Jellybean transferred to us from a local veterinarian for a better chance at adoption after being turned into their facility as a stray. He is as sweet as candy -- or jellybeans if that's your candy of choice! He loves to talk and entertain people and will cozy up in your lap if given a chance. Jellybean clearly lived a rough life outside before making his way to us as he is FIV+, has a few scars from past scuffles and is getting over some feline acne on his chin. We know in a nice home with nice accommodations, that he will become even more handsome and healthy than he already is! With all FIV+ cats, we just want you to keep an eye on his teeth and any upper respiratory symptoms. It's best to get him to a vet faster than you might with any other cat if issues arise. Jellybean is ready to find his forever family where he will receive a lot of love and snuggles!
Jellybean is FIV+, but don’t let that scare you! FIV+ cats can live long and healthy lives. They can also live safely with FIV negative cats. FIV is spread through severe bite wounds, so it is important that your kitties get along. To learn more about FIV, please read the articles under the Advice tab.
