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 Zapata - a five-year old female silver tabby cat. Here is Zapata's description from the Furkids’ website:

Zapata is one of the sweetest and most friendly cats that you will ever meet. She was surrendered to Furkids by her former owner who was unable to take care of her. She is such a great girl who not only loves people, but does well with other cats. With her very even temperament, she would probably be just fine with kids, too. Zapata loves to be brushed, so she won't turn down a good grooming session, especially if it comes with lots of pets. She will also follow her new human friend around when she is longing for more attention. And she has a really cute identifying feature, she has fangs! Zapata did test positive for FIV, but that will not stop her from living a long and happy life. Apply to adopt this wonderful kitty today!
