We can’t get over how gorgeous this guy is! We think half of our volunteers have already fallen in love with him and they have posted this stud-muffin all over Facebook and Instagram! And not only is he easy on the eyes, he is also a gentle giant with a sweet, calm disposition.
When a small county animal control contacted us, we did not hesitate to take him in. He is FIV+ and this county animal control cannot adopt out positive cats. If a rescue cannot be found, they have to euthanize them. We think this is really sad, because FIV is not a death sentence and they can live long, healthy lives, just like any other cat. So we are so thankful we were able to take Forest and provide him a safe place to live until someone falls in love with him and takes him home.
When Forest first got to Good Mews, we could tell he lived his life outside. He looked a little scrappy, but he was just the sweetest cat. We think he was grateful to finally be safe. He was tired of taking care of himself and was happy to finally have someone take care of him. We just know Forest will make a wonderful companion for the right person. We’re hoping this big guy doesn’t have to wait long to finally have the love he deserves.
Forest is FIV+, but don’t let that scare you! FIV+ cats can live long and healthy lives. They can also live safely with FIV negative cats. FIV is spread through severe bite wounds, so it is important that your kitties get along. To learn more about FIV, please read the articles under the Advice tab.
