Elton is 2 to 3 years old and loves a good scratch behind the ears. He is neutered, up to date on shots and litter trained.
Elton is having a hard time finding a new home because of an extra-special quality: Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV).
This is not a death sentence. Elton can live a relatively normal -- and long -- life. And he can only transmit the disease to other cats (biting or scratching). FIV cannot be transmitted to humans or dogs.
For more information about FIV, visit www.petmd.com.
Please consider opening your home to Elton!
