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 Pixie - a ten-year old female brown tabby cat. Here is Pixie’s description from the Furkids’ website:

Pixie is a pretty tabby girl with mesmerizing green eyes. They seem to be the color of a pure emerald and they sparkle even more than that! Pixie has been a Furkid for quite a while now and is a senior girl. She continues to learn how to love and be loved.

The volunteers at Furkids enjoy the way she dances around- approaching you and then shimmying away. She wants to be scratched, but she’s still a little shy and reserved. She’s getting better every day, and it is evident that she really wants to bond with someone! She may need a little extra TLC to help her completely trust people.

Pixie has stomatitis (which is an inflammation in her gums) and everything that can be, has been done to help with this condition. Pixie will need a loving and understanding human in her life. Could it be you? If so, then apply to meet her today!
