Freyja is a beautiful white & tabby girl who has tested + for FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus). She came to our center in January 2014 after she had a bad reaction some flea medicine. Her owner had only had her a short time and could not afford to take her the vet. After a bath, good food, and time to heal, she is doing great. Her name means 'Lady' in Old Norse where she is a goddess of fertility and love. She was born in August 2011.
Freyja is also known as 'Mrs. Tabby Tail.' She is mostly white with a tabby spot on top of her head and a full tabby tail...it kind of looks like she is wearing a hat:) She is very loving and calm. She tolerates other cats but is more interested in socializing with people. She is used to being around dogs but keeps to herself when they are around.
When Freyja recently went into foster care, she just made herself right at home very quickly. It only took her a few days to adjust to the new place and she thoroughly enjoyed exploring all the beds, closets, and windowsills. Her favorite spots to hang out are the bed or to watch the bird and squirrel feeders through a glass door. At night time, she likes sleep in a chair, but will sometimes sleep at the foot of the bed. She will occasionally maker herself comfortable on your chest, too:)
Freyja loves people, but gravitates toward men and kids. She will play on occasion and likes to paw at small balls on the ground. She likes her Purina ONE dry food but is more particular when it comes to canned food. She prefers to eat canned food with chunks or gravy instead of pate. She is very low maintenance, easy going, and undemanding.
FIV is a manageable disease that is frequently misunderstood; most FIV+ cats live long happy, healthy lives with proper care. Freyja is as healthy as can be and shows absolutely no signs of illness. She is not really a special needs cat but gets labeled as such due to her FIV. FIV is spread through mating and deep bites, so is very unlikely to be spread with simple contact. Your veterinarian will work with you to establish a plan to keep Freyja healthy.
