We received an email from one of our adopters (adopted Dakota and Daisy last year). This great couple is fostering for another rescue group -- they live in Charlotte so fostering for us doesn't make sense. We wish they lived closer and could foster for us, but they can foster and help kitties close to them.
One of the cats, Wendell, from the local rescue has FIV and keeps being passed over for adoption so they thought about fostering him. They have done research, but reading our blog about FIV put them more at ease so they decided to go ahead and foster him. Well, they let me know today they will be adopting him. Michelle and Jeff -- YAY and thank you for opening your homes and hearts to an FIV positive cat.
Read more about FIV in this article from Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. http://www.bestfriends.org/theanimals/petcare/cats_fiv.cfm
If you're interested in adopting an absolutely fantastic cat, who just happens to be FIV positive, please consider Jasper -- or Big Bear as his foster mom calls him. What a total lovebug.
