Introducing…Miss Muffett!

My favorite thing to do is I love to play with my kids, carry around my doll and stalk the other kitties. I love to twist around your legs to get pets!

What makes me special is I am an old bird. I was brought into the county shelter with my 2 week old babies after I was found in a hoarding situation. I was tired, very week and had major dental disease. (I had 14 teeth pulled!) Being a senior kitty with newborns isn’t easy!

I want my new owner to know I am FIV positive, but otherwise in very good health. Please read the information below on FIV.

I am extremely sweet! I love cuddles, brushing and pets. I may be old but I play like a kid. I am picky about the other cats I want around me. Some I love, others better run. I’ll need an adjustment period in my new home with other kitties. I am very vocal. You will hear me when I need attention.

When I am feeling playful I like to…I have a clown doll that I love to carry around. I also like crinkly toys, balls, bells, string…and my playful little boys! When it is time to rest I sleep I like to sleep on the couch in in a cat tree.

I am good with Kids and I have no experience around dogs, cats

By nature I am… Energetic, Cuddly, Playful, Social, Loud, Affectionate.

Thank you so much for your interest in giving Miss Muffett a forever home! Before we take the next steps with your meet and greet we did want to take a moment to discuss Miss Muffett’s 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 Miss Muffett 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 Miss Muffett to be seen. FIV kitties are amazing and typically live full lives. Miss Muffett is a very healthy kitty who will make an amazing pet for a special family.
