I’m a cat who will swing his way right into your heart, and I am not monkeying around! I was found as a friendly stray cat, and with no owner to come forward, came to the MCSPCA to find my new home.
I’m a very sweet 4-years-young boy who just wants someone to love and be loved by. I love being petted and nuzzling back against you, and I might even hop in your lap at one point too! A place where I’ll have lots of company, play, and nice places to nap and look out the window will make my dreams come true.
I don’t know how I feel about other cats yet, but I can try getting to know some friendly ones of yours, or enjoy all the space of your home by myself. Come meet me and you’ll go positively bananas!
Purrangatang is FIV+. FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) means that when exposed to kitty germs, an FIV+ cat is more susceptible to catching something than a cat without. With limited resources to care for so many animals (sick or otherwise), many shelters have no choice but to euthanize those likeliest to get sick, and FIV+ cats are always at the top of the list. Luckily for me, the MCSPCA adopts out lots of FIV+ kitties!
Studies show FIV+ kitties can live just as happy, healthy and long of a life as those without. A positive FIV status becomes a problem with outdoor cats that must fend for themselves and fight over limited resources. With an indoor home, good food, lots of love, and regular vet visits, their lifespan and quality of life can equal a cat without FIV.
