Edgar                  SANDY GEDDRY

Edgar has been given a very important job at Responsible Pet Care. He is the chief mouse catcher on the second floor of the shelter. He also serves as lunch monitor to the staff and can be found sitting on someone’s lap at lunch breaks.
Edgar is five years old. His black fur with the white bib makes him a tuxedo kitty.  His friendly personality makes him a pleasure to have around.
Edgar has feline immunodeficiency virus, a.k.a FIV. Recent studies suggest that cats with FIV commonly live normal life spans. The primary mode of transmission for FIV is through bite wounds. Cats living in households with stable social structures where housemates do not fight are at little risk of acquiring FIV infections. ( See https://www.vet.cornell.edu for more information.) However, Edgar should be kept indoors.
Whether you require a champion mouse catcher or just someone to share your lunch with, Edgar is available and waiting for you at Responsible Pet Care.
