Today our big Orange lover boy Melyn spent some of his afternoon in the lap of a 10 year old junior volunteer getting brushed and purring the whole time. What a sweetie. We are surprised no one has applied to adopt him yet. He's currently living in the Petvalu in East Windsor. He's hoping someone falls in love with him and takes him home soon, so he doesn't have to live in a crate anymore. Melyn ended up at a shelter and his time was up. The shelter wanted to put him down because he was FIV+. Luckily one of our volunteers was able to rescue him. At TCR we know FIV+ kitties can live long lives, just as long as other kitties, if they are kept inside, are well fed and their parents provide good health care for them. We've adopted out many FIV+ kitties who are happily living in their forever homes (many with non FIV+ cats). Melyn isn't a fan of all other kitties- he's met a few he didn't like, and others he did. So if he goes to a home with another kitty, it would have to be another laid back kitty like him.
