Gentle, shy, and loving – three of the first words that come to mind when describing this very special guy. Seph is a darling boy in search of a furever home. Because he was a stray, we don’t know much about his history; however, it’s evident that he has walked a rough road up to this point. He is on the shy side which makes us think that he was probably on his own for some time. Timid as he is, sweet Seph loves nothing more than a nice, quiet snuggle. He falls in loves with his new friends immediately, and it’s easy to see that he knows his human friends care about his well-being.
Sadly, Seph tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), a disease in cats commonly transmitted through bites, similar to human HIV. There is no cure for FIV, but many cats with FIV achieve normal lifespans and do not require any daily medications. Because FIV can be transmitted between cats, FIV positive cats must be kept indoors, and there are special precautions for sharing a home with other cats. Cats should be introduced gradually and monitored closely for signs of aggression and fighting. Cats should not be alone without supervision until it has been confirmed that they get along. If any fighting occurs, the cats should be separated.
Seph deserves another chance in a quiet home where he can settle in and relax his weary bones. He’s a real heart-throb and cute as a bug’s ear. You’ll want to come meet this lovely little man!
