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 M.C. - a six-year old domestic short hair orange tabby boy. Here is M.C.’s story that he posted on the Furkids’ FIV House Facebook page earlier this week:

M.C. has a special story to tell. He was rescued from animal control by the Furkids shelter manager. She chose him in honor of a beloved orange tabby kitty who was with Furkids a long time and passed away earlier in 2012. His name was Michael and he came from a terrible hoarding case. He didn't get a forever home other than the shelter before he passed away, but was doted on by many volunteers during his remaining time.

This brings us to M.C.'s name - the M is for Michael and the C is for Corleone. The shelter manager who pulled MC is a fan of the movie 'The Godfather', and Michael Corleone is the main character. M.C. was found to be FIV+ and was quite ill, but now he is thriving. He's strong and tough, but wants to show you how much love he has to give just as his namesake had. Please consider M.C. today to experience the gratification of adopting a special needs cat and to continue the legacy of Michael who didn't get that chance.
