Mickey and Sprinkles MUST be adopted together. There are NO exceptions. See Sprinkles here. [link to companion cat on the word "here"]
It used to be that a cat's diagnosed of FIP was the worst of all news, it was 100% fatal. A research microbiologist tried a medicine being developed to fight Ebola and found it cured FIP. Though it was not yet FDA approved cat lovers all around the world obtained this medicine and started saving the lives of their kitties.
Sprinkles and Mickey were two of the very early "FIP Warriors" who were cured with this medicine. When Sprinkles suddenly had one of her big blue eyes turn brown, the eye vet said it was FIP. A friend knew someone treating an FIP cat with a new drug. Once on the medicine, Sprinkles got better right away and has never looked back. When she was half thru her 3 month treatment we discovered Mickey had the same blood markers as she had. He was losing not gaining weight. He too recovered. This process was still so new that we were cautious and kept these bonded kitties under observation for over a year.
Now thousands of cats have been saved with this medicine and its use is becoming routine. I have heard that U C Davis is working to get FDA approval so they can bring it to market. I hope so.
These two kitties are a perfect bonded pair of opposites. Sprinkles is a smart, energetic, very interactive classic Siamese girl. Siamese kitties are called the extroverts of the feline world. She is a shoulder loving cat and is super affectionate.
Mickey is quieter -more of an artist and poet as is typical of Turkish Angoras. These gentle cats have delicate bones, fine silky easy care fur and almond shaped eyes. They are super sensitive, affectionate and devoted to their people. Unsure around new situations and strangers Mickey often looks to Sprinkles for reassurance. Sprinkles is the Curious playful explorer and Mickey is the Cautious sensitive lover. Perfect.
Both share a love of catnip and treats, bird feeders, windows, and climbing trees with a high lookouts. Both are smart, funny and entertaining. Both are very human oriented and love to give and receive pets. Both need attention from their humans and are not good choices for people who are out all day at work.
Mickey and Sprinkles are happy around other kitties. We don't know how they are with dogs. ( Well, we can guess: Sprinkles will immediately set up the rules and Mickey will watch from the top of the climbing tree.) They would be fine with respectful older children.
Some family will be so lucky to have their entertaining and loyal companionship.
Mickey is neutered, vaccinated, FELV tested, dewormed, microchipped, eats wet and dry food, and is litterbox perfect.
He is fostered by Harriet in Santa Cruz.
Purebreds Plus Cat Rescue is dedicated to matching exceptional cats with qualified adopters who will cherish their pet and create an ideal forever home.
If you believe you are the perfect adopter for Mickey (and Sprinkles) please tell us why in the comments section of our Adoption Application, and contact Harriet at firstname.lastname@example.org If you are unable to reach Harriet please email us at email@example.com.
NOTE: We prefer families with children bring them to the adoption appointment. Why? This allows interaction between the children and the cat. This helps ensure they will be a good fit for each other. A mismatch between a child and a cat is not in anyone's best interests!
Purebreds Plus cat Rescue (purebredsplus.org), serving Northern California, the San Francisco Bay Area, Oregon, and Northern Nevada, is dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of purebred cats, kittens and other exceptional felines. We are a 501 (c)3 non-profit rescue group. Most of our beautiful felines come from Northern California Animal Shelters. One of our goals is to keep purebred cats from ever ending up in a shelter. We are happy to help you if you need to rehome your purebred cat. Often, we can offer advice if your cat is having behavioral problems, and you may end up keeping the cat. We do NOT ship cats. We will place cats out of area but you must arrange to come and meet your new friend in person.
