STUNNING, PLAYFUL BABY GIRL LOVES HER FELINE FRIENDS
Hello friends! My name is Hope. I was found as a pint-sized little kitten by a Maryland shelter where the staff recognized my loving nature and knew what a wonderful family I'd make after I received medical attention and some TLC.
I am the most stunning little beauty with silk long fur and fawn colored tabby markings. Wait until you see how lovely I am! I couldn't be happier here at KSC playing with my kitty friends. I love to play!
I can still be a bit shy when you first meet me. As soon as I realize that you intend to love and protect me, I won't be so shy. Right now I am not a fan of being picked up - I'm enjoying myself with all four paws planted firmly on the ground. This doesn't mean that I don't want to be near you or enjoy our time together. It just means that I like my paws in contact with the floor.
It seems that before I had human friends to protect me, I suffered a deep puncture wound from the bite of a cat infected with Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) and this virus was passed to me.
FIV stands for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus.
It is * not * human HIV.
Humans * cannot * catch FIV.
Dogs * cannot * catch FIV.
KSC has adopted out many FIV+ kitties who are now living happily as cherished family members.
FIV is spread from cat to cat by means of deep-puncture bite wounds - something that's not hard to imagine in a situation where cats have to struggle to get what they need to survive.
It means that at some point I may, or may not, develop a heightened susceptibility to the ailments that we all face regularly.
This is the "extra" that I ask of you in order to keep me healthy:
That's it. Wait, what? Yes, that's it. You'd do that for any cat you brought into your family, so I know you'll be able to do it for me.
Please come to meet me. My KSC friends will answer any questions you have about my FIV+ status. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for me, Hope!
See you soon!
