Tiger is a lovable big lug of a cat! He is very friendly and affectionate and loooooved getting attention from people at his first adoption event.
In 2004, which is quite a while ago, Tiger was exposed to the FIP virus. He does not have FIP, but because he was exposed, he may pose a risk to other kitties if he shares a litter box with them. Cats that have been exposed to FIP will usually get the illness soon after exposure, otherwise they can live a very healthy, long life like any other healthy cat. Because of Tiger's exposure, it will be best for him to be adopted into a home without other cats or with other cats that were also exposed to FIP. Tiger's foster mom thinks he'll do well with dogs too (dogs do not get FIP) and since he's a very social guy, he'd most likely love to have another four legged friend to hang out with.
Please call 704-732-9022 or email UniversityFosters@gmail.com if you need more information or are interested in adopting Tiger. He really is a deserving guy and after so many years since his exposure, it appears unlikely that he'll actually contract the disease, so we think he has a normal life span ahead of him.
