Simba you sure are hunk of orange burning love! At 7 years strong, Simba has a condition called FIV. FIV is short for feline immunodeficiency virus, which is an infectious retroviral disease in cats. FIV attacks a cats immune system, weakening it over time and leaving them vulnerable to secondary infections. Once a cat is infected with FIV, theyre infected for life. So what does that mean for Simba? That a wonderful home that will provide him with a high quality diet, does not allow him to wander outside and regular vet visits would be the ideal match. Also, FIV+ cats can live with other cats as the transmissible rate is very low and generally happens through deep bite wounds. Simba has lived with other cats in his previous home and likes to be purrince of the household. He is an affectionate lovebug with people, loves to play and will chat with you about his daily escapades! Simba would benefit from a home that will also provide him with exercise and enrichment activities to stimulate his body and his mind! He is a doll and he is ready to choose his purrever home! 

His family to be will also receive some supports/reading material to help with understanding FIV better and we encourage you to discuss this with your purrsonal vet to ensure that he would be a great match for your home.
