This polydactyl princess is a nice girl. She tested positive for FIV and her finder, who had intended to keep her, is no longer comfortable with that plan. The bummer is that if she hadn't been tested, she'd be safe and sound right now because she is completely symptom-free. It's not fair, but she needs a new game plan and we won't hold her bloodwork against her. There's a very good chance this kitty may never develop any symptoms of Feline Immunodeficiency Virus in her lifetime because many FIV+ cats grow up to lead perfectly normal lives with good food, regular vet care and a stress-free, indoor kitty lifestyle. All we know for sure is that she is young, around 1 year old, and sweet as can be with lots of extra toes! She is not contagious to humans or dogs and can even live with other nice indoor-only felines. Regular nail trims are very important for anyone who chooses to adopt a special kitty like this with all those extra toes. When this kitty was spayed, the vet fixed a seriously painful ingrown toenail that had grown long enough to curl all the way around and poke into the pad of her paw! It feels better already and we're determined to make sure this doesn't happen again. In addition to large mittens, this friendly feline has phenomenal whiskers and she's generous with the head butts, too!
