Elvin's Info...

Elvin's Story...
Elvin and his buddy Porter (also up for adoption) are named after some music greats, so we call them The Blues Brothers! (If it’s more to your taste, you can rename them Jake and Elwood after you adopt them!)

Elvin and Porter were living as outside cats. Their caretaker sadly experienced financial problems and was losing his property, leaving Elvin and Porter homeless. When they came to Stray Cat Blues’ barn cat foster home, it was found that they were in fact very gentle and friendly. So, we want to give these boys a better life, and get them adopted as inside cats.

Elvin is super friendly. Porter “talks tough” by hissing at you to start, but he’s really all bark and no bite. His gentle side is quickly apparent once he settles.

Both of these boys at some point during their outside life became FIV positive. FIV stands for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. FIV can suppress the immune system but most cats live very long and healthy lives with FIV. For more information on FIV our volunteers would be happy to discuss this condition with you. FIV cannot be spread to people or to non-cat pets such as dogs. FIV+ cats are sweet, funny, affectionate, and playful, just as any other cat!

Elvin and Porter get along well and would love to go to a home together. They can also be adopted separately.

Elvin and Porter are both neutered, litterbox trained, and are up to date on vaccinations. They have tested negative for FeLV but positive for FIV. They are healthy, with the exception of Porter’s very occasional sneezing. They are both already microchipped, and have been bathed and groomed!

We estimate that Elvin is 6 years old, and Porter is 9 years old. Please give these two cats a chance. You will be very glad that you did!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Elvin, a Colmar Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Colmar, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Colmar.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Colmar already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Colmar breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Colmar paves the way for another one to be saved.
