Hi there, I’m Curds!
My favorite thing to do is Cuddle! I am the cuddles baby you will ever meet. I like to play too, but as soon as I’m picked up, that is all forgotten.
What makes me special is I was pulled from a hoarder with my mom and brother when I was two weeks old. I just love attention and snuggles. I am special needs but I don’t know it!
I want my new owner to know When I was 6 weeks old I got sick. The vets aren’t sure what happened but I began showing a lot of neurological issues. Mostly my walking. My foster mom calls me a drunken sailor! I think its a fair assessment. I still do all the things my brother can do, I’m just slower.
When I am feeling playful I like to…I love to run, chase my brother, balls, bells, strings, and crinkly toys. My ability to climb has diminished significantly so I’ll need a low cat tree. I still think I can jump and land on my feet. I definitely can NOT! When it is time to rest I sleep I like a blanket or the cat tree but my favorite spot is in my foster families arms. My foster mom says I’m magic. As soon as I am picked up and cradled like a baby, my eyes instantly close and I’m sound asleep.
I am good with Cats, Kids and I have no experience around dogs
By nature I am… Energetic, Cuddly, Playful, Social, Affectionate, Curious, I like to be held.
Thank you so much for your interest in giving Curds a forever home! Before we take the next steps with your meet and greet we did want to take a moment to discuss Curds medical condition of FIV.
FIV stands for feline immunodeficiency virus. FIV typically causes a weakening of the cat’s immune system. It is the same class of virus as HIV (a lentivirus); however, only cats can get FIV. People and dogs cannot. FIV can only be transmitted via a deep bite wound and is not transmitted via normal contact. Cats with FIV can live normal and happy lives in households with other Non-FIV cats. Cats who are infected with FIV may not show symptoms until years after the initial infection occurred. Although the virus is slow-acting, a cat’s immune system is severely weakened once the disease takes hold. This makes the cat susceptible to various secondary infections.
Infected cats who receive supportive medical care and are kept in a stress-free, indoor environment can live relatively comfortable lives for years before the disease reaches its chronic stages.
If you do choose to adopt Curds it will be important to have a working relationship with a vet (as a rescue, we use San Tan Animal Hospital) and if any signs of illness start to show it will be important to make sure that you call your vet and/or take Curd to be seen. FIV kitties are amazing and typically live full lives. Curds is a very healthy kitty who will make an amazing pet for a special family.
