Male Domestic Short Hair (short coat) named Wesley available for adoption



Breed: Domestic Short Hair (short coat)
Primary Breed: Domestic Short Hair
Age: Adult
Color: Brown
Sex: Male

Wesley is always excited to see people. As soon as you sit down, he wants to greet you. He gets along great with other cats, too. Born in 2014, he came from a Utah shelter. Wesley has Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), but he can still live a long and happy life. He can even live with cats who don't have the virus, because it's only spread via deep bite wounds. Wesley is a lover, not a fighter! His biggest problem is that he's a little overweight, so we limit his food intake. He has been on a sleepover and did very well. He only meowed in the carrier a few times. He was a little leery of outside noises, but adjusted quickly. He will adjust just as quickly to a new home, where he will shower his people with head butts!
