Ollie is new to us here after finding himself in a great deal of pain with an abscessed ear.
He was found as an injured stray and has been under vet care healing the large open wound on his ear. Due to the nature of his injury being from a cat fight, we tested him for FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus) and he is positive.
This means Ollie shouldn’t be housed with healthy cats due to the risk of transmission, and should be considered an indoor-only cat unless with controlled access (catio, etc).
He may be okay with another FIV+ cat, as he was introduced to the finder’s cat with no issue.
He is a petite boy who can be very vocal and likes to tell you how he’s feeling. Ollie loves food, cozy beds, cuddles, being brushed and totally pampered.
