FIV cat looking to live a long life!

The first words that you think of when you see Laurel are “pretty” or “affectionate”, not “sick”. She isn’t ill, but Laurel has Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). Cats with FIV can eventually develop feline AIDS, but many FIV positive cats live healthy for many years without symptoms and some never show any. Right now, Laurel is simply carrying the virus and is not symptomatic. She is energetic, playful and loves to get attention! 

Like the other animals in our care, WHS is looking to give Laurel the best life possible. Her new parent won’t need to treat her any differently than any other cat. He or she would just need to monitor her health and take her to the vet if she seems tired or blue. She’ll need to be an only cat because there is a chance that she could pass the virus along to another kitty, but other than that she will be an ideal family pet.

The WHS staff that has been caring for her believes there is a special home out there for Laurel, a home willing to care for her regardless of her condition. A family that believes she deserves a good life, no matter how many obstacles she has to overcome. If you think that you could be that special pet parent, please come down to the shelter on New York Avenue and meet Laurel?we promise she’ll steal your heart!
