Spayed/House-Trained/Up-to-Date on Vaccinations.
Not Good with Other Cats, Dogs, or Young Children; Prefers to Be an Only Child.
Raven is a very special girl, and needs a very special home. Raven was living outdoors with a colony of cats in the Norwood area, and being fed by an elderly woman. The downside in this situation was none of the cats were being fixed; hence, a LOT of reproduction going on! So, an organization stepped in to capture all the cats and have them spayed and neutered. Raven and two of her four kittens were quite friendly, and simply placed in carriers for their trip to get fixed. Since Raven was sociable, a volunteer agreed to foster her until a forever home was found. Being an older kitty, and having lived most of her life outdoors, Raven can be temperamental. She becomes over stimulated easily; too much noise, activity, or too many sudden moves, and she sometimes becomes a little nippy, or might scratch. Raven’s foster mom truly believes Raven wants to be a sweet girl; she’s sure of it. She actually awards kisses -- licking your face and fingers when she is happy. Most recently, Raven has formed a new and wonderful “habit”; when her foster mom sits down with her, she climbs up into her lap, curls up, and begins purring immediately! It is believed that Raven would do well in a quiet home with no other pets, or young children. Perhaps a home with a professional person who works long hours as Raven seems content to entertain herself with just the “purr”fect amount of minimal human interaction. She loves being petted, but she doesn’t favor brushing that much. She prefers dry food, treats, and adores fresh water from a fountain. Everyone would love nothing more than to see this beautiful, and deserving, girl enjoy the final trimester of her life as happy, comfortable, and safe as she should have been all along. Could YOU possibly be Raven’s “purr’fect person? If you are interested in meeting Raven, or learning more about her, please give Tina a call at
Raven has tested positive for FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus), a disease that suppresses her immune system. But Raven 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.
