SAFE 6/8/17 FIV POSITIVE – Meet Timmy: This little guy may be a little shy, but he is still very young and with the right amount of love and care he can grow to be a great cat. He did test positive for FIV and would likely need some extra medical care, but with the right amount of TLC he can still live a great, fulfilling life.
