Paula II's Story...
Paula’s portrait may look like she is saying “talk to the tail, cause the whiskers ain’t listening,” but that look is a little deceiving. Paula is really quite sweet. She spent some time in a foster home, and her foster mom reports that Paula is not shy at all, loves to play (especially with flying toys), very curious, and definitely super friendly. She does enjoy just sitting in your lap at times just chillin’. Paula sometimes does have her “boundaries,” and she lets you know when they come up with a flapping tail or a little hiss. She is just asking for a little space and time, and then she will return to ask for attention.
Paula was found roaming the streets in the Avondale area, and ended up at the local SPCA where she made the roster for the Feral Freedom Program partnered with OAR. Paula is now all healthy and would be so ever grateful to the wonderful human that would bless her with a forever home. Since Paula sometimes does show her boundaries, she might be a little too much for small children.
Paula has tested positive for FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus), a disease that suppresses her immune system. But she is a perfectly healthy kitty (as you can see), with no signs of being slowed down by FIV! Most cats with FIV live long, healthy lives with no symptoms at all. The disease is not spread through casual contact -- like the sharing of litter boxes, water and food bowls, or through snuggling and playing with other cats. FIV is almost exclusively spread through deep penetrating bite wounds, and a neutered/spayed FIV+ cat is extremely unlikely to infect other cats if properly introduced.
