Maddie is a very pretty 3 yr old short-haired white with Grey mask and mantle markings female. She is can be sweet and enjoys being petted on her terms, but gets over stimulated easily and can get a little grouchy and nippy. She is very playful and in a home environment, regular play could help her release some of her pent up nervous energy. She is FIV+ which is the feline immunovirus. It is only contagious to other cats. It means her immune system is a little weaker than average, but most cats with FIV live long healthy lives if they are in a safe, indoor only, calm environment . They have been adopted with other FIV+ cats and many people have adopted FIV+ cats who have non-FIV cats without their non-FIV cats contracting it. Please discuss with your Veterinarian to help you decide. There is a vaccination for FIV that you can discuss with you Veterinarian as well. She does not care for other cats (perhaps because her roommates are all boys ;>), but tolerates her FIV roommates as long as they don't bother her. She would prefer to be the only cat, but might be O.K. with other cats in a large enough environment. We don't know about dogs. Because she can get a tiny bit grouchy when she's over stimulated, she should not be around younger children, but might be O.K. with calm, older children who can give her some space. Come meet this pretty girl.
