This big kitty with the sweetest face and a loving heart was given a second chance at life. He was so happy that he couldn't stop cuddling with his rescuers.

Meet Lambert the Cat!

This 2 1/2 year old cat ended up in a high-kill shelter where his fate became uncertain. He is FIV+ (feline immunodeficiency virus, which causes a weakening of the cat's immune system). Cats like Lambert can live a long and happy life, but many FIV+ shelter cats don't get the chance that they so deserve.

Lambert is a Lynx Point Siamese who has a sweet nature and so much to give.

"He is extremely sweet and gentle, the vets do not believe there would be any problem with him living with other cats, as the disease is only transmitted to other cats from deep puncture (bite) wounds. FIV is not transmittable to humans," Amy Ridall of BH Studios said.

Save A Purrfect Cat Rescue pulled the big boy out of the shelter and into their adoption program where he was immediately welcomed with open arms.

"Even though he is FIV+, he can live a long, healthy and most importantly happy life," Save A Purrfect Cat Rescue told Love Meow.

Ever since Lambert came to Save A Purrfect Cat Rescue, he hasn't stopped purring. He's a big buddy and a gentle, affectionate cuddle bear.

The day they took him out of the shelter is the day that made him the happiest kitty in the world. He cuddled with the director of Save a Purrfect Cat Rescue and didn't want to let go.

They brought him to a foster home where he continues his hug giving routine. "He is doing well in foster careā€¦ Lambert is a gentle, sweet lover boy!"

Lambert is happy to have a foster family that cares for him, but now his biggest wish is to find a place he calls his own.
