Figi meets a friend

Here is Figi in the arms of a three-and-a-half year old friend (20-month-old enthusiastic friend not pictured). He allowed himself to be adored and loved and never showed even a hint of intolerance. Luckily no doll clothes were available or Figi would have been pressed into service as a babydoll, he is that sweet.

Figi is a cat with some special needs: he is deaf and he is FIV positive. Many shelters have decided to place FIV positive and negative cats together, as it is not easily transmitted. Other special needs of Figi: a thousand pets, a lap, some love. He is the sweetest.
