Rakesh gazes at the sky from his catio and dreams. Well he seems very introspective to me! He always looks content and loves to 'people watch'. Rakesh came to us from Louisana. So maybe this bayou boy is intrigued by our desert environment. He sure loves to go for walks and snoop around the sagebrush. 

Rakesh has Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), so his forever home will need to watch him a little more closely for signs of illness. FIV weakens Rakesh's immune system, so he's less able to fight off infection. Cats with FIV can live long and happy lives with just a little extra supportive care. You can read more about this condition here.

We all want Rakesh to find a home of his very own where this dreamy boy can have all the love and attention he so deserves. In the meantime, we'll love this guy and make sure he enjoys all life has to offer until that special someone adopts Rakesh and takes him home forever.
