Bow is a large and handsome orange tabby cat who is very lovable. He came to the shelter with two other cats who were all put out on the street when their owner was moved to a nursing home. Bow is very fond of Glitter a pretty gray tortie and she of him. We know it is a lot to hope for that they can be placed together but it would be nice for them as Glitter is his anchor and she is nuts about him. They were separated for 48 hours when she went off to be spayed. When she returned and her carrier was opened she flew into his cubby and meowed and meowed as she "kissed" him all over telling him about her adventures when they were apart. Bow spends most of his time curled up with Glitter but if you take the time to sit down with him and scratch behind his ears he purrs and pads out of his bed to visit. Bow is FIV positive which in part means he needs to remain an indoor cat. He is in great health at approximately 4 years old. He gets along with every cat he has met. FIV cats can live long and healthy lives if they are kept indoors, have regular wellness visits at the vet and are fed a high quality diet.
If not adopted together Bow would do best to have an indoor cat companion to form a new bond with. Small children may frighten him and since he doesn't like to be picked up we think he would be a better fit for a family with kids over age 12.
