For National Adopt-a-Cat Month, it is important not to overlook the harder-to-adopt cats, including those with Feline Leukemia (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). These viruses cannot be spread to humans or other animals, but they can be spread to other cats, so cats with FeLV and FIV must be in a single-cat household. FeLV and FIV positive cats appear much like typical cats, since symptoms usually do not take effect until later in life, when the weakened state of their immune system puts them in danger of catching secondary diseases. Still, young cats can still romp and play just like any other cat, but they must be kept separate from other cats so that they do not spread the virus.
One such FeLV and FIV positive cat is Olive, a sweet, demure 2 year old cat who loves to be pet. Olive is currently at Save-a-Pet Animal Rescue and Adoption Center, and would prefer to be living out her kitty youth in a home that she can call her own. She would be thoroughly content as an only cat in your home, and would love to curl up with you in bed or on the sofa and make the most of her early years by chasing cat toys and snuggling with her owners, and possible a canine brother or sister.
Olive is spayed, house-trained, and up-to-date with all of her routine shots. To inquire about adopting Olive or another cat, call Save-a-Pet at 631-473-6333.
