They said that they were going to get me a new home - I was like, "YAY!"
Then they said that they had to take some of my blood for testing - I was like, "Um..." (But I was very brave and didn't even cry!)
Then they said that I was positive! I was like, "Of course! You won't find a more upbeat, positive cat than me!" And then they said that it wasn't that kind of positive...
Well, turns out that I'm FIV positive. Which, is not really a terrible thing, just a thing that people like to know. Because it means that I might catch colds easier and I should see a vet every year for a check up (I mean, really ALL cats should do that, anyway!) to make sure I stay healthy because my "immune system might not be as robust as other cats' immune systems".
"Robust"? I'll show you robust! Come on - let's play! I'll out-robust anyone in the room! I've got robust-ness right up to my whiskers! (Not really sure what "robust" means, but I'll bet you I've got tons of it.)
So, if you're looking for a very sweet, super playful cat with a tiny purr and a happy heart, (and who just happens to be FIV positive), please come see me! Tell them you're there to meet Ivy - that's me!
