Kitty Cage Needed
- I started out fostering 4 newborn baby kittens 5 weeks ago. All
have passed away except for one named Domino. After his brother
passed away on Sunday, I had him feleuk/fiv tested and he is
unfortunately fiv positive so we now know why the others didn't make
Domino seems very healthy right now. He was introduced to Science
Diet wet food this week and loves it. He has a healthy appetite and
is starting to play. It's amazing to see this little guy go from
being so dependent on me for everything to a little guy with a
personality. He is so loving and just purrs nonstop.
The Humane Society is trying to decide what to do with him because
of his fiv status (I'm fostering Domino for them). I'm really
hoping they don't decide to euthanize him. I would adopt him in a
heartbeat, but I don't want my cat to contract this awful disease.
That just would not be fair to him. Domino's only hope is to find a
home and be the only cat there. I want to buy him some time so I'm
looking for one of those tall kitty cages that has the shelves so he
has room to grow. This would give him lots of room to grow without
being cramped. I do take him out of the kennel he's in now and
interact with him quite frequently, but I do work full time and feel
this would be ideal for him.
If anybody has one of these kitty cages that they no longer need,
please consider donating it towards Domino's care.
Thank's so much
- FIV is NOT an 'awful disease' but misconceptions of it have caused the unneeded deaths of many cats. Please research it, if you email me I can send you a wonderful article on the myths connected with it. I'm so sorry for the loss of the kittens, but their FIV+ status by itself was probably not the cause of their deaths. Thanks.
- please check out the link. FIV is NOT a death sentence for any cat.
There is an Indian legend which says: "When a human dies there is a bridge they must cross to enter into Heaven. At the head of that bridge waits every animal that human encountered during their lifetime. The animals, based on what they know of this person, decide which humans may cross the bridge...and which are turned away."
