Meet Hendrix

🎵 Hey there, I’m Hendrix – just like the legendary guitarist, I’ve got a quiet spirit that’s waiting to bloom with the right touch of love and care! 🎵

“I’m a little bit shy, but I’m brave enough to fly…” Those might not be the exact lyrics, but they resonate with me. I might be a bit reserved right now, but deep down, I’ve got a heart that’s ready to take flight and embrace the world.

“Excuse me while I kiss the sky…” Well, I might not be kissing the sky just yet, but I’m on a journey, and I’d love for you to be a part of it. With a patient touch and some extra TLC, I’m hoping to find my wings and build the trust to truly shine.

“I’m gonna let my soul shine…” Just like the lyrics from a song, I want to let my true self shine – my sweet, gentle, and potentially outgoing side. With time and understanding, I know I can overcome my shyness and be the companion you’ve been waiting for.

So, if you’re ready to be the patient and caring hand that guides me toward embracing the world, adopt Hendrix. Let’s create a harmonious journey of trust, love, and growth together. 🎶🐾

Hendrix'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. Read more about FIV at
