We don't know where this big black panther named Cliff originally came from, but he was lucky enough to end up in the Philadelphia yard of a cat-friendly person that took pity on him and 2 other cats by supplying food and shelter. When his rescuer took Cliff to the vet for a check-up and neutering, it was discovered that Cliff is FIV+. He's such a sweet, lovable guy that we just know he has a home out there waiting for him. He seems to get along well with other cats (with proper introductions) and is very content living inside. He is also great with the litterbox!
FIV is a cat-only virus that can only infect cats, and is not even easily passed between cats. FIV can only be passed from Cat to Cat through deep puncture wounds normally seen during fighting behaviors in unaltered male cats. Although some FIV+ cats are more likely to contract colds and other infections, many FIV+ Cats live perfectly normal lives with average lifespans- they just need a good home with the same proper vet care all cats need.
Cliff is a big, beautiful black boy estimated to be between 6-8 years old. He's sweet and low key. Cliff would be a great only-cat, or a buddy to another FIV+ cat or a dog. He will make a wonderful pet.
Neutered, FeLV tested /Neg, vaccinated, dewormed, flea treated and ready for a home!
Adopting from The Cat Shack The Cat Shack rescue is all volunteer and the adopted cats are delivered to your home.
