FACES OF RESCUE 100 CATS: Jasper 8/100

"Jasper" - 8x8 Oil on Canvas

****This cute boy is looking for his forever home though Alley Cats an Angels ****
My name is Jasper and aside from being handsome, let me tell you a little more about myself:
I’m an adult male, approximately 2-3 years old. I’m a handsome Flame Point Siamese Mix with big beautiful blue eyes. I’m laid back fellow with a very loving personality. I love affection – I love to give it and most definitely love receiving it. I love to cuddle and it would be so great to be able to cuddle with a new human friend. I’ve also been told that I’m like a big teddy bear (my nickname is “bear cat”). As you can see, I would be the perfect friend/pet for any human family or single person.
I am FIV positive. FIV is a cat-only disease and cannot be spread to humans or any other species. FIV is a slow virus that affects a cat’s immune system over a period of years. Many FIV+ cats can live long, healthy and relatively normal lives with no symptoms at all. FIV is not easily passed between cats; it cannot be spread casually in litter boxes, water/ food bowls, or when snuggling and playing. The virus is spread through blood transfusions or penetrating bite wounds, however, bite wounds of this kind are extremely rare except in free-roaming, unneutered tomcats.
A neutered cat is extremely unlikely to infect other cats. FIV+ cats need annual or twice yearly vet checks and if they become ill, it is important to get treatment quickly. Vaccinations for FIV+ cats always need to be up-to-date and be treated for fleas and de-wormed on a regular basis. Actually, this is true for all cats. Jasper was pulled from a high kill shelter where he stood little chance of being adopted.
Alley Cats and Angels will be happy to answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding adopting an FIV positive cat
