Sometimes a stray’s name just sticks, like Scrappy here.

This orange tabby male is friendly as can be, but his coat has a dusty sheen to it so it always looks like he was rolling around in the dirt - even when he’s fresh from a bath!

Scrappy is about 2 years old and LOVES people. What is extra special about him is that he’s FIV positive. There have been a lot of misunderstandings about cats with FIV, but the truth is he can live a long and normal life - just indoors. FIV is only passed on by deep puncture wounds from cat to cat; this only very rarely happens indoors with cats.

Scrappy does not care for dogs very much but may be okay with slow introductions to cat-savvy dogs. Likewise, he could live with other cats but would probably prefer a smaller female. Humans, he has no reserves and loves everyone! He would make a purrfect only fur child for a family looking to adopt.
