In shelter Cat

Nashville, TN, 37216
Pet name:
Tabby (Brown / Chocolate)
Coat length:
Swirley is one cool cat.  Hes a 3-4 yr old playful male tabby with a beautiful swirly tabby coat.  Swirly has a big, outgoing personality and loves running and playing hard with the other kitties in the house.  When playtime is over though, Swirly is a cuddle buddy!   He will fit in well with a family with other cats.

Swirly loves his people, which you can tell by his nickname "Velcro".  When hes done playing, hes looking for affection, a lap to take a nap in, or a spot on your work-from-home desk.  

Swirley is a neutered, UTD on vaccines. He has tested negative for FeLV, but is positive for FIV.

FIV is a slow-progressing virus that can compromise a cat’s
immune system, reducing its ability to fight off illnesses. The virus has a
long latent period then progresses so slowly that it may never affect a cat.
That’s why long-term studies show that FIV cats can live long and healthy lives, and ultimately die of the same causes as Non-FIV cats. FIV cats can live
with Non-FIV cats without spreading the virus. FIV can only be transmitted by deep intramuscular bite wounds. The virus cannot live long outside the body and is killed by air, light, heat and regular household disinfectants.

FIV cats have the same needs as Non-FIV cats- live only with other non-
aggressive cats, kept as healthy as possible, stress levels kept down, a quality diet (the best you can afford), regular vet exams, treat any health problems when they arise. And LOVE.
