Cheeks - ADOPTED's Info...

I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Cheeks - ADOPTED's Story...
Cheeks is 4 -6 YEAR OLD sweet cat who was turned into a high-kill shelter by his owner. He was lucky enough to be rescued from there by one of our volunteers. He is as sweet as can be. He wants nothing more then to be petted. He purrs and headbutts for attention. He will sit in your lap as long as he can. He doesn't like cats that are aggressive or go after him, but would probably do well with a submissive female cat. He likes dogs and plays with them. He also has a good appetite. He also has FIV. Which isn't anything horrible. It can't be passed from cat to dog or humans. To adopt him is $85.00, which includes his neuter, shots and microchip.

FIV Facts
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.

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.

Despite what many people think, cats with this condition can live perfectly long, happy, healthy lives.

This cat will be at our Petco adoption center on Rt 1 in Edison, south of Rt 287, in the Home Depot shopping center, open Sat & Sun, 11 to 4:30. For directions, go to our web site. CHECK BACK AT ARF.PETFINDER.COM ON SAT & SUN MORNINGS AT 8:30 TO SEE IF ANYTHING HAS CHANGED.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Cheeks - ADOPTED, a East Brunswick 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 East Brunswick, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in East Brunswick.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in East Brunswick 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 East Brunswick 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 East Brunswick paves the way for another one to be saved.
