This is Mhysa's story: Mhysa was picked up as a stray and brought to the shelter where it was evident that she was pregnant. After stray hold, she was taken into foster care where she and her future babies could be safe and healthy until they could be adopted into a loving forever home. On March 15, 2017, Mhysa birthed 3 female and 2 male kittens whom have since been adopted. She was such a great momma kitty that she also nursed 4 other kittens from another litter.
Mhysa is a gorgeous orange, white, and black calico cat with gold eyes and lots of love to give. She is approximately 2 years old and is very loving, friendly, social, and playful. She doesn't demand attention, but wants to be around people either laying with you or just being in the same room. She doesn't tolerate being alone in a closed room for periods of time as she's very social and will scratch at the door to be where the action is. She is a good eater and likes wet and dry food, but also enjoys treats like we all do! She has been here with us since February and has used her litter box faithfully with no accidents. She loves to play with toys, but her favorite is anything at the end of a pole. She shows her love by laying by your head and playing with, chewing, or licking your hair. She doesn't seem to mind the vacuum cleaner, but can get startled easily with quick movements or loud noises. She's also really good about using her scratch boards!
Mhysa is what we like to refer to as special needs 'lite': We are looking for a home that can provide her with quality food, fresh water, fresh air, and a stress free living situation, along with yearly health checks -- as we would hope any of our adopted cats would receive. The reason we are looking for a home that will take great care of our girl is that Mhysa has tested FIV positive, which has been stigmatized in the past, but current research is showing that lots of cats who test positive live long, happy lives with high quality care. At present, she shows absolutely no signs of being immuno-compromised, which likely means she'll live as long as any cat would in your home. If you have other cats, but are interested in Mhysa, please don't count her out because of this. Often, if cats are friendly toward each other, there is low risk of transmission. The only means of transmission is the exchange of body fluids, such as deep muscle bites and mating. FIV is not transferable to humans!
All Mhysa needs to live a good long life are yearly vet checks, lots of love, and a good quality food. She must be an indoor-only cat!
