Pet of the Week: Meow

How many pets do you know that can say their own name? None? Well then let us introduce you to Meow, our Pet of the Week!

This beautiful longhair brown tabby was brought in by a good Samaritan in early April.

Meow is a very sweet and gentle boy looking for his fur-ever home. He was covered in mats when he first came into our care, so he will need someone who will keep his fur brushed and well-groomed. Fortunately, Meow loves being petted and enjoys being with his people.

Because Meow has such a kind-hearted temperament, his personality color is Bashful Blue. Meow is a gentle and loving cat who likes to take things slow. He may get nervous in new situations, so he would like a family who understands that he might need some time to warm up. Once he gets to know you, Meow will be a very devoted friend!

Meow has been diagnosed with Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). This is a viral infection that only affects cats. While they do sometimes have shorter lifespans, FIV+ cats can can live many years in good health with proper care. There is no cure for FIV, so there are no medications or special diets required. The only thing Meow needs is a loving home where he will receive lots of TLC! Meow has been around other cats at the Pet Adoption Center and has been well-behaved.  Meow does have a laceration on his left hip that is still healing, but he should make a full recovery. 

Meow comes neutered and microchipped.  His adoption includes a free visit to the veterinarian of your choice and 30 days of opt-in pet insurance through Trupanion. Since he is our Pet of the Week, Meow’s adoption fee has been reduced, although a pet license is a requirement and a fee may be applied.
