Arnie's Story...
Arnie, who is about 9 or 10, is a very sweet, long-haired black cat. (His photos don't do him justice!) He has tested “positive” for FIV, but is still very adoptable. He is quite handsome and looks and acts like a healthy "normal" cat. He is neutered, has received all the standard vaccinations as well as the vaccination against feline leukemia, and has a lot of love to give to the person -- or people -- who adopt him. After apparently being abandoned, Arnie survived several years in the back yard of a woman who fed him and placed a plastic igloo for him in the winter, but her landlord would not allow Arnie into the house. Even though he is a lot better off than he was for several years after being "dumped," it would be nice if Arnie could spend the rest of his senior years in a loving home. Many FIV-positive cats don’t ever actually come down with FIV, and some of them even live to a ripe old age. As a precaution, however, they should only be placed with other FIV-positive cats or be the solo cat in a home. (FIV – technically known as the "feline immunodeficiency virus" which can cause a weakened immune system in cats – is not contagious to humans or any pets except other cats, and it is only spread among cats via sexual intercourse or deep bite wounds.) Arnie is currently in a boarding facility in Newbury (in Geauga County, OH). Interested potential adopters can call 440.759-0076 or can email

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Chesterland 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 Chesterland 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 Longhair breeders who help with Domestic Longhair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Chesterland paves the way for another one to be saved.
