Rudie's Info...

I am already neutered, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, not good with dogs, and not good with cats.

Rudie's Story... name is Rudie , I was born June/16 & I am FIV positive. I have had all shots, neutered and I am perfectly healthy. My foster mom says I'm a totally sweetheart and I love attention. I'd really like to find my forever home. I need to find a home with no other cats or a home with another FIV cat.


The Quick Facts About Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) Positive Cats

FIV is a slow virus that affects the immune system over a period of years.
FIV is a cat-only disease. It cannot be spread to humans or other non-felines.
FIV is spread through serious, penetrating bite wounds. The type of bite wound that is seen most often in feral, intact tomcats. The virus can also be spread through blood transfusions and on occasion a mother may infect her kittens while they’re in the womb or through her milk after they are born.
FIV can’t be spread casually between cats, such as in water or food bowls, or in litter boxes. Cuddling, playing and other forms of casual physical contact do not spread the virus.
The FIV virus was discovered in 1986. Before then, FIV positive cats and non-FIV cats lived together peacefully all the time.
FIV itself does not shorten a cat’s life-span. Because FIV affects a cat’s immune system it is more difficult for an FIV+ cat to fight off disease. For that reason an FIV+ cat requires a diligent owner—someone who will take her to the vet twice a year for check ups and, immediately, at the first sign of illness.
FIV+ cats are no different from other cats, often living long, healthy lives, never showing any symptoms at all.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rudie, a Woodstock Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Woodstock, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Woodstock.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Woodstock already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Woodstock breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Woodstock paves the way for another one to be saved.
