1431 - Chicco


Well hi there!! I’m Chicco! I’m super enthusiastic for life! I got given a second chance when my foster dad saved me. I love love LOVE my people, I love your people... In fact I love ALL people. I also love to yell at them enthusiastically and chat away. My perfect day would be getting fed 300 times and having a few cuddles.

I got diagnosed with pesky diseases called Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) but I don’t let that stop me! I’m currently super healthy despite my conditions and am not symptomatic. Because of these I can’t go with other cats unless they have FeLV too as it’s contagious to other kitties by saliva. Good news is other species won’t get it so I could possibly live with dogs (with slow introductions) or even possible some small animals.

Medical Notes: Chicco has Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) which is a virus that can affect his immune system, however, he can still potentially live a long healthy life. FIV is transmitted through deep bite wounds. Chicco also has Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV). FelV is a retrovirus that infects cats. FeLV transmission most commonly occurs through close, social contact. Contact with saliva from infected cats is a primary mode of transmission, because the concentration of virus is high in saliva. FeLV means that the cat’s immune system is compromised and the cat is more susceptible to other infections. Due to his FelV and FIV, Chicco will need to be an inside only cat. He can only go to a home with no other cats, or with a cat that is already FelV positive.
