About me
Hi there. I like to take things pretty slow - I'm in no great hurry to get anywhere - except perhaps your lap for some love and affection. If you want a relaxed companion, someone to kick back and cuddle with after a hard day's work, I'm the cat for you.

Yes, I've got my fair share of health waivers, but the amount of adoration I would in return have for you for caring for me could easily help them to be overlooked. Eye is just corneal scarring.
The mains being:
* FIV+ (but I don't let that keep be down)
FIV positive cats frequently appear healthy for many years, and may even live a full life span. Because FIV affects the immune systems in cats, they can be more vulnerable to other infections that may cause severe illness due to a weakened immune system. It is therefore recommended to keep cats with FIV indoors to minimize exposure to outdoor cats, and or infections/diseases/parasites.
If you have other cats in your home FIV can be transmitted only if there is fighting with deep biting, or mating behaviors shared with a positive cat.
Cats that peacefully co-exist without any biting or mating are at no risk of becoming infected with FIV.

* Plasma Cell Pododermatitis
This cat has been diagnosed with a condition caused plasma cell pododermatitis - a foot pad disease found mostly in cats. This is an immune-mediated condition and the cause is unknown. We have tested this cat for the feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) which may have a link to this disease, and he has tested Positive. He is currently receiving an antibiotic called Doxycyline - and he may need to receive this antibiotic for up to 10 weeks (we will provide you with enough to help in the beginning.)
This condition may go into remission; however, this condition will require lifelong management and monitoring.

It will be my adoptive family's responsibility to seek veterinary care for these conditions (mainly for annual updates/rechecks) and develop an ongoing plan that seems fit for me.

Looking for someone to share your space with? Look no further! Instead come meet me, 2pm - 5pm at the Milpitas ACC.
