Domestic Short Hair


Philadelphia, PA


You can't miss this guy when you stop into our Grant Ave location. He's usually upside down on his back meowing his head off if he notices you looking at him. If you are looking for a lovable, friendly male cat Mushroom is your guy! He's a young fellow at about 2-4 years old and loves to play.

Mushroom is FIV positive, which is no big deal at all! The Feline Immunodeficiency Virus can affect a cat's immune system over a period of years. FIV+ cats most often live long, healthy, and relatively normal lives with no symptoms. FIV cannot be spread to people.

Mushroom can live happily with other cats without a serious risk of transmission: FIV can only be spread through bites/cuts, so transmission is only an issue if cats fight with one another. Mushroom has shown only friendly behavior with other cats, and so we do not consider this to be a concern in his case.

Name: Mushroom
Age: 2-4 years
Reason for surrender: Surrendered due to moving
Animal ID#: A31600008
