Meet Bear! Bear is a 5-year-old boy who weighs about 12 pounds and is a total sweetheart. Not only does Bear love all the humans he meets, but he gets along with other cats as well! Bear is the total package but has been overlooked partly because he is FIV positive. FIV is a feline illness that is largely misunderstood, and Bear needs the right person to come along who understands that most cats with FIV live full and healthy lives. Bear is a very sweet and dashing boy who has lots of love to give! He is one of the staff favorites at the Humane Society of St. Joseph County, but would love a home of his own and a lap to curl up on.
