The adopters of Feta and Truffle have been waiting patiently as the girls recover from a pesky upper respiratory infection. Feta was spayed today and will get adopted on Sunday! Truffle will hopefully get spayed next week and adopted next weekend!

What do Franklin, Daniel and Marmalade have in common? Besides being incredibly cute, they are all FIV+.
.
FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus) causes a weakening of the cat's immune system. While it sounds scary, FIV+ cats can live perfectly long, healthy and happy lives. ❀️
.
In addition, most kittens who test positive will test negative when re-tested at 6+ months of age. They initially test positive due to the antibodies they carry from their mother if she was positive.
.

Jazzy's kittens are now 3 weeks old! They are ahead of schedule when it comes to weight (kittens typically weigh 1 lb. at 1 month old). Their ears are perked up, their teeth are starting to come in and we have introduced them to their very first litter box.

Just when I thought I had seen it all...
.
On my way out the door to work this morning I noticed a chunk missing from my sweater. Hmmm, wonder how the washer managed that I thought. Then my husband reminded me about how we would always find the clothes from the drying rack lying on the floor in the bathroom. This leaves only one possible explanation...Biscotti!

Isn't Daniel dreamy? Who wants to meet him this weekend?! Dressed in his tuxedo, he's ready for a night out on the town or a relaxing night in catching up on some Netflix. Your pick. DM me to schedule a meet and greet with this handsome little dude.

Daniel, Franklin and Cookie will be available for adoption in 1-2 weeks through @petalliancego!
.
Send a DM to schedule a meet and greet for this weekend. Meet and greets are at my house and adoptions are finalized at @petalliancego.
.
Cookie: most playful of the group, very active but also sweet.
.
Daniel: calmest of the group, loves to play but is a little shy.
.
Franklin: sweetest of the group, has a personality similar to Watson's, cries to be held and purrs non-stop.
.
Franklin and Daniel did test FIV+ but please do not let this deter you from adopting them. Kittens that test FIV+ will need to be retested at 6+ months old to confirm their positive status. They often only test positive when younger due to carrying the antibodies of their FIV+ mother. Cats who are FIV+ can live long normal lives. They DO NOT require special care or frequent visits to the vet. ❀️🐱

Thank you @ca_corneille for your donation of the snuggle cat! As you can see, the #hurricanekittens love it.
.
Putting a stuffed animal or snuggle cat with motherless neonatal kittens is extremely comforting to them. ❀️🐱

Chi Chi was adopted today! I was contacted yesterday by one of the shelter staff members who said there was a couple interested in adopting Chi Chi. We brought her in today for a meet and greet and they decided to adopt her. If there ever was a cat deserving of a home, it is Chi Chi. She had been at the shelter since early July. She is 11 years old, large, black and front declawed. I enjoyed spending the past week with Chi Chi but am beyond happy that she now has a forever home. Congratulations Chi Chi!

One question I often get asked is if cats/kittens should be given a flea preventative and which one. The answer is yes! Even if your cat is kept indoors, they can still be exposed to fleas that hitch a ride in your house via yourself or other pets.
.
I recommend giving a flea preventative year round. While it is true that fleas cannot survive in temperatures below freezing, once they are inside they can survive indefinitely as long as they have a warm-bodied host to feed on.
.
I have compiled a list of the most common flea preventatives for cats. My go to has always been Revolution. It protects against more besides just fleas, is waterproof and is lower in cost.
.
Please consult with your veterinarian before switching flea preventatives.🐱

So after the #hurricanekittens vet check today we learned that Matthew and Harvey are indeed girls and not boys. Change their names? What do you guys think? Irma is a girl and Charley is a boy. πŸŒͺ

Orlando, what a week it's been! Today was my first day back at work since last Thursday. While I enjoyed my unexpected time off I, like everyone else I'm sure, is ready to get back to some type of normalcy. While it was hard to see the devastation caused by hurricane Irma, it was awesome to see the community come together to help one another. The world got to see a small glimpse into what makes us Orlando Strong. ❀️

#throwbackthursday to these little cheese kittens. We were lucky they all had different eye colors otherwise they would've been impossible to tell apart. Anyone know who's who in this picture?

Received this is an email this morning:
.
"Pet Alliance staff have been working overtime to get the locations cleaned up and back up and running. .
We are working with other organizations in the state to transfer in pets that were affected by the storm. At this time, we plan to transfer in 40-80 animals that have been impacted by Irma. We will need additional resources in order to care for these pets. Please consider making a donation from our Wish List or a monetary donation to help out."

Hurricane Foster: Chichi .
When @petalliancego announced the opportunity for volunteers to foster an animal in an effort to clear the shelter ahead of hurricane Irma, I immediately knew who I was going to choose. Chichi is an 11 year old black front-declawed large female cat that had been at the shelter since early July. What first drew me to Chichi at the shelter were her "eyebrows". She had had some sort of inflammation of her eyelids making it look like she had eyebrows. Upon spending some time with Chichi, I discovered that she was an amazingly sweet cat who would make the perfect companion for someone. Despite her sweet temperament, she was over-looked week after week at the shelter.
.
Upon bringing Chichi to my house, she immediately made herself right at home. She claimed my bed as her own and has been my snuggle buddy every night since. During the day, she likes to lay on the floor by my window basking in the sun and playing with catnip toys. Chichi loves to be petted and brushed. She purrs constantly, vibrates her little tail and has even climbed into my lap a couple of times.
.
I've enjoyed giving Chichi a break from the shelter but ultimately would like to find a forever home for her. She wants nothing more than to curl up on the couch or in bed and snuggle with her person. An ideal home for Chichi would be one without young children, dogs or cats. Chichi would prefer to be the center of her person's world. If you are interested in meeting this sweet senior lady, please send me a DM. πŸ’œ
