Hi, there! I originally came to the MCSPCA from another shelter back in 2019. I’ve been in a couple homes since, but they weren’t the right fit, so I’m back hoping the third time’s the charm.
I’m a very sweet girl who likes being gently petted and will just as tenderly rub up against you. I’ve come out of my shell a lot since I first got here, but I will still time to get used to a new home. A quiet, smaller, adults-only home will be best for me. If you don’t mind a kitty who will come to you for attention and then do her own thing, I’m the girl for you.
I’ve gotten along well with cats in gazebos before, so I’m happy to get to know an equally laidback kitty at home. I definitely wouldn’t mind being the center of attention as your one and only gal either. Don’t miss out on bringing a lovely little lady home with you!
Another reason I’m lucky to be at the Monmouth County SPCA because they adopt out lots of FIV+ kitties, and many shelters unfortunately euthanize them.
FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) means when exposed to kitty germs, FIV+ cats are more susceptible to catching something than a cat without. With limited resources to care for so many animals (sick or otherwise), many shelters have no choice but to euthanize those likeliest to get sick, and FIV+ cats are always at the top of the list.
Studies have shown FIV+ kitties can live just as happy, healthy and long of a life as a cat without FIV. A positive FIV status becomes a problem with outdoor cats that must fend for themselves and fight over limited resources. When an FIV+ kitty is kept indoors, fed good food, given lots of love, and taken for regular vet visits, their lifespan and quality of life can be the same as a cat without FIV.
