Meet Scooter

Hey, I’m Scooter, a charming boy with a heart as sweet as my name implies.

My most striking feature? Well, that would undoubtedly be my mesmerizing eyes, ready to capture your heart.

I’m not shy about my love for food – it’s a passion of mine! As much as I adore affection, I believe I’d thrive best in a home where I can be the center of attention as the only cat.

I’m patiently waiting to find my forever home, where I can share all this love and charm with my perfect human companion.

Scooter'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
