Ant needs a home!

Little black Ant had a very rough start in life. Animal Friends’ humane officers rescued Ant with 47 other cats from a house in Garfield.  Many of the cats, Ant included, were diagnosed with FIV, an immuno suppressant disease that affects only cats.  In addition to being FIV positive, severe neglect, lack of medical attention and a terrible eye infection left Ant visually impaired. But don't think that slows her down!  Ant gets around just fine, avoiding most obstacles as if she could see them clear as day.

Ant is a youngster at 11 months old.  She currently shares her space with 8 other cats from her previous home. She enjoys attention, but because she does not see well she is often head shy when someone approaches her to pet her.  Although, if you are patient, she will warm to you and let you pet her. She is often seen lounging on top of the cat tree, looking out the window and watching everything pass her by.  She would be most comfortable living with one of her housemates or another FIV positive cat. Could you be the one to give Ant a chance to thrive?
