Description:
Luna's world was turned upside down when her owners could no longer give her the care she needed. For the first couple of days at the shelter, she was clearly scared, hiding in the corner of her kennel. With one cuddle from our Animal Control Officer, Luna instantly felt safe and her true personality came out. She is an extremely sweet girl who wants nothing more than a second chance at a forever home.Luna is FIV+. Feline immunodeficiency virus, or cat FIV, is a retrovirus infection first discovered in cats in the U.S. The virus is often referred to as cat HIV or cat AIDS because it has a similar effect on felines. FIV-positive cats may have the virus in their system for years before showing signs of illness. The virus works by killing or damaging cells in a cat's immune system, often targeting white blood cells. The ongoing damage of FIV in cats eventually leads to a weakening of the immune system. Once that happens, cats with FIV can become vulnerable to secondary infections. Keeping them indoors helps prevent such secondary infections.Most cases of cat FIV come through an infected cat passing it to another through a deep bite. While FIV is contagious, cats typically do not transmit the virus by sharing an eating bowl with other cats or through other feline contact actions like social grooming, sneezing or sharing a litter box.Animal meetings and adoptions by appointment only.
