Ranger is an endearingly rambunctious rascal with a roaring purr

Ranger – Male Kitten: April 1, 2021

A handsome and charismatic 7-month-old kitten, Ranger is ready PLAY! Ranger is all personality and heart. He is a tireless tiger (or so he thinks anyway) with a massive sweet streak and a very loud rumbling purr.

Ordinarily, Ranger would have been adopted already, but when he was tested for Feline Leukemia (FeLV ) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), the test came back positive for FIV. We waited a few weeks and retested him, but unfortunately, the second test was also positive. FIV+ means Ranger is immunocompromised so it will be important to keep him indoors and away from other cats with illness because his immune system has a harder time fighting off infections.

While FIV is not highly contagious and some FIV cats can live with non-FIV cats, there is always a risk of a bite wound that could spread the disease to another cat. It’s best that Ranger be your one and only kitty or go to a home with another FIV+ cat.

As he is a pretty rambunctious kitten, we think Ranger should got to a home without younger children as he may play too roughly for them.

Ranger has been neutered, has a microchip, and age-appropriate vaccines. We estimate Ranger’s date of birth to be late September 2020. Ranger is considered special needs due to his FIV+ status, so there is no adoption fee.
