Meet Mango

Greetings, lovely humans! Mango here, patiently anticipating the day I’ll be welcomed into my forever home. While I may initially come across as a bit reserved, give me a chance, and you’ll uncover the layers of my sweet and affectionate soul.

There’s nothing quite like the joy of a gentle petting session for me. The touch of a caring hand brings out the purrs and the twinkle in my eyes, revealing the depth of my affectionate nature. I’m not just a cat; I’m a connoisseur of warmth and tenderness.

Sunshine holds a special place in my heart. Basking in the golden rays is one of my absolute favorite pastimes. You might catch me sprawled out, soaking in the sun’s embrace, with contentment radiating from every whisker. It’s the simple pleasures, you know?

Now, let me spill the beans about my little sanctuary—my beloved pink hiding bed. It’s not just a bed; it’s a fortress of comfort where I feel safe and secure. You’ll often find me nestled in there, dreaming cat dreams and contemplating the mysteries of the world. It’s my cozy retreat, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

What I’m truly longing for is a loving family, one that recognizes the precious gem I am. I’m ready to reciprocate that love tenfold, cherishing every moment we spend together. If you’re seeking a feline companion who thrives on warmth, affection, and a touch of mystery, look no further. I’m Mango, and I can’t wait to bring my unique brand of sweetness into your home!

Mango's Medical Information

I have FIV, that's what I have but it is NOT who I AM! Please don't let that scare you away. I want you to know that FIV+ cats can and DO live long, healthy, and normal lives when given the chance. In fact, statistically, most FIV cats live as long as their indoor counterparts (13-18 years), and much longer than cats that live outdoors (3-8 years). There are many reported cases where FIV+ cats live well into old age without ever showing any symptoms. It's important to note that dogs, other pets, and humans are absolutely immune to FIV. The virus itself is astonishingly frail and can live outside of the body for only a few seconds. The virus is also extremely slow-acting, so it is unlikely to pose any threat to other cats in the household. I know that adopting an FIV+ cat may seem like a big responsibility, but I promise that I am worth it. I am a sweet and loving kitty who just wants a warm and safe place to call home. If you are willing to give me a chance, I promise to bring you years of joy and companionship. So please come and meet me, and see for yourself that FIV+ cats are just as wonderful and deserving of love as any other cat.
