Hi… my name is Oddie.

Adopted January 23, 2016

TALGV sure has been getting its share of “needy” cats lately! Their Outreach Program was providing medical assistance for me for quite some time as I had a broken jaw and scabs, rashes, and sores all over my body. To add insult to injury, I tested positive for FIV, but none of that has made a dent in my outgoing nature, sweetness, and love of attention (all that handling during my medical care had a positive effect!). Now my catnaps every day are filled with dreams of a home where I can be the only guy (or one among any number of other FIV positive felines), where my struggles will be but a distant memory and I can greet every day with a rub and purr just for you!

Arrived March , 2015

PS If ANY cat considers you for adoption, you know you’re pretty lucky, but if one of our few FIV cats picks you, you can be sure you’re REALLY special!

NOTE: FIV is a virus that can only be passed among cats (humans or dogs are never affected), and only through blood. Since cats rarely fight to the degree of drawing blood, FIV positive cats can live long and healthy lives with both other FIV positive cats and friendly non-FIV cats. So don’t let those letters scare you — they’re practically like everyone else and they’ll love you even more for choosing them!
