🐾 Meet Salem 🖤

Salem’s journey began on a  farm, but she’s proven to be a true survivor. This sweet black kitten may be small, but she’s mighty in spirit. Salem’s had her share of health challenges, being FIV positive and undergoing a large hernia repair when she was spayed, but that hasn’t dimmed her determination one bit.

Salem is a gentle soul with a heart full of love. She’s more on the mellow side, and her purr is a constant reminder of her contentment. What’s truly heartwarming is her love the dog at her foster home – she adores her canine companion and can often be found cuddled up with them. A meet and greet with her potential adopter’s dog or dogs will let us know how if that’s how she feels about all dogs.

Despite her health hurdles, Salem keeps up with her sisters and has a boundless reserve of energy for playtime. She’s a testament to resilience and the power of a loving heart.

If you’re looking for a furry friend who will shower you with affection, look no further than Salem. Give this brave little kitten a chance to shine in your loving home, and you’ll be rewarded with a lifetime of purrs, cuddles, and unforgettable moments. 🐱🏡❤️

She will need to be in a home with no children under the age of six.

Salem is currently in a foster home so contact us to meet this sweet kitten.


FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) is an important topic for potential cat adopters to understand. 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.
