This beautiful little girl is mine now! She was slinking around a nice woman’s rural home for a few weeks when the woman decided to bring her in to the animal shelter next door. They require a feline aids test ran before accepting new cats as feline aids is transferred not sexually but my saliva via bite wounds. She tested positive. This could mean she carries aids OR that she was a house cat already vaccinated against it, as the vaccination will trigger a cat to forevermore test positive for some dumb dad reason. Anyways. The shelter wouldn’t take her and the woman has cats of her own at home so this baby was a liability. So, I took her home. I get half off vet care from the clinic I work at and I’m looking forward to caring for this sweet girl for the rest of her life, aids or no.

You can’t plug a gap and expect it to hold forever.
