This is Jack!

Named after the legendary pirate, Captain Jack Sparrow, this handsome boy is approximately 2 years old. He has been neutered, vaccinated, and tested positive for FIV. Jack was brought to us after he was discovered as a stray. The citizen who brought him in was kind enough to get Jack medical attention, but was unable to keep him due to concern that he would harass their birds.

Feline immunodeficiency virus, also known as FIV, is very similar to AIDS in humans and is sometimes referred to as feline AIDS. FIV just means that Jack 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 bites or when a mother gives birth to kittens. Cats with FIV often live long, happy, and fulfilling lives.
