Dulca

STATUS: Available

Meet Dulca!  Dulca is a beautiful tan tabby – she is about 6 years young!  Dulca’s name is derived from the Latin word for sweet as she is a very sweet laid back cat.  Dulca came to us from a large colony of cats where she had multiple litters.  The kind individual that was feeding her reached out for help for Dulca, her kittens and other cats in the colony. Dulca was obviously someone’s cat at one time as she is so friendly.  She loves attention and pets and deserves a chance at a loving indoor home.

Dulca has been spayed, vaccinated and microchipped.  She did test positive for FIV. If you have room in your heart & your home for Dulca, contact us here or email heartstohomesfelines@gmail.com. The adoption fee is $200.

About FIV

FIV is a feline only virus that cannot be transmitted to people or other animal species. FIV is not passed between cats through casual contact like sharing food bowls or litter boxes or through playing, wrestling or licking/cleaning each other. FIV is passed between cats through a deep bite wound – deep enough to inject saliva into the bloodstream of the other cat – commonly occurring in outdoor  males who fight for territory. Purdue University’s College of Veterinary Medicine conducted a long-term study in cat shelters and found that FIV-positive cats can live with FIV-negative cats and not infect the FIV-negative cats during normal day-to-day interaction. Studies over the last 10 years have also shown that cats with FIV often live as long as otherwise healthy cats that do not have this virus. For more information, please check out the links below.
