Adoption fee: priceless
Riggs is a handsome 6-year-old kitty who cannot wait to find his own special home. Riggs has tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), and he will need a family that is committed to helping him stay as healthy as possible.
What Riggs will need from his new family: preventative care is especially important for cats with FIV. This would include regular veterinary visits, good dental care, and a non-raw food diet. FIV causes cats to be less able to fight off infection, but with good care many FIV+ cats can live their normal lifespan. Because FIV can be transmitted to other cats, Riggs should only live indoors as a single cat or with other FIV+ cats.
We sincerely appreciate adopters that are willing to provide special homes for kitties like Riggs and we gladly waive the adoption fee.
