Meow! My name is Travis
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||White (Mostly)||Age:||Adult|
I am already neutered, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Travis was a stray in the city. When he was rescued he was dirty, smelly, and showed evidence of a hard life on the streets.
Now Travis is in a Stray Cat Blues foster home and has the chance to find a real home. He has been fully vetted, neutered, vaccinated. He is litterbox trained.
Travis is a big, solid boy. He friendly and a little feisty! Can Travis come home with you?
Travis tested negative for FeLV, but positive for FIV. FIV stands for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. FIV can suppress the immune system but most cats live very long and healthy lives with FIV. For more information on FIV our volunteers would be happy to discuss this condition with you. FIV is primarily spread through deep bite wounds. FIV is not spread by sharing litter boxes or food bowls. It is also not spread by cats cuddling or playing with each other (so FIV cats can in many cases live in homes with non-FIV cats). FIV cannot be spread to people or to non-cat pets such as dogs. FIV+ cats are sweet, funny, affectionate, and playful, just as any other cat!

Rescue Group Info...
Officially, Stray Cat Blues, Inc. is a no-kill, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization providing rescue and placement to stray, abandoned, and feral cats. Personally, SCB is a small group of dedicated volunteers who work tirelessly to find loving, life-long homes for cats. We are professional in our practices, but we are emotional on the subject of homeless cats, and the ways in which we humans can work to prevent this epidemic of strays.
Stray Cat Blues actively works to find permanent homes for the stray cats in our program. Our kittens and cats are exposed to the pet-loving public at our different adoption locations (see Come Meet our Pets section below) to facilitate adoptions and to provide visibility for our organization. Our cats can also be seen online at www.adoptapet.com.
Most of our cats offered for adoption are strays and their offspring that are rescued off the streets.
For those stray cats that are more wary of humans, especially feral cats, we can help humanely trap, sterilize and either return them if the area they live in is safe and they are being fed, or we house them and adopt them out as barn cats.
Thanks from the cats
and all of us at Stray Cat Blues!
