Meet Mickey

Hello everyone! I’m Mickey, a large and affectionate feline overflowing with sweetness and love.

I possess a distinctive talent for crafting biscuits, especially when cozied up with you. While human affection is my favorite, I’m also open to engaging in playful adventures with fellow cats. I am undeniably a certified snuggle bug.

Currently, I am on a quest to find my forever home, aspiring to bring joy, warmth, and an abundance of purrs to a fortunate family. Could you be the fur-ever home I’ve been patiently awaiting?

Mickey'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 https://www.fivcats.com/FIV/fiv_common_myths.html
