Featured FIV+ Furkid: Mika

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 Mika - a three-year old female domestic short hair kitty. Here is a message that she posted on the Furkids’ FIV House Facebook page recently:

Hello, my name is Mika and I am a sweet and loving tabico-colored girl. That means I am calico with tabby markings and I’ve heard people say that my coat is striking. I was rescued from Animal Control after nursing not only my babies, but another two litters. I was very tired when Furkids saved me as you can imagine. My foster home gave me a place to relax and build my strength back up. Now that all of the babies have gone on to their forever homes, it is my turn. I love people so much and cannot wait until I find my purr-fect match. I will let you know that I am FIV+, but I am healthy and it will not require much extra care. I am a quiet natured girl who won’t cause any trouble and would be a wonderful addition to your home. Please apply to adopt me today!
