Virgil is a sweet 9 year old boy. He is incredibly social and is a lover to all. Virgil needs to be on a special diet; if you have any questions about his dietary needs please contact the shelter. Please note that Virgil has tested positive for FIV. FIV is NOT a highly contagious disease but it is transmitted through deep bite wounds from cat to cat.
The Gifford Cat Shelter is a cageless, no-kill facility founded in 1884 and sponsored by Ellen Gifford.
The shelter is a pioneer in creating an environment that does not confine cats to small, movement-restricting cages.
