Subject: Thor - An FIV Positive Cat in Need of Home or Rescue!! Euless Animal Shelter! Euless, TX


Thor – ID# 16349 - Thor is a great cat in a tough situation…..Thor was found as a stray in Euless and taken in by Trinity GAP Rescue. It was very obvious he had been someone's cat but was now homeless and just hanging out. He is thought to be about 3 years old and is now neutered and vaccinated. He is also FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) positive. Please don't let this diagnosis deter you from adopting this big sweet boy.

There are great articles on FIV cats but please make sure you use a reputable site because if taken care of , FIV positive cats can live long, healthy lives. Because Thor is FIV positive he should positively be an indoor only cat. Also he should be an only cat or with a family with other FIV positive cats. FIV poses no risk to humans! Here is a link to a site recommended by our vet: http://www.pethealthnetwork.com/cat-health/cat-diseases-conditions-a-z/feline-immunodeficiency-virus-fiv and here is an excerpt from the article: Treatment of FIV If your cat tests positive for FIV, it is NOT a death sentence! Cats with FIV can live until a ripe old age - many infected senior cats pass as a result of problems not associated with their infection.


Thor is such an awesome cat!  He is a big lovable teddy bear, and you cannot ignore him.  If you try, he will reach out with a big paw and grab you.  Everyone who sees him, loves him!  He's so affectionate he even comes when you call him!  He loves being brushed and petted. He winds in and out of your legs looking for attention. He doesn't hide like so many cats in the shelter but is very curious and content to just chill on the floor.  He has this look on his face like he's saying – "What? I know I'm gorgeous!!"   Haha!!  He's quite a heart stealer!  He loves being held too. He will cling to you sometimes so you won't stop petting. He will bat at fingers too. He LOVES batting his paws when you wiggle your hands at him
Thor is just TOTALLY amazing!  These pix do not do him justice.  He is gorgeous, but his personality makes him even more special!  
FIV is often misunderstood and people often shy away from adopting cats that are FIV positive because they don't truly know what it is.  Sadly it makes it harder for them to get adopted.  Pray we find someone who will give him a chance.
