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.

During this special promotion I will be featuring Furkids’ FIV-positive kitties who are available for adoption. Today’s featured cat is Larry – an eight-year old male orange and white domestic short hair kitty. Here is a message from Larry that he posted recently on the Furkids’ Facebook page:

I have a secret to tell, but you will have to watch my video to know it. Around here, I am known as Larry the lover boy. I am very thankful to Furkids because I am too wonderful of a cat to be stuck in animal control. I did test positive for FIV, but I still plan to live a long and healthy life. I have a great coat of white and orange, complete with an orange tail. I enjoy the companionship of humans so feel free to give me loads of attention. I really love to give my kitty affection in return. If you’ve thought of giving a home to an FIV+ kitty, then I think I would be the purrrfect choice. Apply to meet me today!
