Beautiful Billy has been living as a stray and after a year of trying to get him into care, he is finally safe thanks to a neighbour to where he had been visiting.

Due to this life as a stray, Billy has FIV and we are POSITIVE about finding him the right home and looking past the misconceptions about FIV cats.

He is a chunky tabby hunk, who can resist that gorgeous face! He is a chilled out and relaxed boy and was totally fine at the vets when he had his health check – what a star!

We are looking for an indoor home for Billy, but will also consider a home with an enclosed ‘catio’ or cat proofed garden so he is secure in the garden.

FIV cannot be passed to other pets or humans and is only passed from cat to cat by aggressive fighting, usually due to lack of neutering – this is not a ‘death sentence’ for Billy – it just means we are adjusting the kind of home he may go to and there is still the perfect home out there. Most FIV cats live long and healthy lives.

if you’d like to read more about FIV, Cat Chat have very useful information and busts a few ‘myths’ –

We would be happy to have a chat and any questions you may have about FIV cats.

Billy is health checked, neutered/spayed, microchipped, vaccinated and will be all up to date on his flea and worm treatments.

If you’d like adopt Billy, please send a private message to the Purrs Facebook page, call or email and we will be in touch as soon as possible
