BOB's Pet of the Week
Misty is BOB's Pet of the Week. He (yes, Misty is a boy) came to the shelter in February when his owner passed away. This handsome, 4 year old, boy misses being part of a family.
Misty has tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), which is similar to Human Immunodeficiency or HIV. These viruses are species specific, meaning FIV cannot be transferred from cats to humans.
There is no treatment for FIV, therefore, once a cat has contracted the virus, they will be a carrier for the remainder of their life. FIV causes white blood cell count to decline and causes an impairment in the cats immune system. Many cats that are FIV positive, can live a long and happy life. Since Misty is FIV positive, he is best to be an only cat or live with a cat/cats who are also FIV positive.
If you'd like more information on Misty and FIV, our Animal Care team would be more than happy to discuss it with you.
Misty is a loving kitty and we truly want to see him adopted into a home that can handle his condition.
