Simba's Story...
SImba is a handsome 2-3 year old fellow who was abandoned at a Dinwiddie barn then came up to the house to say hello! We got him vetted and discovered he is positive for feline AIDS, referred to as FIV. Read information below about feline AIDS -- healthy Simba should live a perfectly long life now that he doesn't have to constantly search for food and shelter! Simba is so thankful he's safe now; he's pretty lazy and LOVES food. He would be such a good companion for someone who wants a gentle, calm loving companion.He's a big, hefty boy who has those giant, fluffy "tomcat" cheeks, but that life is behind him. He needs a deep litter box because he does like kicking sand! Please consider giving this nice boy a loving home as an only cat.

Feline AIDS is not a death sentence. For an indoor family pet, there's no reason the cat wouldn't live a normal life unshortened by this disease. FIV can only be transmitted to other cats via bite; it cannot be transmitted to people or other animals. Simba requires no medications or special treatment, just a loving home with food, water, warm bed and the good life of a housecat!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

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

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