She's a sweet, gentle girl who loves to be held and petted. She has beautiful Tortoiseshell markings and the softest fur!
Sadly, Sandy is FIV+. FIV is a cat-only disease - you cannot catch FIV from your cat. FIV is spread between cats by bite wounds and blood transfusions. This means it cannot be spread by sharing litter boxes, food bowls, water dishes, snuggling or playing together. FIV cats can live long and normal lives. Because FIV is so widely misunderstood, many people who don't know any better are afraid to adopt cats that are FIV+. Our FIV+ cats are all healthy and beautiful and are some of the most loving, affectionate cats we have ever met – but most of them have been with us a long time, waiting to be adopted, just because people who don't know any better are afraid of the virus they carry. Please consider adopting one of these wonderful cats! If you meet them, you will fall in love. Educate yourself about FIV and consider giving one of these cats (like gorgeous Sandy!) a loving home!
