Furkids

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 Ozzy – a five-year old male short haired brown tabby. Here is Ozzy’s description from the Furkids’ website:

Hello world, my name is Ozzy. I am a handsome, big brown tabby boy with lots of love to give. I was found by a Furkids volunteer when a neighbor posted a sign that they had found a lost cat (that would be me). The neighbor couldn’t keep me because he has a disabled child to take care of; so I had to spend my days out in the cold and my nights in a garage, but at least I was safe. Luckily this volunteer checked on me and vowed to help me find a warm place to live. That’s how I ended up at Furkids and I am so glad I did.

Even though I’ve had a rough time of it, I am an amazingly loving boy. I did test positive for FIV, but that is nothing to fear. There’s no reason I won’t have a normal life in a loving home. If you would like to have a lover boy to warm your bed at night, then look no further! Apply today and I will be your permanent electric blanket.
