Meet Ben Franklin

Sweet Ben Franklin is an amazing boy just over 3 years old who is sure to steal your heart! This handsome fella loves cuddles, face rubs, and being with his favorite person every chance he gets. He is an excellent meeting supervisor and as you can imagine, his cuteness overload keeps motivation high so you can keep buying his favorite wand toys and anything that has catnip!

Ben Franklin is social and enjoys being your center of attention. He is a sensitive boy who loves all the pets. He is energetic and playful, but can get nervous with loud noises and fast movements. He is just looking for the calm and laid back life that he can spend with his favorite person! Ben Franklin is FIV+, but that doesn't stop him from living his best, lovable and healthy life! He gets along with other kitties, but would do best in a home without any dogs. If you're looking for the purrfect companion, Ben Franklin is your boy! Applications are now being accepted, available below!


All over the country cats with FIV are often euthanized or considered not adoptable even though most FIV+ cats go on to live normal, healthy lives. TLCR believes that education is key to helping FIV+ cats find the loving adoptive homes that they deserve. Please read below and do not hesitate to reach out with any questions! e:

-FIV is transmitted through deep bite wounds typically seen in male cats who are not neutered, living outside, and fighting over territory or resources.

-FIV does NOT spread through grooming, playing, sharing bowls, or litter boxes.

-Science proves that FIV+ cats live just as long as their negative counterparts with proper care.

-FIV is NOT the same as feline leukemia or human HIV.

-Humans or dogs can NOT contract FIV.

-Cats who test positive for FIV need the same basic care as cats who test negative. Yearly check-ups at the vet, to live indoors, and be fed good quality food.

-FIV+ cats shouldn't live with cats who are known carriers of feline herpes virus as they are more susceptible to infections.
