Timmy, a 7-year-old cream-colored long-haired flame point Siamese cat, has had a such a tough time. Rescued at the beginning of this year, he was in horrible shape with an extreme ear infection with mites. A nice lady rescued him from some bad boys that were mistreating Timmy who was just trying to survive on his own, according to Friends for Life.
Timmy is quite a character. He has tons of personality and lots of love to give. He is also very affectionate.
This little guy does need a special home. Timmy tested FIV positive, which means he has to be an only cat or live with other FIV positive cats. FIV is NOT transferable to people. Volunteers at the shelter would be happy to talk more about this with anyone interested.
Right now, Timmy is volunteering at Friends for Life acting as office cat/greeter. He’d love to have an early retirement to a nice home where he can enjoy leisure and recreation. Timmy is neutered, microchipped, current on vaccinations, and house trained. If you’d like to meet him, contact Friends for Life at (480)497-8296 or visit them online and see more pictures of Timmy at www.azfriends.org.
