Petey was originally adopted from the Humane Society to be part of our Second Chance Feline Blood Donation Program. His blood was tested to make sure that he was healthy to donate. Unfortunately, he has returned positive for FIV (Feline immunodeficiency virus). He needs to be adopted to a very special house where he is the only cat in the household (as to not spread the disease to another cat in the house). He could also be adopted to a family that already has a FIV positive cat in the house. He must be kept strictly indoors as to not spread FIV to outdoor cats.
He is currently a healthy sweet cat that needs a forever home to love and take care of him. He would prefer a comfy lap over a cat bed any day! Come by and visit with Petey TODAY!
"It's an important point to make that FIV in cats is not a death sentence. Cats with FIV do not require ongoing medication. In fact, while cats with FIV have a damaged immune system and might be more prone to illness, with proactive veterinary care most cats with FIV live long lives and often suffer no more problems than FIV-free cats. Another important point is that there isn't a single known case of FIV in cats transmitted to people. It doesn't happen."
