Morris: Save the Animals Foundation

Meet Morris, a 7-year-old Domestic Short Hair available for adoption with Save the Animals Foundation. His estimated birth year is 2013.
 
When you hear the name Morris for a feline, you immediately think he is orange and you usually aren’t wrong. This Morris is a handsome orange and white tabby who is ready to find his forever home! Morris came to STAF several years ago, and although it was known he was FIV positive, other medical issues for which he required surgery were soon discovered. 
 
Morris was a very shy guy and was not always interested in receiving attention. But those days are long past since he has had his painful ear polyps removed and now he can breathe with great ease. He has truly evolved into a friendly guy that is first to look for a hand to pet him, first to show off his handsome looks, and first to prove that with the proper medical care, he can thrive. Now when you look at Morris, he works on selling himself so he can have a permanent lap to lie in. He will  definitely show you that he is the perfect guy for your home!

A Word or about FIV

Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) is not a death sentence and most FIV+ cats die from old age. It is transmitted from one cat to another by deep puncture wounds and is not spread by casual contact. It is also not transmitted to humans or dogs. Studies show that friendly, spayed or neutered cats are very unlikely to spread the virus to other cats or kittens in the home. As long as your cats get along and do not have any serious fights or bite each other, then FIV+ cats and non-FIV+ cats can live together in harmony without harm.
