Miko's Story...
Cool Cat

Miko, a 1.5 year-old FIV+ male, is the definition of a cool cat!  This calm, laid-back, and loving boy acts as a stress-reliever to everyone he meets.  Miko was rescued when he wandered up to a consignment shop of all places! Like the clothing in the store, Miko is ready for his 2nd chance at a loving home. Miko would be happy to lounge on the couch with you, as he is also a first-class nurturer to humans and cats alike.  When introduced to a newly-rescued and terrified semi-feral kitten, Miko did not hesitate to take the kitten under his wing.  Within 24 hours of meeting Miko, the kitten had completely relaxed and was loving life—Miko to the rescue!  Miko is also a ham, and welcomes love from his human companions.  Don’t those chubby cheeks just call out for kisses?!  Strong and lean, Miko’s markings identify him as part Ocicat. Don’t let Miko’s FIV + status be intimidating. FIV + cats can live long, healthy lives with just a little extra TLC. SNAP is more than happy to give you information on FIV and how to introduce an FIV+ cat to your home. Miko would be a great addition to any home, so please fill out an application to meet the cool cat himself today! Below are a few links to read up on FIV and learn the joys that can come from adding an FIV+ feline to your family!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Atlanta 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 Atlanta 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 Ocicat breeders who help with Ocicat rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Atlanta paves the way for another one to be saved.
