My name is Edgar, and I am an extraordinary boy. I’m handsome, easygoing, loving, and affectionate; everyone who meets me falls in love with me. But there’s something else that’s special about me: I’m positive for both FIV and FeLV. Wait, please don’t stop reading! Please don’t look away! I might have health issues, but that doesn’t mean I’m unworthy of love or a home or a family. The right home for me is out there somewhere, I just know it!
FIV and FeLV might be scary diseases, but cats like me who have them can still enjoy a good life. Right now, I’m staying healthy and happy with nutritious food, probiotics, lysine supplements, and lots of love and attention. Humans cannot contract FIV or FeLV from cats, but I am contagious to other felines. For this reason, I will require either a single-cat household or a household where any other cats are also positive for both FIV and FeLV. I must also be a strictly indoor-only cat (as the HSCC recommends for all kitties).
The HSCC pulled me from Cobb County Animal Services because they thought they could give me a better chance at adoption, and even if I’m not adopted, I’ll still have a safe and comfortable home at the HSCC’s no-kill shelter. I am so much more than these diseases, and I have so much to offer! I’m loving, sweet, and such a pleasure to be around. I love playing with kitty toys, and I really enjoy being brushed. I’m also a big snuggler, and I look so forward to cuddle time with special human friends. I hope there’s a special person reading this who’s thinking, “I have room in my heart and my home for Edgar…” I promise, I’m worth it.
If you’re unfamiliar with my conditions and want to learn more, there are many good resources on the Internet. Two can be found at https://www.aspca.org/pet-care/cat-care/common-cat-diseases and https://www.petmd.com/cat/conditions/difference-between-felv-and-fiv; Google will certainly reveal many others!
If you think I would be a good fit for your home, please call 770-428-LOST (5678) to set up an appointment to come meet me! I have been neutered and microchipped and am up to date on all my vaccinations.
