Prince Humperdinck: A Gentle FeLV+ Giant Seeks Forever Home

Prince Humperdinck – Adult Male: April 2024

Move over, rodents! Principe Humperdinck (we call him Prince for short) is ready to trade his outdoor crown for a life of luxury indoors. This handsome brown tabby is a sweetheart in a sturdy package. Estimated to be 4 years old (born around April 1st, 2020), Prince is:

  • A total softie: Don’t be fooled by his regal name! Prince is a mellow and affectionate cat who loves to be pet.
  • The king of chill: Forget sword fights, Prince prefers a sunny windowsill or a cozy lap to survey his kingdom.
  • A connoisseur of wet food: This gentle giant enjoys the finer things in life, especially a delicious plate of wet food.
  • A tiny voice with a big heart: Prince’s quiet meows are as adorable as they are surprising for such a big boy.

Special note: Prince has tested positive for Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV). This means he needs a special home environment to keep him healthy and happy.

Here’s what you need to know about FeLV:

  • It’s a virus that weakens a cat’s immune system, making them more susceptible to other illnesses.
  • It is NOT contagious to humans or other animals besides cats.
  • FeLV+ cats can live long and happy lives with proper care, including regular veterinary checkups, a nutritious diet, and a stress-free environment.

Prince’s ideal home:

  • Calm and quiet, with one or two humans who appreciate his gentle soul and can provide him with the specialized care he needs.
  • A home where he will be the only cat or with another FeLV+ cat (to prevent transmission of FeLV). Nemo might be a good buddy for him!
  • A place with plenty of sunlight for napping and world domination (from the comfort of a windowsill, of course).
  • Someone who can shower him with love and wet food.

Prince is:

  • FeLV+. We recommend speaking with your vet about adopting an FeLV+ cat. Can only be with other FeLV+ cats.
  • Neutered, Microchipped and given age-appropriate vaccines.
  • Litter trained
  • Socialized, but may need time to adjust to a new home
