My name is Chauncey and I've got a story for you!

On August 21, I was brought into this strange new place. I was scrawny, so scrawny that the people who brought me in had fondly named me "Bones". On intake, I weighed 7lbs 10oz and you could see every bone in my body. Being all white, I truly looked like a ghost!

The staff just recently had a kitty here named Bones, so they started thinking of other names to call me, and Chauncey stuck! Since becoming Chauncey, I have been spoiled rotten! They feed me several times a day to make sure I am gaining and maintaining my weight - I weigh 9lbs 7oz now!!!

I'm a talkative guy who love my snacks, so food will be the way to my heart. I am affectionate and am just looking for a lap to snuggle up in! I am the longest shelter resident at WCHS right now and I just desperately want to know what it is like to live in a home with a family who adores me! I think I have a lot of love to offer in return for the special family that decides to take me home!

I recently went into the vet for blood work and a urinalysis. Although they believe I am nearing the end of my life, there wasn't anything too concerning in my most recent blood work. They did recommend that regular blood work (about every 6 months) is highly recommended to keep tracking my progress and make sure I do not decline. Currently, I am not on any medications and I am not in any pain - you would never guess I was FIV+!

FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) is transferred between cats through deep bite wounds. It does impact my immune system and make me more susceptible to diseases. So, it is important that I be an indoor-only cat and do not live with any other cats that are not FIV+, if there are FIV- cats in the home, there is a chance of me spreading the virus via fights (posing a risk to your other cat) so it is best I am an only kitty or that you have a long term plan to keep us separate if the need arises. I do not seem to mind dogs and FIV poses no risk to dogs (or people), so I can definitely have canine friends!

My adoption fee is sponsored!!! I am neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, microchipped, have a recent blood panel and urinalysis, am FeLV and Heartworm negative, and FIV+.

Think you could offer me a forever home? Come and get me! I'm ready to go home!
