Julia is a precious kitty who is probably around 2 or 3 years old. Julia came to us from Kentucky when she found herself on the euthanasia list after just giving birth in the shelter. During her spay and routine exam it was found that she tests positive for the FIV antibody. This is not a "death sentence". In fact, many vets don't consider it something to be concerned over. FIV can be passed to cats through mating (most likely how Julia got it), fighting (deep puncture wounds), and to kittens from their mother. It can cause a weakened immune system, however most cats with FIV live a normal life span and generally fall victim to normal ailments such as cancer and other geriatric diseases. Julia's life in Kentucky was very rough. She lived on the streets and some horrible person cut her tail off. At some point she ended up in the shelter pregnant and facing euthanasia. She delivered three healthy babies and we were able to get her and her babies on a transport the day after. Unfortunately, she has a label as "FIV Positive" which has caused her to have some trouble in finding her new home. Add to that the fact she is learning to trust people again after having been a victim of animal cruelty. Julia is looking for a calm household. Other cats and dogs are fine. She does well with cats and she finds herself a place to be comfortable if she is overwhelmed by the dogs or kids. Won't you find it in your heart to give this girl the home she deserves?
