Oggy

STATUS: Adopted

Meet Oggy!  Oggy is an approximately 3.5 years old gentle giant rescued from a rural property where he was likely abandoned. He is a lover boy – loves to be held and loves to lie on his foster parents’ laps. Oggy likes to play with a laser toy, bouncy sponge balls, wand toys and catnip toys. He has a SlimCat ball that also keeps him occupied while he tries to get at the treats that you put inside.  Oggy does the slow blink and gives nose to nose kisses. He loves gentle tummy rubs and kneads his paws showing just how much he loves them. He is a good boy and uses his scratching post. 

Oggy would do best as an only cat and would be fine with older children. He can get underfoot and walk between his foster parents’ legs so he might not suit someone elderly with balance issues. 

Oggy has been neutered, vaccinated & microchipped.  He did test positive for FIV but it does not slow him down – please refer below for more information on FIV.  If you have room in your heart & your home for Oggy, contact us here or email [email protected]. The adoption fee is $200.

FIV

—–

FIV is a feline only virus that cannot be transmitted to people or other animal species. FIV is not passed between cats through casual contact like sharing food bowls or litter boxes or through playing, wrestling or licking/cleaning each other. FIV is passed between cats through a deep bite wound – deep enough to inject saliva into the bloodstream of the other cat – commonly occurring in outdoor cats who fight for territory. Purdue University’s College of Veterinary Medicine conducted a long-term study in cat shelters and found that FIV-positive cats can live with FIV-negative cats and not infect the FIV-negative cats during normal day-to-day interaction. Studies over the last 10 years have also shown that cats with FIV often live as long as otherwise healthy cats that do not have this virus. For more information, please check out the links below:
