Affectionate & Delicate
Female Domestic Short Hair Cat

Mia is a lovely, affectionate cat. She is very small although she is a fully grown adult and she is exceptionally cute.
Mia is our first foster and we couldn’t have imagined a better experience. She came to us after being separated from her four babies and was feeling a bit lonely but with lots of cuddles and treats she has come into her own. After only a few weeks under our care she has already blossomed and we are sure that she will become more and more confident as she moves into her forever home.
She is very clean and well behaved, she won’t jump on beds or couches unless you put her there. She has a good appetite, especially when chicken with pumpkin is on the menu, but she will wait patiently for you to prepare her meal.
Although she needs attention and cuddles, Mia is not a lap cat and doesn’t like to be held very much, but this might change with time. She is an independent and curious cat and will make her own fun playing with toys by herself and scratching cardboard boxes. She also loves to nap in the sun during the afternoon.
We feel very lucky to have had Mia staying with us, and she are sure she would be a wonderful addition to a loving forever home. She is a genuinely good cat, very adaptable and has a big heart.

Mia has tested positive for FIV but has no symptoms.
Studies have found that FIV+ cats often outlive their FIV- friends.
http://www.catchat.org/fiv.html "A ten-year FIV Monitoring Project was carried out at Glasgow Veterinary School involving 26 cats and the results indicated that a higher percentage of FIV negative cats died during the period of the study than FIV positive cats, and that FIV infection did not affect the cats' life expectancy.
Dr Diane D. Addie (Lecturer in Veterinary Virology, University of Glasgow) said "at least 3 studies in FIV positive cats have shown a life span equal to uninfected cats."
A fourteen year study by Maureen Hutchison B.Sc, BVMS, MRCVS (veterinary adviser to the Cat Action Trust) found that FIV-positive cats are more likely to die by being killed in road accidents or to be alive and well into their twilight years than they are to die from any FIV related condition."
