Hello, I’m Moira
My favorite thing to do is Lounge around and watch everyone. I like to just chill!
What makes me special is I am a very sweet girl who just loves the company of her family. Also, I have FIV and will need to be an only cat.
I want my new owner to know I am very sweet despite spending the beginning of my life on the streets. I love people!
When I am feeling playful I like to…I don’t play a lot. When it is time to rest I sleep I like beds, soft rugs and couches
I am good with Cats, Kids, Dogs
By nature I am…Cuddly, Lazy, Loud, Affectionate.
Thank you so much for your interest in giving Moira forever home! Before we take the next steps with your meet and greet we did want to take a moment to discuss Moria’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 Moira 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 Moira to be seen. FIV kitties are amazing and typically live full lives. Moira is a very healthy kitty who will make an amazing pet for a special family.
