CASPIAN – A1101996
Safe - 1-30-2017 Manhattan
***SAFE 01/30/17*** BEGINNER RATED CASPIAN is FIV POSITIVE. A volunteer writes: Do you believe in love at first sight? Well, I do now. Caspian is a young, mega-friendly, cutie pie. He is a real clown for affection, rolling over on his head and kneading the blanket. This purr nugget will win your heart at first meeting. He has tested positive for FIV, which is an immune disorder in cats. This means he is best to be the only cat in the home or be paired with a fellow FIV+ cat. He should not be allowed outside (best to keep any cat inside). If you are looking for a playful cuddler, you will be very lucky to adopt Caspian. Perfect companion.
