Honeydew Melon ‘paw’mises to be a refreshing treat to whoever comes and makes him part of their family. He is the healthy choice you should make; and he is gluten-free! Honeydew came to OAR from an organization that was having difficulty finding him a home simply because he is FIV+, which most everyone now knows is no big deal (see below for further information regarding FIV+). Honeydew may take a few minutes to warm up to you, but he is just a love of a boy who is laid-back, a lap kitty, and quite playful. He totally enjoys head and chin scratches, and will roll over for tummy rubs; these all result in a soft and happy purr. Honeydew has quite a long set of legs on him, and has lots of marmalade fur to set him off. He is just plain dapper. Honeydew is longing for a forever home where he will feel safe, secure, and happy. Why not be his hero and make him the dessert you know you want.

Honeydew has tested positive for FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus), a disease that suppresses his immune system. But Honeydew is a perfectly healthy cat, with no signs of being slowed down by FIV! Most cats with FIV live long, healthy lives with no symptoms at all. The disease is not spread through casual contact -- like the sharing of litter boxes, water and food bowls, or through snuggling and playing with other cats. FIV is almost exclusively spread through deep penetrating bite wounds, and a neutered/spayed FIV+ cat is extremely unlikely to infect other cats if properly introduced.

Our Adoption Process...

We have many cats and kittens looking for wonderful homes! All of our cats are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, tested for FIV and Feline Leukemia, and microchipped. Adoption fee is $50. Because we like for our cats to go home in pairs, we have a standing 2 for 1 adoption special -- you can adopt 2 cats for one fee of $50.

Meet some of our cats and kittens, and fill out an application today! An OAR representative will get in touch with you to discuss your application. We do require a phone screening before an adoption so if you are coming to visit the cats and hope to take a cat or kitten home that day, fill out and submit the application at least a day beforehand so we can pre-approve your adoption.

As of 3/7/12, our adoption policy requires that the adopters of our cats not declaw the cats, no matter what the cat's age. We will, with our adoption counselors' help, provide potential adopters with information on alternatives to declawing. We also sometimes have previously declawed cats up for adoption. These can be a good alternative for adopters who are adamant about declawing.
