About King Tutt
Hello! My name is King Tutt and I'm a super-sweet guy! And handsome, too, as you can clearly see from my photos. I tolerate being held longer than the average cat and settle into new places easily. Basically, I'm pretty chill. I'm looking for someone who will treat me with the regality that my name connotes.
King Tutt is FIV positive, FIV is the feline version of HIV (it does not infect humans), and will affect the immune system in the same way. It is a retrovirus, so it takes a long time before infected cats become symptomatic; he should have good quality of life for a substantial period of time. FIV can be transmitted to other cats through blood and saliva contact (i.e., a deep bite). As with all cats, those with FIV can live safely with other cats provided their personalities mesh.
