Scampi was found outside and a nice person took care of him until there was space at the shelter. He was quickly adopted and sadly had to be returned when the owner could no longer provide care for him. Scampi is a silly guy and is still trying to learn that being inside is a good thing. Sometimes he tries to run outside so he needs a household that will make sure he doesn't try any escape artist tricks. He loves children, dogs, and other kitties so should do well in most homes. He will growl at kitties that are really dominant or bullies, so it's best he live with calm and friendly cats. His tail is a little kinked from a previous break when living outside, but it doesn't bother him now. These sweet and affectionate boy can't wait to have a lap to curl up in forever!
Scampi 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.
