Meet Sweet Pea. Her name fits her purr-fectly. Sweet Pea is a little sweetheart, who loves to held and sit in a warm lap. She likes to ‘chirp’ and meow to you when you pet her. She will lay her head in the crook of your neck and purr as long as you will let her. She loves sitting on her window seat in the sunshine and watching the birds outside. She is a gorgeous grey and tan calico with short-mid hair and beautiful eyes. She is approximately 1 to 1-1/2 years old. She has been spayed; she is litter box trained and is current on all vaccinations.
Sweet Pea was found in a backyard in the summer of 2016 and was very small at the time. She immediately came to the kind woman who found her and then gave her lots of love and a healthy diet. Since then Sweet Pea has gained weight and is thriving. She was brought to ‘For The Cat Sake’ to find her forever home, as her current care giver who found her already has several special needs pets and could not give Sweet Pea the time and care she deserves.
Sweet Pea would do well in a dog-free home and would be an amazing companion for someone who could care for her and love her. She would probably do best in a single cat household.
Sweet Pea would need to be an indoor kitty as she does have special needs. She is FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) positive. However, that diagnosis does not require any special medication and she has no symptoms. The veterinarian said she may ever have any symptoms. FIV can NOT be transferred to humans. FIV is an autoimmune disease that ONLY affects felines, NOT humans. FIV can only be transferred to other cats through deep wounds. With the right attention and care she will continue to thrive and live a long normal life.
