FIV-positive cats deserve forever homes and Furkids in metro Atlanta is helping make that a reality by waiving all adoption fees for their FIV-positive kitties and offering free medical care for one year. Click here for more information on this special promotion.

FIV stands for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus - it is a virus that affects a cat’s immune system. FIV weakens the immune system making them more vulnerable to other infections. However, FIV-positive cats can live safely with FIV-negative cats.

Each week I will be featuring Furkids’ FIV-positive kitties who are available for adoption. This week’s featured cat is Baxter - a seven-year old male brown tabby kitty. Here is Baxter’s description from the Furkids’ website:

Baxter was rescued by a Furkids volunteer from Cobb County Animal Control. He is a brown tabby guy who is looking to be the king of his castle. Baxter is what you would call an Alpha cat, so he will need to be the only cat in his new home. He has a unique look with his large head and a little less than proportionate smaller body. But he knows he is a tough cookie.

Baxter would be happy in a home where he can watch nature from the top of a cat tree near a window. When this fellow goes into 'love mode', he may just climb on top of the sofa and nuzzle his head into your neck with all the affection he can. He does want to let you know that he is FIV+ but that is not going to stop him from living a great life. FIV+ kitties can live long and healthy lives with just a little extra care. If you would like to give this guy his own palace, then apply to meet Baxter today.
