Meet Boris

If you like older guys and If you are lookin for love, look no further. Boris is your guy. Boris came to us from a kill shelter. In his pictures at the shelter he looked awful. Coat was dull. He had no fur behind his ears because he scratched them constantly because he had hear mites. He was fixed, had a dental and has been on high protein food and he looks soooooo much better.

This boy is the biggest love bug. It is hard to believe he lived outside. Loves to be in laps. Will let you hold him like a baby. He gives kisses and head nudges. He just wants to be loved and have a human of his own. He loves to play with toys and will do so sometimes all by himself.

In checking him over on intake it was discovered that Boris has a heart murmur. He has had 2 heart ultrasounds and is on 2 medications. His medications are not expensive and he is super easy to pill

Boris was definitely an outside tom cat. He fought a few fights over females in heat. Because of those fights and being un-neutered he tested positive for FIV, which means he carries the virus. But guess what? FIV IS NO BIG DEAL! FIV positive cats can live as long as negative cats and may never have any health issues. All we need is good food, regular vet visits, a clean environment, and lots of love! FIV positive cats can also live with negative cats as long as the household is stable and everyone gets along, which is definitely the case with me - I live with my FIV negative friends and we get along great! FIV is spread to other cats through deep, vicious bite wounds that are uncommon outside of intact tomcats (and I'm neutered!) Besides, I'm a lover, not a fighter!
