Norman came to RAPS via fellow rescue organization VOKRA (Vancouver Orphan Kitten Rescue Association). VOKRA had brought him in as a stray and discovered during the routine veterinary exam for new cats that he was FIV positive. They would have liked to give him a foster home where he could be the only cat, but found him to be a bit too nippy to be a good candidate for a placement. And so they asked RAPS to help, as the sanctuary has facilities for cats with FIV — friendly or not.
Once Norman settled in at the sanctuary, he showed himself to be a sweet, friendly boy. The nipping may have been a symptom of initial stress in a new environment, which he got past. With any luck Norman may find himself able to go to a foster home after all.
