FIV+ Cats: Positively Adoptable!

FIV-positive-image-horizontal

BAA loves all of the FIV+ kitties in our care — and we know you will, too! There is a false notion that cats who test positive for feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV+) require special care — but they are no more demanding than your average kitty. FIV+ cats do have a weakened immune system, which means they should stay inside, be fed a high-quality diet, and get routine vet checkups – as all cats should.

They can safely live with non-infected cats as long as the kitties are spayed/neutered and don’t fight (FIV is only transmitted through sex or deep bite wounds, so hissing or minor spats are nothing to worry about).  In other words, FIV+ kitties do not need special treatment, and they make wonderful companions. They are Positively Adoptable!

Read more about FIV+ cats at here, and please email BrooklynAnimalAction@gmail.com to find out which FIV+ cats might be a great fit for you!


Charlie the True New Yorker!

charlie1 charlie2

Charlie is a true survivor. Having lived on the streets of Brooklyn for almost a year, you might think he has a bit of an edge to him, but in fact quite the opposite is true. When he was first placed with his foster he was a bit tentative, but now after spending a year getting used to having crazy humans around all the time he is very social and loves to snuggle. Even just being nearby makes him purr. He loves greet you at the door when you come home each day and he can’t wait to be scooped up for some cuddles. Although he’s very relaxed he loves to have a good time as well and will play with you and his toys for hours! A catnip mat and little orange toy fish are two of his very favorites. Charlie is also quite happy to spend his days sitting in the window watching people and cars pass by and admiring the view. He is definitely a New Yorker at heart. See his full listing here!

Charlie is a healthy, well-mannered (literally will not eat food that isn’t placed in his dish) 2-year-old boy who is neutered and up to date with all his vaccines and negative for FELV. Charlie did test positive for FIV which only means he has a weakened immune system. Healthy FIV+ cats have the same needs and life expectancy as any other kitty and require no special medication or care.

If you would like to book a visit to see Charlie the lovebug, please contact Donna at straycatstrutnyc@gmail.com.


Violet the Cat Comedian!

Meet Violet, a stunning and petite heart-stealer! She is a bundle of playful energy, turning any ordinary item around the house into a toy for her entertainment – and yours too! Whether it’s watching her excitedly chase a laser pointer, play a game of soccer with a vitamin bottle that fell to the floor, or fight a trickle of water from the sink, you’ll fall in love with that mischievous glint in her eyes and be endlessly amused by her antics. See more videos of Violet in action at these links: http://youtu.be/gmFNFYkDfKk and http://youtu.be/aKTfkKjJndE.

This precious and precocious kitty was found out on the street in Marine Park, Brooklyn and is a little shy with people. Even so, she is a total sweetheart who is content to curl up and “make biscuits” to her heart’s content while lying around with you.

Violet has been spayed is up-to-date on her shots, and tested FeLV- and FIV+ (which simply means she needs to live indoors and be on a healthy diet). She will be a great addition to your family and is just waiting for the right home. See Violet’s full listing here.

To meet beautiful Violet, please contact Claire at catskittensnyc@gmail.com or call eves/weekends at 718-455-5711.


Beautiful Blackie!

148244827

Meet Blackie, one of the coolest and most relaxed cats in the world. He’s got a gorgeous black coat with an adorable white-tipped tail, but that’s only the tip of the iceberg. He’s incredibly loving and interactive with people — he likes to rub against your legs, and will head butt your hand for extra attention. He’s also very vocal and will communicate with you when you talk to him. It’s hard to believe that Blackie was out on the street until he was rescued recently, because he absolutely loves human companionship and blossoms around people.

In addition to loving his people, this guy seriously loves lounging on a soft comfy bed all his own with a snuggly kitty blankie. He also loves his toys — some of his favorites are cat dancers, stuffed mice, and rolling balls. It will warm your heart this cold winter to watch him and all his playfulness, and then get rewarded with snuggles and purrs.

Blackie is up-to-date on all his shots, has been neutered, tested negative for FeLV but positive for FIV (which just means that he has to be an indoor cat, eat a high-quality diet, and go to the vet regularly — which is what should happen for all cats anyway). See Blackie’s full listing here.

If you would like to meet Blackie, please contact Belinda at belinda@cooperdooper.org.

  • WINK, it's only Wednesday! Meet, ZOE: a Special Sweetheart's Story... This pretty kitty with a bubblegum pink nose, Zoe, was rescued from a backyard in Brooklyn, where she was persistently friendly and unfailingly good-natured, searching for the right person to take her in. It worked, and she found herself a hero! However, Zoe unfortunately had a very bad infection in her eye, which had to be removed for her own good. ✧ But this little detail doesn’t stop Zoe for a second. She thinks she’s as pretty as ever—and we’re inclined to agree with her! Having one eye doesn’t impact on her health, her mobility, or her personality. In fact, she’s feeling happier and healthier than ever without the infection, and her gratitude for being saved can barely be contained. Zoe loves to be pet and to prove it, she’ll roll over onto her back and show off her belly, the ultimate sign of trust. All this, and her precious purr just keeps on rumbling. We can hardly believe how sweet and friendly she is—which ju...

But this little detail doesn’t stop Zoe for a second. She thinks she’s as pretty as ever—and we’re inclined to agree with her! Having one eye doesn’t impact on her health, her mobility, or her personality. In fact, she’s feeling happier and healthier than ever without the infection, and her gratitude for being saved can barely be contained. Zoe loves to be pet and to prove it, she’ll roll over onto her back and show off her belly, the ultimate sign of trust. All this, and her precious purr just keeps on rumbling. We can hardly believe how sweet and friendly she is—which just goes to show that you can’t keep a good kitty down.
✧
Zoe is approximately 4 years old, spayed, and current on vaccines. She tested negative for felv/FIV. She’s all-around healthy and ready to meet you! Plus, she can go to a home with or without another cat! If you’d like to schedule a playdate with this special girl, contact Tara Green at catsbkny@gmail.com! ✧
Thank you for thinking of animals in need - your support allows us to help the next furry sweetheart!"

Bear is a big boy, built like a linebacker on a football team, wide and round though he is actually not a big eater. He may look rough, but underneath it all he is a sweet boy who is very shy. Since I got a friendly kitty who liked to bully him into a foster home, he has been coming forward more and hiding less though he is still cautious. I pet him while he eats, and he loves to have his back end scratched. He used to hide under furniture all the time but now he is even sitting in the window looking out at the world. I'm so excited for him to keep becoming a more and more outgoing kitty with some love, patience and attention. 🐻 I caught Bear last winter with 6 other cats on a block in Bed Stuy where there has been a lot of development and soon the stray cats would have nowhere to go.

I caught Bear last winter with 6 other cats on a block in Bed Stuy where there has been a  lot of development and soon the stray cats would have nowhere to go. Though he was shy I didn't want to return him but wanted to give him the chance of living indoors. He has been neutered, tested negative for fiv/felv and is ready for nice home with sweet, patient people."
