Hello, my name is Pumpkin. I am a older gentleman who is on the shy side. I get nervous when meeting new people, and have not quite adjusted to shelter life. In my previous home I was a mostly outdoor kitty, I only came inside to eat. However, upon my arrival at the shelter the staff has found that I am FIV+. This changes a lot of things for  me and I may have to adjust my lifestyle. Since I am FIV+ I should only be placed in a home with other FIV+ cats, I also will no longer be able to roam free in the great outdoors. I would love a catio or enclosure where I can still get a taste of freedom. I am a very gentle guy, and once you get to know me and I get used to my surrounding I will become much more confident. If you think you might be able to give me a great retirement home, stop by the shelter and visit with me. Although FIV+ sounds scary I can live a normal. healthy cat life with proper care.
