Griffin is an approximately 5-year-old grey and white tiger domestic shorthair neutered male cat. He was originally found as a stray in a southern Berkshire County town. Griffin is Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) positive, so should not go to a home with cats that are FIV negative. With proper care, including keeping the cat indoors, FIV positive cats can live for years. Griffin loves to be held and perch on your shoulder. He gives hugs and nuzzles into you to show his appreciation. He will talk for attention or food, and he loves to eat.

To learn more about Griffin and all the animals looking for their forever home, contact the Berkshire Humane Society at 214 Barker Road in Pittsfield, or give the shelter a call at (413) 447-7878 extension 126.

The Berkshire Humane Society is now back open to the public for regular hours with masks required and social distancing in place.
