Featured FIV+ Furkid: Tuxie Man

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.

Each week I will be featuring Furkids’ FIV-positive kitties who are available for adoption. This week’s featured cat is Tuxie Man - a four-year old male black and white tuxedo kitty. Here is Tuxie Man’s description from the Furkids’ website:

I think my name sums up the way I look- Tuxie Man. I am a cuddly guy who enjoys attention from humans. Feel free to hold me and love on me all you want; I like it. I am very laid back and get along great with other cats. I'm such a sweetheart that everyone thinks I would do very well with kids, too. I hope my new home has lots of running water faucets because I love to play with and drink from them. Apparently I am pretty smart as well, I have figured out how to open kitty cages from the inside. I guess not all kitties are this clever. Well that just about sums me up. My only request is for you to send in your application to adopt me so I can live in your home and share all of this love and intelligence with you.
