Our featured cat for The River's Purrfect Friday: Miley

Here's what Dr. Jen had to say about Miley:

We have a lot of great people doing wonderful things over on the east side of the state, so when they contact us to see if we can help out with a cat with either FeLV or FIV, we do our very best to accommodate them in a timely fashion. Here is the email I received from Cindy Oakley, a dynamo and truly dedicated woman I have the pleasure of working with:
"I know you probably have a full house right now, and I bet the waiting list is pretty long, but I'm hoping you may be able to help me out. I know you have been there a lot for the Wyandotte shelter, but this cat I'm trying to help is from another shelter I help out, the Brownstown Animal Shelter. A few months ago we got in a cute little girl who was scared and all alone, and very sick with a respiratory infection. She was so scared when we got her, she wouldn't even eat if she saw someone looking at her. Over time we were able to get her over her URI and her fear of people. She has turned out to be a wonderful cat with a great personality. However, yesterday we were given some bad news: as she getting spayed, we found out she tested positive for FeLV. Would you be able to help us out? If we can go on the waiting list that would be great. She is a wonderful cat, and has been through a lot in her young life. I know you will be able to give her a chance she deserves."
Born in September of 2011, little Miley did indeed deserve another chance - not her fault she first contracted the virus but then ended up homeless and helpless. I know it breaks the hearts of everyone at Brownstown each and every time they get a positive test result back, but with us they know we will do everything in our power to keep our Big Sid's Kids happy and healthy, but also more importantly, hopefully get them adopted! FeLV isn't a reason to NOT consider adopting a cat as utterly adorable and affectionate as Miley!
One of our volunteers sent me an email after meeting this cute classic tabby for the first time: "Although Miley may not like being picked up, she sure loves to be scratched and tummy-rubbed! She is going to be a little love-bug!" I couldn't agree more! Sounds like our little miss has come an incredibly long way in just a few short months, and I guarantee the longer she is with us, the brighter her light will shine; makes me smile just anticipating how much she will blossom with us!
