Martie is looking for a bit o' luck! Let us tell you why to help you understand. Martie is very feral - he barely survived a coyote attack in which he lost his tail - he is FIV positive. This means he cannot return to his caregiver and community and this has been a huge stress for poor Martie to begin living in close confines with humans at MEOW.
Due to Martie's long time on the streets and probably from a past territorial skirmish, he has contracted FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus). Please do not be afraid of adopting Martie. Cats with FIV usually live long uneventful lives wtih normal attentive care. Martie could be a companion in a household with another FIV cat.
The good news is that everyone at MEOW will love him and work to socialize him. He just can't feel the love yet, but we won't give up. Right now he loves his food and his hidey bed. The next step will be to see if he will take an interest in cat toys and from there, we have all the hope in the world that Martie will find his forever home.
