Hi, future family! I came to the MCSPCA from Ocean County Animal Facility in Toms River. Sadly, many shelters euthanize FIV+ cats because they are likelier to get sick when exposed to germs. Like with children at school, illnesses such as head colds can circulate easily in a shelter with so many fellow felines hanging around. Since many shelters have limited resources to care for so many animals (sick or otherwise), they have no choice but to euthanize the sickest ones. Unfortunately, FIV+ kitties are always at the top of the list.
Luckily for me, the MCSPCA does NOT euthanize FIV+ kitties! They offered to take me in and find me a home. Isn’t that great? I am a mellow little love bug looking for a home to get lots of affection and play in.
I can’t tell you if I’ve been around other cats before, but I would probably be fine with someone nice and relaxed like me. I’d be happy having you all myself too! Would you like to bring home your new best friend?
