Petfinder recommends that you should always take reasonable security steps before making online payments.
Alf is calm and gentle, and a bit slow to warm up to new faces. He is still learning how to play and enjoys his favorite wand toy. He is the purrfect little companion and is sure to open up with the help of a patient and loving adopter. When he arrived to Ten Lives he had some skin and ear issues, but he was just a fantastic patient and accepted a brushing, ear medication and even a bubble bath with minimal reluctance (although we are sure he has no desire to have more baths!) He is now on the mend and ready to find his purrfect home.
Alf gets along great with other kitties, or can be adopted as your one and only feline. Alf is FIV+, but nothing is stopping this sweet boy from living his best life. If Alf could be the one for you, please fill out an application today!
All over the country cats with FIV are often euthanized or considered not adoptable even though most FIV+ cats go on to live normal, healthy lives. TLCR believes that education is key to helping FIV+ cats find the loving adoptive homes that they deserve. Please read below and do not hesitate to reach out with any questions! e: email@example.com
FIV is transmitted through deep bite wounds typically seen in male cats who are not neutered, living outside, and fighting over territory or resources.
FIV does NOT spread through grooming, playing, sharing bowls, or litter boxes.
Science proves that FIV+ cats live just as long as their negative counterparts with proper care.
FIV is NOT the same as feline leukemia or human HIV.
Humans or dogs can NOT contract FIV.
Cats who test positive for FIV need the same basic care as cats who test negative. Yearly check-ups at the vet, to live indoors, and be fed good quality food.
FIV+ cats shouldn't live with cats who are known carriers of feline herpes virus as they are moresusceptible to infections.

If the cat or kitten is no longer listed in the drop-down menu of the application then he/she is no longer available for adoption and we are no longer accepting applications. Applications submitted for cats or kittens no longer available will not be reviewed.
