Hi There! My name is Mary Ann. I came in with a large group of cats all living in one home. I have a respiratory virus that can be contagious to other cats so I am hoping to be adopted with another cat who lived with me prior (my mates are Puppy, Pigeon, Dormouse and Elsie - you can see their pictures online too!). If you don''t have a cat and have been trying to fill that empty void now is your chance!
Although I am a little scared of pets at first,I do enjoy the company of human companions. I am an easy going younger cat who is looking to relax and chill by your side.
Come and meet me today! You can learn more about my respiratory virus below.
*My adoption fee has been waived by a wonderful donor!*
Feline calicivirus (FCV) is a virus that can be contagious to other cats, but not to people or dogs. This group of cats was diagnosed with FCV infection, based on clinical signs which vary from cat to cat. Some cats have stomatitis/oral inflammation/oral ulcers while others have mild upper respiratory symptoms. We are treating the clinical signs as recommended for any cats with stomatitis by providing dental cleanings and extractions of teeth if necessary. We are treating any cats with Upper Respiratory Infection with a 10 day course of oral antibiotics.
It is possible, though unlikely, that these cats could transmit this strain of FCV to other in-contact cats, who could then develop signs of stomatitis or upper respiratory tract infection.
