This handsome boy spent all of last year outdoors trying to fend for himself. He is a “many mix breed cat” and about 3 years old. Michael is black in color and a bigger boy weighing about 15 pounds. Michael tested negative for leukemia but positive for FIV.
FIV is a cat specific virus. You cannot catch FIV. It is primarily spread via a deep bite wound to another cat. Michael came to my rescue with an injured leg. It appeared to be from a bite wound that was left untreated and caused an infection in his ankle bone. I gave him antibiotics for a month and he got the okay from the doctor that he is now ready to find his forever home.
Michael is currently residing in my cat building and is fine with the other cats. He is laid back and just truly happy to be indoors where he is safe, warm and loved. Michael is now neutered and vaccinated. To meet Michael, please contact Kathy Deptola Animal Rescue 440 862 0610 firstname.lastname@example.org.
