Facts about Mikey

  • Breed: Domestic Shorthair
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Male

I’ve been waiting for my forever home since April 2016.

Mikey & Michael are very sweet, affectionate boys. They love to lie on your lap and soak up all of the love that you are willing to give them. They even enjoy a good brushing. These two boys are brothers and you can see the love that they have for one another.  They have been together since birth and somehow found themselves at a local kill facility, sick with upper respiratory infection and depression. They were beside each other in secluded, cold, stainless steel cages. They could sense each others presence but could not see or comfort each other. Their future was grim. The Cat Corner was made aware of their situation and that they would likely be euthanized due to them not faring well in the shelter environment. They were so depressed they were hardly eating. There was one other hurdle--they tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). What is FIV? FIV is a feline only, slow-acting virus. It is so slow to progress that most FIV+ cats die of old age instead of complications from the disease. What is FIV not? Well, it’s not a death sentence, as old school veterinarians used to think. A cat with FIV can live a very full, healthy life with this disease. There are still shelters that will euthanize cats immediately once they test positive for FIV, which is very sad. Yes, there are some cats with very weak immune systems that will not fare well with this disease, but that is not usually the case. It is also relatively hard for a cat to transmit FIV to another cat; usually cats are born with FIV.

Mikey & Michael are a bonded pair. Their adoption fee is $120 for both cats ($60 each).

This kitty is currently in foster care.  
To arrange a meeting, please e-mail:  foster@thecatcornerinc.com
As a rescue organization, we think that it is so important to ensure that all of our cats and kittens are socialized and as comfortable as possible. Shelter environments are stressful, and some cats do not fair as well as others. For this reason, a cat or kitten may be located in foster care as opposed to our other locations.

 

Adoption Package
The list below includes all of the basic services that each of our cats receives:

  • Spay/Neuter surgery
  • Feline Leukemia/FIV combo test
  • Microchip with free lifetime registration
  • Rabies vaccination
  • FVRCP (Feline distemper) vaccinations; complete series
  • Bordetella vaccination
  • De-worming treatments
  • Flea treatment
  • Full senior blood panel for cats 8+ years of age
  • Starter cat/kitten food
  • Behavioral assessment
  • A continuing resource to answer any of your questions or concerns

Our adoption fee helps to offset the services that we provide for your newest furry addition. It also acts as a donation to help support our organization as a whole, allowing us to continue our efforts to rescue and re-home cats in need of our help.

Thank You For Choosing to Adopt!!
As a no-kill rescue, we can only bring in and save more cats and kittens in need as our current cats and kittens are adopted. This is why we say that when you adopt one cat or kitten you are actually saving TWO lives! One is the current cat or kitten that you are adopting, the second is the one that we now have room to save and place into our safe shelter.
