49437 – Chip
Why choose me?
Update 5/24/18: You may recognize Chip from before… he is now back at the shelter and available for you to adopt! The reason he was returned was through no fault of his own. He was doing fine in his new home and got along great with the other cats who live there… however, the roommates of Chips adopter did not understand that Chip’s FIV+ status is no big deal, and decided they did not want Chip to live in the same household with the other cats. This is a shame, because an FIV+ cat can coexist with other cats just fine, because it can only be transmitted via birth mother, or a deep bite wound. And Chip’s definitely not a fighter at all. He loves the company of other cats! He’d also do fine as an only cat, if that’s what you prefer. FIV is not transmittable to humans, dogs, or other pets.
On a much better note, Chip has a “chipper” outlook on life. When I visited him today, he didn’t seem overly nervous or stressed after having just arrived back at the shelter. You’ll be Chip’s forever hero if you’ll just adopt him into your indoor-only home today.
Chip’s original bio: We are fairly certain that Chip once had a family and lived in a home, because he showed up at the home of a nice family and begged to move in. Oftentimes, cats are abandoned when people move… and we’d bet this is the case for Chip. This dapper fellow is not holding any grudges though, because he’s clearly ready to find his fur-ever home. Chip’s favorite activity is to lounge in warm, relaxing cat beds. We suspect that he will be a laid-back guy, once he settles into a new abode. Here at the shelter, Chip is a bit cautious when you first meet him, which is understandable given that he is new to the front of the shelter. If you move slowly, and offer him some pets, he warms up quickly, and you’ll see that he’s a gentle, jovial guy. Chip needs an indoor-only home, but we know that you’ll want this loyal companion by your side at all times, once you are charmed by his wonderful “purr-sonality”. Chip is now neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, and is ready to move in with you today. Won’t you come meet this sweet, handsome fellow soon?
