Sweet little Mama cat! Came from Quincy, il as she had just had 4 kittens and her owner passed away. Given the trauma she's been through, she remained a sweet trusting cat. So much that when another momma cat got hit by a car she took in 5 more babies and treated them like her own. I cant say enough about her sweet disposition. Shes not been cuddly, but that would be a typical behavior of mama cats. She has a lot of competition here and I can tell she longs to be someone's special pet. Shes been such a trooper I want the very best for her. Apply now! Available only at TLC Fosters NP https://www.petstablished.com/adoption_form/2795/generic

Apply today! https://www.petstablished.com/adoption_form/2795/generic Coco is a regal eight-year-old declawed female long hair. She has stunning blue eyes and a silvery "mane" around her face that suggest some Siamese ancestory. Her general demeanor is quiet, but she can be vocal (and opnionated!) when she wants to be. She is quietly curious of houseguests, but craves human company with people she trusts. Although she is declawed, Coco tries her best to realize her hunter lineage by acrobatically chasing string, foil, and anything that crunches. She apparently has some magpie tendencies too - she gently collects my jewelery and brings it to her crate to sit with. We often catch her dragging her toys around the house to her spot under the table, including huge wand-and-string toys that trail comically behind her. One of her favorite things to do is to snuggle next to her person for cuddles and brushes. She'll fall asleep there too if you let her! Coco has a double coat, so she is extremely soft and silky, and she *loves* it when you scratch that special spot behind her ears. Coco would be well placed in a calm home with no other animals or young children. She would be a good companion for adults or mature children who allow her to visit them on her own terms.

Eric, this gorgeous and sweet boy is a special needs. He is fiv positive. Eric is perfectly healthy and has no real special need . Please consider taking Eric into your home and loving him. Fiv is not a death sentance and fiv cats can live with non-fiv cats for many, many years You can learn more about fiv below. Apply now! Available only at TLC Fosters NP https://www.petstablished.com/adoption_form/2795/generic FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus) is a widely misunderstood condition. Many people think that it’s easily spread, makes cats very sick, and that they have a lower life expectancy, so they are not often adopted. This is far from the truth! When a cat tests positive for FIV, it means they either carry the virus or have been vaccinated for it at some point (which causes them to test positive for the disease, which is why this vaccination isn’t recommended, among other reasons). FIV is not spread through casual contact such as shared food/water/litter, mutual grooming, or playing. It is most commonly spread through deep, vicious bite wounds typically inflicted by intact toms fighting on the streets over food, females, or territory. If a cat has been spayed or neutered, they are unlikely to fight in this manner, and if the population is stable (no serious fighting), FIV+ cats can live with non-infected cats. (It was previously thought that FIV+ pregnant queens could pass the virus to their kittens, but this has since been disproved according to one study. Kittens with an FIV+ mother may test positive for up to 6 months, however, due to the presence of maternal antibodies, which dissipate over time). FIV+ cats can live as long and healthy a life as non-infected cats. This doesn’t mean they will never become ill; they are, after all immunocompromised, so illnesses can be easier to catch and harder to fight off. They have the same needs as any other cat: high quality nutrition, a clean, stress-free, strictly indoor environment, regular veterinary visits (two times per year), and lots of love. If they should become ill, they are generally treated earlier, longer, and more aggressively than non-immunocompromised cats (meaning they need to see the vet at the very first sign of illness and may be on a stronger medication or on medication for a longer period of time).
