Special Needs Cat with FIV

Meet the Lovely Siamese Katie

Katie is a gorgeous long hair Siamese cat.  She has white feet, which give her the look of a Birman.  She is 3 or 4 years old, and has been at NCHS for one year.  She lives in the cat isolation room with other cats who have tested positive for FIV.

FIV is like the feline "equivalent" to the AIDs virus.  This means FIV cats should live indoor only and live in a single cat household or with other cats that are similarly infected. Cats with FIV may live long lives, but NCHS can't provide a health guarantee, so Katie is available with no adoption fee.

Are you the special person that can bring Katie home and into your family?

About the North County Humane Society

The North County Humane Society was founded as Action for Animal's Rights in 1977, and moved to its current location in Atascadero in 1997.  NCHS runs a “no kill” cat shelter, and the organization’s goals are to prevent animal homelessness and over population.  The cat adoption center is open Tuesday through Saturday, and additional programs are available for spay/neuter, feral trapping, microchipping, and homeless kittens.

We are grateful for and depend upon the monetary, time, and in-kind support of donors, members, sponsors, and affiliates for our funding.  We welcome your contributions.  Please stop by and visit with the cats, kittens and friendly staff at our shelter.
