Meet Allister

I’m Allister, a gentle giant with a heart as vast as the oceans and a frame as cozy as a mountain of blankets. At first glance, you might mistake me for being reserved, but beneath my initial shyness lies a treasure trove of warmth and affection just waiting to be unleashed.

There’s nothing I adore more than the tender touch of my favorite humans, whose cuddles and pets bring me immense joy and comfort. Once you coax me out of my shell, I’ll eagerly snuggle up beside you, reveling in the warmth of our bond. And let’s not forget about my penchant for snug, little nooks – there’s something about cozy spaces that makes my heart sing with contentment.

But it’s my expressive eyes that truly steal the show, captivating anyone who dares to meet my gaze. With just one look, I can melt even the coldest of hearts, effortlessly conveying my longing for love and companionship.

As I patiently await my forever home, I dream of a family who will embrace me with open arms and shower me with the affection I so eagerly crave. Together, we’ll create a haven of love and warmth, where each day is filled with precious moments of togetherness. Are you ready to welcome me into your heart and home, where I can finally bask in the boundless love of my new family?

Allister's Medical Information

I have FIV, that's what I have but it is NOT who I AM! Please don't let that scare you away. I want you to know that FIV+ cats can and DO live long, healthy, and normal lives when given the chance. In fact, statistically, most FIV cats live as long as their indoor counterparts (13-18 years), and much longer than cats that live outdoors (3-8 years). There are many reported cases where FIV+ cats live well into old age without ever showing any symptoms. It's important to note that dogs, other pets, and humans are absolutely immune to FIV. The virus itself is astonishingly frail and can live outside of the body for only a few seconds. The virus is also extremely slow-acting, so it is unlikely to pose any threat to other cats in the household. I know that adopting an FIV+ cat may seem like a big responsibility, but I promise that I am worth it. I am a sweet and loving kitty who just wants a warm and safe place to call home. If you are willing to give me a chance, I promise to bring you years of joy and companionship. So please come and meet me, and see for yourself that FIV+ cats are just as wonderful and deserving of love as any other cat.
