Love Your Pet

Name: Monty
Location: Springfield: Dakin Humane Society
Breed: Domestic shorthair cat
Gender: Male
Age: 2 years
Color: Black

Monty came to Dakin last week, and has become a staff favorite already. He’s very friendly and playful, and his former family reports that he is a lap cat who loves all people. Monty is FIV+, which means he has a cats-only, slow-acting virus. Monty lived with teens, older kids, and adults. Come meet Monty at the Springfield Adoption Center.

About FIV: FIV is a cat-only virus and does not affect people or dogs. FIV+ cats most often live long, healthy, and relatively normal lives with no symptoms at all. FIV is not easily passed between cats. If you are looking to add an FIV+ cat to your family and you currently have cats that are not FIV+ please speak with your vet.
