Tahli is a sweet, playful 2-year-old boy originally from Texas! 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, playful, and energetic cats, but does not do well with senior or dominant cats, as his type of playtime can be more of the roughhousing variety. He is not a fit for homes with young children because of this.
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).
