Atticus

Are you a Siamese lover? Then Atticus is your guy! Atticus was rescued off the streets as a stray cat. He is way too sweet and comfortable around humans to be feral so we think he must have had a home at one point in his early life. He was a little beat up but after getting his head abscess treated, clearing up eye and ear infections and undergoing entropic eye surgery he’s ready for his forever home. He is incredibly sweet and will allow you to carry him around, rub his belly and paws and hand feed him treats. He loves to sleep in bed with you at night or cuddle with you on the couch. He can’t get enough head rubs and brushing. He is incredible smart too! He can open doors and zip up pet carriers and is a master of mischief.

Atticus would be best in a home familiar with the Siamese breed personalty. Siamese are incredibly intelligent cats who bond strongly to people and can be quite demanding, mischievous and vocal. They are not your chill run of the mill cat. Atticus is currently cohabitating with my 4 resident male cats. He would do fine in a home with another calm non aggressive cat or as a single because has a HUGE personalty and loves personal attention. He loves playing with wand toys and playing tag with my 2 and 3 year old resident cats. He is still quite young, playful and full of energy! He does fine around children 8+ and loves hanging out and sleeping with my 9 year old son.

 

Atticus tested positive for FIV. FIV cats can live peacefully with non FIV cats as long as all cats are fixed and non aggressive. I currently have 3 negative and 1 positive living together in harmony plus Atticus.

 

What is feline FIV? FIV is a type of virus called a retrovirus. It is a slow virus that attacks the immune system over a period of years, making the cat more susceptible to secondary infections and cancers.

 

There is no cure for the virus itself, but it is NOT a death sentence. Most FIV positive cats can live long and happy lives just like non FIV cats Some even live their entire lives without ever coming down with the actual illness

 

Although it is NOT transmittable to humans, dogs or other non-feline pets, the virus can ONLY be transmitted between cats  through deep bite wounds with direct blood to blood contact. Cats most at risk for infection are intact, outdoors cats and those allowed outside who fight with other cats. This how many male outdoor cats become infected. Most importantly when adopting a FIV positive cat, you must always keep that cat indoors.
