Introducing Wednesday, the little tuxedo charmer born into a tough situation on a farm. Despite her challenging start in life, Wednesday is a shining example of resilience and curiosity.
This spirited female kitten is the definition of sociable. Whenever the door opens, she’s the first to bound over, her purring engine running at full throttle. Wednesday craves affection and will eagerly nuzzle her way into your heart. Her curiosity knows no bounds, and she’s always on a mission to explore and uncover the mysteries of the world around her.
However, Wednesday carries a special badge of courage. She’s FIV positive, but that doesn’t diminish her zest for life or her capacity to love. In fact, it only makes her more deserving of a forever home where she can be cherished and cared for.
Are you ready to open your heart and home to Wednesday? She’s not just a kitten; she’s a reminder that even in the face of adversity, love and happiness can thrive. Give Wednesday the chance she deserves, and you’ll be rewarded with a lifetime of affection and companionship.
Wednesday will need to be in a home with no children under the age of six.
She is currently in a foster home so contact us to meet this sweet girl.
FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) is an important topic for potential cat adopters to understand. While we primarily focus on cat adoption, it’s crucial to note that FIV is more common in male outdoor cats. If you’re considering adopting a cat, here’s what you need to know about FIV:
1. **What is FIV?**
Feline Immunodeficiency Virus is similar to HIV in humans but affects only cats. It weakens a cat’s immune system over time, making them more susceptible to certain infections.
2. **How is it transmitted?**
FIV is usually spread through bite wounds, primarily during aggressive fights between cats. It is not easily transmitted through casual contact, such as grooming or sharing food bowls.
3. **FIV-positive cats can live fulfilling lives:** Cats with FIV can lead healthy, happy lives for many years. They require regular vet check-ups and a safe, indoor environment to minimize the risk of infection.
4. **Adopting an FIV-positive cat:**
– Consider your household: If you have other cats, it’s essential to ensure they are compatible or keep them separated.
– Consult with a veterinarian: Discuss the care and specific needs of an FIV-positive cat.
– Indoor-only life: FIV-positive cats should be kept indoors to reduce exposure to potential infections.
5. **Benefits of adopting an FIV-positive cat:**
– These cats are often overlooked, so you’re giving a loving home to a cat that might otherwise be euthanized.
– They can form strong bonds with their owners and be incredibly affectionate.
6. **Potential challenges:**
– Regular veterinary care is essential.
– Be prepared for occasional health issues, though many FIV-positive cats remain healthy for years.
7. **Educate yourself:** Research and learn more about FIV to provide the best care for your future furry friend.
Remember, adopting any cat, whether FIV-positive or not, is a rewarding experience. It’s essential to consider your lifestyle and the needs of your other pets when making this decision.
