SALEM is an adorable and loving all black cat who is FIV+ and FeLV+. His special needs do not stop him from being the best kitty around.
Salem was rescued late February 2019 from the streets of the Bronx. When we rescued this sweetheart he was terribly sick with a severe upper respiratory infection and high fever. After vetting, he tested positive for FIV and FeLV. We know that both of these viruses sound really scary, so we encourage you to check out our ADOPTIONS SPECIAL NEEDS FAQS page.
Salem is looking for a parent who is sleepy, just like him! Salem loves to lounge around the house and receive attention and affection. Salem is also looking for someone who would love to sing to him. He absolutely loves being sung to and he always responds to it – how adorable is that?! He craves being brushed with waterless cat shampoo. He purrs and wiggles while the brush runs across his fur and directs his foster mom on where to brush next by moving his body.
Salem loves food and he has been eating 3-4 cans per day on top of his dry food. In addition to his cat food, he also LOVES human food! His favorite dishes are scrambled eggs, shredded chicken breast (for which he starts squeaking uncontrollably), and unsweetened plain greek yogurt.
Although Salem is not the most energetic cat, he is the absolute sweetest, silliest, funniest, and most gentle kitty. He was on medicine for his illnesses when he was first rescued, and he never hissed at or scratched his foster mom while she was administering his medicine.
Salem would be the perfect cat for anyone who is looking for an only cat. He is everything people look for in felines – sweet, loving, and calm. His special needs do not make him any different than other cats – he just requires a little extra TLC. By adopting him, you will truly be saving a life and giving a cat who deserves all of the love in the world a chance.
Salem is up to date on vaccinations, neutered, FIV/FeLV+, and microchipped. Salem’s adoption fee has been reduced to $75 because he is special needs!
