People for Cats helped turn Woody's life around

This gray guy needs a little weight and a lot of love
Meet Woody, this lucky fella needs a lot of love. People for Cats photo.

Woody is a sweet silver/gray domestic shorthair male. This boy was found as a skinny unneutered stray. He is approximately 4- to 5-years-old, has short silver/gray fur and very expressive golden eyes.

This poor guy has had a rough start in life and has obviously been on his own for quite a while.

Woody is still quite skinny and had lost a fair amount of fur on his backside. But with good nutrition and care he has turned a corner and is now starting to regain his health and good looks.

Through all of this he has remained a sweetheart who just loves being petted and he is quite vocal begging for attention. He has been neutered and is now looking for his own fur-ever home.

Woody has tested positive for the FIV virus, which is not contagious to humans, dogs, or other species, but is contagious to other cats. The FIV virus is a lentivirus (or “slow virus”), so with good nutrition and an indoor lifestyle a cat can live many health years after exposure.
