Favorite Nap Spot:
your lap! Or a cozy bed.
when you're as gorgeous as she is, what other special skills does a girl need?
***YAHOO! Cleopatra has been ADOPTED!!! She went to her new home in January, where she is living with a basset hound mix named Brandy. The updates so far are great, and Cleo is happy to have a place where she can be the queen. Her foster family was wonderful, but unfortunately Cleo just didn't get along with their other FIV+ cat, Fidel, so after a few months and many tears, they had to bring her back to us. Still, it's a happy ending for everyone now that Cleo has found a permanent home!
***HOORAY! CLEO IS BEING FOSTERED! A wonderful couple who have another FIV positive cat have agreed to foster Cleopatra with the intent to adopt her providing it all works out - YAY for Cleo!!!
Hello all, I'm Cleopatra! I was found pregnant and hungry on the street. Fortunately for me I was rescued and brought to Infinite Hope, where I had my kittens back in April. They have now all been adopted, but I am still here, waiting for someone to love me and give me a home.
In addition to being absolutely gorgeous, Cleopatra is an extremely loving, gentle, affectionate cat who love to be held, sit in your lap, or be carried over your shoulder. She can be pretty playful, but for the most part is a mellow girl who just wants you to pet her and give her some attention.
Cleo has been spayed and is up to date on all of her vaccinations. While she is otherwise healthy, Cleo does have FIV, an immune deficiency virus. Although FIV is definitely manageable, it scares a lot of people off...this is a real shame, because it is entirely possible for cats with FIV to live long, healthy, symptom-free lives with proper care and nutrition.
For cats with no other symptoms, and otherwise generally good health, this might simply be a matter of ensuring she gets a sound diet, possibly with added vitamins, anti-oxidants, and Omega 3/ Omega 6 fatty acids, as well as prompt, aggressive treatment of colds, infections, or other conditions as they crop up.
Having FIV also means that Cleopatra (and all FIV+ cats) should either be a single cat, live with a dog, or with other FIV+ cats. FIV can be transmitted to other cats through bites, and for that reason it is important that FIV+ cats not live with any FIV- cats.
Having FIV has not affected Cleopatra's health, but it has unfortunately greatly affected her chances of being adopted. She is a wonderful, beautiful cat with lots of love to give who would make a great companion to someone looking for a single cat, or to someone with a dog.
We guarantee that if you meet her, you will fall in love! If you are interested in meeting Cleopatra or if you want to speak with any of our adoption volunteers, please don't hesitate to give us a call at 718-852-4219 and leave a message for Inifnite Hope volunteers Aimee, Kim, Sarah, or Eric.
