(Adult) Brando

Hi! My Name Is (Adult) Brando

I'm Available

We just welcomed an affectionate adult tuxedo cat to WCAL and we're excited to be able to give him the opportunity he needs to find a great home. Brando is comfortable, confident and happy to roll onto his back and let you scratch his tummy! His scratchy meow is really endearing and he has a big purr. This friendly fellow was identified as "adoption challenged" by our shelter because of the results of his routine blood test (that's it!); he tested positive for both FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) and FeLV (Feline Leukemia). Luckily he is not showing any symptoms whatsoever and he appears to be a happy-go-lucky guy with a bright future. Our vet ran a full blood panel that revealed Brando is "healthy as a horse" and said there is no reason to believe he won't go on to live a healthy 6-8 years or more! Excellent litter box habits and super friendly demeanor, Brando's a real winner.

We know that cats with FIV can live a long, happy life. It's quite rare for us to see a cat of his age with FeLV since it tends to primarily impact kittens and in most cases, they don't live more than 2-3 years because kittens are simply not grown enough to mount a successful immune response. What we do know for sure is that there is 100% someone out there who'd be lucky to adopt him and spoil him rotten, just like he deserves. We are looking for a watchful family who can keep this loving cat indoors only to minimize his chances of injury or infection and to prevent the spread of FeLV to unvaccinated cats. Neither FIV or FeLV can be transmitted to humans or dogs. We sometimes place FIV-positive cats in homes with other cats because it is very difficult to spread among friendly, altered pet cats. While there is a vaccine to protect cats against FeLV, it is only 98% effective so the safest thing would be for this kitty to be your one and only cat (FeLV can be spread through saliva and most friendly house cats like to give one another baths!).
