Olivia: Save the Animals Foundation

CincyPet Magazine's Rescue Cat of the Week

Olivia is a three year-old domestic short hair cat available for adoption with Save the Animals Foundation. Her estimated birth date is in 2017. 

Olivia is one gorgeous cat. When you first see her, what strikes you is her very glossy black coat and gleaming gold eyes. On closer inspection, though, you also notice that her ebony fur is sprinkled every so often with hairs that shine and catch the light like gold threads in an evening gown or tapestry. Our special girl is a sweetheart to boot. She is a little timid with new situations but perks up for attention with a gentle touch and quiet talk. Olivia is not overly fond of being picked up but would make excellent company for those with a serene lifestyle. 

Olivia came to STAF from a shelter in rural Kentucky when she tested positive for the feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV). STAF specializes in finding wonderful homes for cats with FIV, who have a normal life expectancy. The condition is non-transferable to people. Olivia is healthy and we know that she was once in a home. To give this darling girl a fresh start at forever happiness, please come meet her and fall in love. 

All cat adoptions at STAF are by appointment only. Cat adoptions are within 150-mile radius of the shelter (4011 Red Bank Road Cincinnati, OH 45227), which includes Dayton, Columbus, Louisville, Lexington, Indianapolis and the surrounding areas. Adoption fee for cats is $40 and includes spay/neuter, microchip, and carrier. Please note, you must be 21 years of age or older to adopt a cat from STAF. If you are interested in more information about Olivia or would like to adopt her, please fill out the adoption application on their website and email it to jean@staf.org.

A Word About FIV

Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) is not a death sentence and most FIV+ cats die from old age. It is transmitted from one cat to another by deep puncture wounds and is not spread by casual contact. It is also not transmitted to humans or dogs. Studies show that friendly, spayed or neutered cats are very unlikely to spread the virus to other cats or kittens in the home. As long as your cats get along and do not have any serious fights or bite each other, then FIV+ cats and non-FIV+ cats can live together in harmony without harm.
