My Story

Sweet Summer is a darling 6-year-old girl in the prime of her life. She had been living outside when her person surrendered her to SCFoA when she moved. But Summer is completely acclimated to the indoors now and loves being close to her person.

A purr machine, she adores chin scratches, head and full-body rubs—giving adorable gentle head bumps so her foster will scratch her head. She likes being brushed gently as well. As she does get over-stimulated it’s a good idea to give her breaks from cuddling as it is important to help her feel comfortable in between petting sessions.

This sweet girl loves playtime—especially the interactive type with her human. Some of her favorite toys are cat teasers on a stick and a laser toy.

She is multimodal in her relaxation time—independent and alone is A-OK, but she’s also up for a cuddle-up cat nap with her foster as well.

Summer is FIV positive, which used to be considered dire. We now know, however, that all that means is that she will need to be fed healthy food and have her health monitored with annual vet visits. She will also need to live her life indoors. FIV cats will otherwise live a normal life and can have loving cat companions that they get along with, without fear of transmitting their disease. Transmission of FIV is only possible through deep puncture wounds (if she were to get into a fight with another cat) and is not transferable to humans. Unfortunately, however, our beautiful Summer doesn’t get along with other cats and would do best as the only cat in the household anyway.

Summer is up to date on their FVRCP vaccinations, rabies, microchipped, spayed, dewormed, and tested for negative for FELV/FIV.
If you have any questions or would like to meet Summer, please contact her foster Donya, and arrange a meet/greet.

Can you give Summer a furrever loving, indoor only, home? She will be eternally grateful and will give you all the love in the world in return.
