Dr Suess Day

Can't tell by looking
These cats are extra special
And need no extra care
FIV+ cats need homes and love too

he is about 2 years old - and check out those front feet

Stanley is the new guy
he is super sweet

Kevin Kyle
he is about 4 years old and very insistent on getting attention

Since Colony Cats opened it's FIV+ room for cats last fall, there have been 5 adoptions!! To encourage people to adopt, their adoption fee is $25 - such a deal. Fortunately more and more people are realizing that FIV is not a death sentence and these cats (unless they are aggressive toward other cats) can live with negative cats.

For more facts, check out this article on FIV in cats from Best Friends and an article on from our friend JaneA Kelley of Paws and Effects.

  1. Well,we sure hope that all four of you find that perfect home.How great that this place has a special room for the FIV cats.

  3. It's wonderful that more and more people are becoming educated about FIV+ cats! We hope all these cuties find their purrfect home soon!

  4. The needs of a special needs cat aren't always so special: love, attention, care, vigilance - the usual, really.

  5. FIV+ cats have gotten such a bad rap - I'm happy that Colony Cats is working to overcome that.

  6. We hope they find wonderful forever homes very soon!
