Pet of the Week: Zoa

Sweet and spunky Zoa is our Pet of the Week!

This young (eight months old!) tuxedo cat was brought in by a good Samaritan in early June because she didn’t get along with the other kitty in the home. Zoa is a really sweet kitten that may need some extra time and attention to warm up to new situations and new people. When she was small, she was not taught how nice and friendly people can be, but she is learning quickly!

Zoa may be shy and timid at first, but once she knows she can trust you, she will show you just how wonderful she can be. Caregivers at the Pet Adoption Center have noticed that Zoa doesn’t get along with other cats, so she may do best as the only cat in her new home. Zoa also likes getting attention on her own terms, making her one of our Rambunctious Red personality pets. She will do best in a home with a cat-savvy family who knows when to give her some space.

During a routine physical exam, Zoa tested positive for FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus). FeLV can affect a cat’s body in many ways. The virus may weaken their immune system, leaving the cat susceptible to other infections or diseases like blood disorders or cancer. While there is no known cure for FeLV, infected cats can live for many years with proper veterinary care, a quality diet, a low-stress home, and lots of love. To help stop the spread, FeLV+ cats should be kept indoors as a single cat in a home, or with other FeLV+ cats.

Can you give Zoa the loving home she craves? She is spayed, current on vaccinations, and microchipped. Her adoption comes with many benefits, including 30 days of opt-in pet insurance through Trupanion. And since she is our Pet of the Week, Zoa’s adoption fee is just $30 – the cost of the pet license!
