Moogly is another kitty who has come to us from Quebec by way of the Freedom Riders and One Last Chance Rescue. This poor guy must have quite the story to tell. He was found as a stray but he had a pretty collar with a bell, he'd already been neutered and had been declawed on all four of his feet. A good Samaritan took him in to a shelter but no one ever came looking for him. Not surprising, Moogly had a hard time competing out on the street and he contracted FIV. Feline Immunodeficiency Virus is transferred only through deep bite wounds. Moogly acts super scared when you first reach for him so we honestly wonder if someone didn't strike out at him as well. Once he realizes that you’re his friend though all he wants is to snuggle and purr for you. Pictures really don't do this boy justice, he really is a kitty you have to meet to see his true character shine through. After everything he's been through, we really want to find Moogly that perfect forever home. Moogly has met Lance with no problems so with the right introduction he would be ok with another "cat friendly" cat. Because he's a bit timid when you reach for him, we feel Moogly would do best in a quieter home.
If you’re interested in adopting Moogly or have any questions about FIV please feel free to contact the clinic.
The Feline Winn Foundation has this to say about FIV:
While FIV is a contagious disease, the risk of spred in stable households (where all the cats get along and not generally bite each other deeply enough to draw blood) is extremely low. Several studies have shown that infected cats can live with healthy cats for many years without disease transfer.
