GREAT NEWS EVERYONE! Went to retest Jack for FIV today and he came back
NEGATIVE! Might still be trying to find him a home though. Will post again after
I confirm if he still needs a new home or not. I've attached a couple pictures we took while we were at the vet :)
PLEASE SHARE WITH YOUR FRIENDS AND TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW! HE NEEDS A NEW HOME IMMEDIATELY!
Owner Alicia Ellis is looking for new home for Jack the healthy 1-year old indoor-only Russian Blue. He is currently staying with a friend of hers who says Jack cannot stay much longer. Jack is sweet, neutered, and up-to-date on shots. He tested positive for FIV but I don't know if he has been retested.
Alicia gives permission to crosspost and says, "If you or anyone you know can take him, please send me a message." Her email address is email@example.com (yahoo.com)
or message her on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/alleymaerki.
Owner believed she needed to keep Jack separate from her cats due to the FIV test result, or surrender him to a shelter (all rescues she contacted declined to take him), or adopt him out to be the one cat in a single cat home, or adopt him out to live only with other FIV positive cats, or euthanize him. A Best Friends post addresses mixing positives with negatives.

cfm/ Regardless, Alicia wants to give Jack to a rescue or adopter so please help Jack get a good forever home if you can.
Alicia says Jack is great with kids and "rough handling." If no qualified adopter appears in Scottsdale or Phoenix areas, she is open to discussing placement with qualified groups or adopters in neighboring states.
Here are some interesting points about Russian Blues from Rescueme.org (http://russianblue.rescueme.org/Arizona)
Russian Blue Cats can make good pets in Arizona if they match your IifestyIe. The Russian Blue is a gray-blue, short-haired cat. Russian Blues are smart, devoted cats that make wonderful, loyal companions. Russian Blues love attention but can do well by themselves also. Russian Blues are exceptionally good with children. This breed also does well with other pets.
The Russian Blue is also called the Archangel Blue. Russian Blues may exacerbate allergies less than other cats. Some Russian Blues can open windows and doors. According to legend, Russian Blues are descended from cats belonging to Russian Czars.More info about FIV+ cats is available at the FIVCats Yahoogroup, as well as the opportunity to discuss kitties with caring members who share their experiences. New members are always welcome.
