is looking for that special person who can accommodate his needs. He is worth every bit of this needed consideration.

Due to his medical condition, the veterinarians have been cautious about vaccines.
