Popsicles is a sweet girl who hasn't been in the free-roaming room very long. She's a little nervous. She is also FIV+. FIV is an often misunderstood condition. It moves very slowly and gradually affects a cat’s immune system. Basically if a cat gets sick it would take their immune system a little longer than normal to fight it off. Transmission to other cats is difficult- only through very deep bite wounds or sexual activity which is rare in spayed or neutered domesticated cats. FIV cats can live long, healthy lives if cared for properly. Many live their entire lives without any symptoms at all. Owner’s of FIV+ cats should try to keep their immune systems strong by providing a high quality diet, staying up-to-date on vaccines and routine vet visits, and not delaying when a cat shows symptoms of illness. All our FIV+ cats are otherwise healthy and cleared for adoption by our veterinarians.
Thanks for your interest in adopting a cat from FACE! Adult cats (over 1 year of age) are $25 to adopt. They are all spayed/neutered, fully vaccinated, tested for Feline Leukemia and FIV, and microchipped! We have a wonderful free-roaming room where all of our adoptable cats have the freedom to explore and interact with the other cats which makes them well socialized and ready for homes. You can find an adoption application at http://facespayneuter.org/adoptions/cat-adoption-application/ or if you have specific questions you can email our Adoption Coordinator at Janetm@facespayneuter.org.
