Chip came to KAR super sick from animal control in another county. I rushed him to the vet super concerned about his health because he looked so sickly. When we got to the vet he hopped off the exam table purring and exploring the room. Each person that came into the room Chip greeted by rubbing against their legs. When it was exam time he head butted both the veterinarian and me. Chip is a super laid back kitty just looking for a little love. He gets along great with other cats, and would likely do well in a home with small children or even dogs. Chip tested positive for FIV (Feline immunodeficiency virus.). Cats with FIV given proper vet care do not have their life shortened. FIV is only transmittable between cats who are mating or give each other a deep wound bites. Cats with FIV live a long healthy life in a stress free environment. Chip is living in a room with several cats who are FIV negative. Chip is so laid back and easy going never phased if one of the other cats is being sassy.
Shannon B was his foster parent.
