Domestic Short Hair - White
I was found as a stray in Camden and brought to the shelter on 7/16. I am an all white cat about 4 or 5 years old. I tested positive for FIV but don't worry, I am perfectly healthy. I will tell you a little bit about FIV. FIV stands for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. It progresses very slowly, gradually affecting a cat's immune system. It is passed through blood transfusions and through serious, penetrating bite wounds. YOU can't get FIV from a cat. In fact, the only thing about FIV that you can catch is a bad case of the rumors.
As long as cats with FIV are not exposed to diseases that their immune system can't handle, they can live perfectly normal lives. And they can only pass the virus on to other cats through a serious, penetrating bite wound. So unless your cats at home routinely tear each other to pieces, it's not a problem. (And if your cats are tearing each other up, that's probably a bigger problem!)
Therefore, PLEASE do not pass by me because I am FIV. I am a sweet cat that is looking for a good home like all the rest of my friends here at the shelter!

The adoption fee includes spay/neuter, age-appropriate vaccinations, FIV/FeLV test, microchip, initial deworming treatment and pet medical insurance.
