JUPITER's Story...

My name is Jupiter, I am a very sweet boy! I am very content and well-adjusted in my home environment here, but I'm looking for a place to call my own. I am about 2-3 years old and I've had all my vet work done. I am here because I am FiV+.

What is FiV you ask? Well, it's kind of like HiV in humans, it's an immunodeficiency virus, but unlike HiV it doesn't lead to anything else. It's certainly NOT a death-sentence, as long as I'm fed decent food and kept indoors, I can live a long healthy life - just like any other cat! I can even live with another cat, the only way FiV is transmitted is through blood, the most common was is when a Tom cat (unneutered male) fights with a rival male, that's how I probably got infected.

Here are some more facts about FiV, I hope you will still consider adopting me!

  • 1. The Feline Immuno-deficiency Virus is a slow virus that affects a cat's immune system over a period of years.

  • 2. FIV is a cat-only disease and cannot be spread to humans or other non-felines.

  • 3. FIV cats most often live long, healthy, and relatively normal lives with no symptoms at all.

  • 4. FIV is not easily passed between cats. It cannot be spread casually - like in litter boxes, water and food bowls, or when snuggling and playing. It is rarely spread from a mother to her kittens.

  • 5. The virus can be spread through blood transfusions, badly infected gums, or serious, penetrating bite wounds. (Bite wounds of this kind are extremely rare, except in free-roaming, unneutered tomcats.)

  • 6. A neutered cat, in a home, is extremely unlikely to infect other cats, if properly introduced.

  • 7. Many vets are not educated about FIV since the virus was only discovered 15 years ago.

  • 8. FIV-positive cats should be kept as healthy as possible. Keep them indoors and free from stress, feed them a high-quality diet, keep and treat any secondary problems as soon as they arise.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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