Big Wallace

Big Wallace is a regal 10-year-old cat who came to us as a stray. He is a chatty guy who will bring a smile to your face with his sweet soundings. He also loves belly rubs! Big Wallace is looking for someone he can curl up in bed with and wake up with sweet kitty kisses. He is considered special needs because he is FIV positive. FIV is a chronic condition that depresses the immune system.  Big Wallace can live a long, happy life, but he should be monitored to avoid getting infections. He can live with other cats that don’t have FIV. It is transmissible but only through a deep bite–and Big Wallace is not the biting kind. It is safe for him to share water bowls or to lick another cat.
