Pet of the Week: Ferris

Say hello to Ferris, our Pet of the Week!

This six-year-old boy was brought in to RASKC by a good Samaritan in early May. Ferris is an absolute lovebug who enjoys cuddling up with people. He’s very outgoing and carefree, and loves to go with the flow. Ferris has a “Rambunctious Red” personality – he likes to get attention on his own terms, and may get overstimulated with petting. His new family will need to keep an eye out for signs that he needs a break.

Ferris is FIV-positive. FIV, or Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, can cause a cat to be susceptible to other diseases. However, not all cats with FIV will become ill, and many live long, happy lives. Cats with FIV can spread the virus to other cats, so they should be kept inside, and be an “only cat” or live with other FIV+ cats. As with any pet, you should talk to your regular veterinarian about proper health care.

Ferris is ready to fill your home with love – come see him soon! He is neutered, litterbox trained, current on vaccinations, and microchipped. His adoption comes with many benefits, including 30 days of opt-in pet insurance through Trupanion.  Since Ferris is our Pet of the Week, his adoption fee is reduced, though a pet license fee may apply. Learn about all the benefits of pet licensing at kingcounty.gov/LicenseMyPet.

Our Pet Adoption Center in Kent is open to walk-in adoption visitors weekdays from noon to 5 p.m., and weekends noon to 4 p.m. Visit our website at kingcounty.gov/AdoptAPet to see all of our adoptable pets, and learn more about our adoption processes.
