This is Duncan!
Duncan is approximately 2 to 3 years old. He is a wonderful lilac point with bright blue eyes. He was brought to the shelter after a concerned citizen had contacted the authorities. He was found in rough shape. He had a fairly large patch of blood on his forehead. His wound has since healed and his hair has begun to grow back.
Duncan is quite the character. He’s very sweet, loving, and he loves to roll around when you give him attention. Now that he’s feeling better, he is finally coming out of his shell a little bit more. He has the cutest up turned eyes that make him look sad all the time. It can be quite comical, but we promise he’s actually a happy boy!
At some point in Duncan’s life, he was exposed to FIV, or Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. It is similar to AIDS in humans. FIV just means that Duncan has a weakened immune system and is more vulnerable to illnesses than other cats. FIV is NOT contagious to humans in any way, but can be contagious to other cats. However, FIV does not typically spread through everyday interactions like eating/drinking from the same bowl or social grooming. FIV is usually only spread through fighting, mating, or when a mother gives birth to kittens. Cats with FIV often live long, happy, and fulfilling lives.
A majority of Duncan’s life was spent living outdoors and he has struggled a little bit to adjust to living indoors. He tends to be pretty picky about the type of litter he likes. He seemingly prefers litter with softer granules. After some trial and error with his preferences, he has learned how to be a good member of society.
