Blue is FIV+
What you should know about FIV:
Blue is a gorgeous large neutered boy who was returned to the local county shelter after he became sick with a URI (kitty cold). WSKR took him in and worked to get him healthy again. In the time he has been with us he has been a quiet but very sweet and mellow boy. We discovered he was FIV+ during routine testing. This is an immune deficiency disorder in cats, cannot be transmitted to other species and can only be transmitted to other cats only via deep bite wounds or blood transfer.

Because of his special needs status, Blue's adoption fee is reduced to $85 and , this helps covers the expense of getting our rescued kitties prepared for adoption (spay/neuter surgery, rabies vaccines, FVRCP vaccines, microchips and screening for FeLV/FIV). In Blue's case his FELV/FIV testing result was Neg for FeLV and Pos for FIV.
He is completely non-aggressive with other cats or people, it is very unlikely that he would ever bite another cat and transfer the virus, however, he will be considered a special needs adoption with a reduced adoption fee of $90. Please contact us today to find out more about adopting Blue.
