Adopt Me: Star likes to greet visitors (adopted)

This sweet boy is FIV positive, but FIV is only contagious to other felines and cannot be transmitted to humans
Star 2

KitchenerToday, in partnership with the Kitchener-Waterloo Humane Society, brings you a regular feature highlighting a special pet that is in need of adoption.


Star is a two-year-old, handsome cat with so much love to give. He is always excited to see people arriving, greeting visitors and giving many head-butts for lots of pets on the head in return.
Star is FIV Positive. FIV is only contagious to other felines and cannot be transmitted to humans. 
Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, commonly called FIV, is a disease of cats similar to human HIV/AIDS. Like a person with HIV, a cat can be infected with FIV and enjoy good quality of life for quite some time before developing any complications.
Some cats live a long and healthy life and never have any problems secondary to their FIV infection.
We recommend that FIV positive cats be adopted into single cat homes or into a home with other FIV positive cats.
