Hi… my name is Marmalade.

Adopted May 18, 2016

I’ve sure crammed a lot of living into my five years, and not a whole lot of it has been good, so I’m really looking forward to a turnaround pretty soon! First, everyone thought I was feral because I was roaming the streets (but they found that in fact I’m a total lover!). Then I tested positive for FIV, but please don’t let that scare you away because I’m an otherwise healthy guy and may never have any symptoms at all. (I could live very nicely with another FIV cat — and we have a few to choose from here!) Truthfully, I’d be happy in any situation as long as I had a human to share my love with, so won’t you help me get a new lease on life?

Arrived March 5, 2015

PS If ANY cat considers you for adoption, you know you’re pretty lucky, but if one of our few FIV cats picks you, you can be sure you’re REALLY special!

NOTE: FIV is a virus that can only be passed among cats (humans or dogs are never affected), and only through blood. Since cats rarely fight to the degree of drawing blood, FIV positive cats can live long and healthy lives with both other FIV positive cats and friendly non-FIV cats. So don’t let those letters scare you — they’re practically like everyone else and they’ll love you even more for choosing them!
