Tahli is a sweet, playful 2-year-old boy originally from Louisiana! He's enjoying his new life in the Pacific Northwest and would make a wonderful addition to your family. He is energetic and loves a good play session to tire him out before pets and head scratches. Tahli does well at the shelter with other young cats, and would make a good friend and companion to another lively kitty.
Tahli tested positive for heartworm, which is more common in the southern US. Heartworm disease is NOT contagious between direct contact in cats (and dogs!), and can only be spread via mosquito bites. He is a perfectly normal, healthy kitty, and safe to be around other animals. Having tested positive for heartworm just means Tahli needs a family who can be consistent in applying his monthly flea + heartworm medicine (Revolution) and getting him retested every six months.
