Bartholomew is a handsome fellow who is FIV+. This has scared off some potential adopters, but his kind nature will soon win over the right person very soon. In fact, Bart came along with volunteers for a recent event and melted all hearts in the house! More than anything else, handsome Bartholomew would love a lap to call his own. You see, for a while, he wandered the streets of Cincinnati’s west side after being abandoned by his family searching for food and love. He finally happened upon an apartment building where a cat-loving nun resides. She started feeding him, but couldn’t keep him due to pet limits at the building. She became very concerned about Bart when a maintenance person threatened to poison him and reached out for help. Bart is currently in foster home, but is ready for a home with a family or person of his own. He’s a young guy at just over a year old. Now that he’s safe and warm inside, his inner kitten has revealed itself. He loves to play! His absolute favorite thing, though, is to be on your lap, happily purring away. Bart loves people and does great with the cats in his foster home. He would do well with kids or dogs, too. He’s just an all-around sweetheart! And, he’s a great conversationalist, definitely the type of kitty who will tell you all about his day. Also, did we mention that he loves laps? If you have available one, Bart would love to be your lap kitty! Meet Bart:
