Meow! My name is Petey
|Breed:||Domestic Shorthair||Color:||Black & White Or Tuxedo||Age:||Adult|
I am already neutered, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, and good with cats.
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."
Rescue Group Info...
HemoSolutions is an animal blood bank located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. We have an all volunteer canine blood donation program. In addition, we have a feline colony, which consists of over 50 cats. They are adopted from local animal shelters, only when they are on the list to be euthanized. They are given a second chance through HemoSolutions and donate blood once every 3-4 weeks during their 18 month stay with us. After that 18 month stay, they are retired from the blood donor program and placed up for adoption. They currently live happily in various large rooms with windows, cat toys, horizontal spaces and lots of love. They are all very well socialized and will make a great addition to a family looking to adopt.
The cats are kept at our cattery in Calhan, Colorado. We can bring any cat that someone is interested in adopting to our main facility located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. We ask that potential adoptive families make an appointment prior to a visit.
We require anyone that is interested in adopting one of our cats to fill out a short 2 page application.
