FIV+ young male cat needs home ASAP

Urgent - Jacob is a 2 yo FIV+ m cat who was found outdoors. We believe someone moved and abandoned him. Jacob has thrived living indoors; he's put on weight and is a healthy boy. He's friendly and sweet. He he is now losing a second home too because the family is moving and can't take him with them. If you can give this poor boy the loving, permanent home he deserves, please contact He's been fully-vetted and is negative for FeLV. He is located in Central NJ, but transport can be arranged to the right home.

On a personal note, I've had several FIV+ cats and they have all lived normal lifespan. They have lived with cats who are negative for FIV and it has never been transmitted. FIV is passed through deep, penetrating bite wounds - the type of wounds you usually see with unneutered tomcats.
