[Background] TNR rescue [Character]Walter is a laid-back, at your own pace old guy. He may not have heart-throb looks but he has a heart of gold. All he asks for is yummy food, a comfortable and warm place to sleep and a window to soak up the sun and watch the world go by. In return, he will show you all the gratitude he has for your kindness. Walter may have had a hard many years as an outside cat, but he is friendly and very trusting of people. Walter is FIV (+) and is rough around the edges and will require on-going monitoring for health issues. We want to see Walter live out his years in a home, so we will waive adoption fees and support an adopter where possible.
*The FIV virus weakens the immune system so they need monitoring for infections and dental issues, but if they are well-cared for they can live long and normal lives. FIV cannot be spread to humans, dogs or other animals. FIV+ cats can live with FIV- cats if there is no risk of fighting and if cats are spay and neutered. It is advised to separate any new introductions until you are sure they will not fight to minimize risks.
