This is Darla!
Darla is an approximately 1-year-old calico cat. Her and her presumed sister, Delilah, were brought to the shelter together after the citizen who found them could no longer care for them.
Darla and Delilah are both fairly shy when you first get to know them. However, they’ll warm up to you after getting to know you better. Darla and Delilah are both very sweet and gentle darlings who would probably do best adopted together. They can be pretty chatty and not only cry out to you, but they’ll often cry out to each other, too!
Darla and Delilah are also both FIV positive, meaning they have the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. Feline immunodeficiency virus is very similar to AIDS in humans and is sometimes referred to as feline AIDS. FIV just means that Darla has a weakened immune system and is more vulnerable to illnesses than other cats. FIV is NOT contagious to humans in any way, but can be contagious to other cats. However, FIV does not typically spread through everyday interactions like eating/drinking from the same bowl or social grooming. FIV is usually only spread through fighting, mating, or when a mother gives birth to kittens. Cats with FIV often live long, happy, and fulfilling lives.
If you’d be interested in getting to know this little darling, please call the shelter at (540)-778-2101!
