Can You Tell Cobbie She Is Less Adoptable?

      51 Comments on Can You Tell Cobbie She Is Less Adoptable?


Adopt cats, we deserve it!I need your help friends.  I really don’t know whether to be angry or sad.  Why?  Let me introduce you to Cobbie.  Cobbie is in Greenville, SC.

Adopt cats, we deserve it!
Isn’t she the cutest little thing?  She might be around 8 weeks old.  She needs a home.  Does she look less adoptable to you?  Nope, me neither.  You see, Cobbie is FIV+ and that’s where I get a bit angry, and a bit sad too.  There is such an unwarranted stigma associated with FIV and that’s so unfortunate for sweet kitties like Cobbie.  FIV is not a death sentence, far from it.  There are so many loving kitties that are FIV+ leading happy and healthy lives.

My dear friends at Cats of Wildcat Woods had a wonderful post about FIV Facts and their 13 year old kitty with FIV. Please go read that post HERE.

I’m so sad for Cobbie, because of her FIV it seems that nobody is interested in her.  I know that because in Greenville, SC, it seems as though they contact me as a last resort.  They know I have the best friends in the whole wide world and that y’all will help me get the word out about sweet Cobbie.

Adopt cats, we deserve it!Adopt cats, we deserve it!Cobbie is currently occupying cage space at a local Vet’s office. This is the same kind Vet that cared for my Sister Dolly and for Little Bit (adopted by Marg), and so many others.  This Vet provides lots of care for helpless and homeless critters.  But unfortunately the cage space will soon be needed for another extremely sick or injured critter.

I need to find Cobbie a forever home, a foster home, or placement in a no-kill shelter.  Cobbie is in Greenville, SC.

There are six of us here, Dad has his paws full, so we can’t take her.  Please take a few minutes and share her story and her photos.  She is beautiful, inside and out.  If you can help, please email me at brianfrum (at) gmail (dot) com.  I can’t bring myself to tell her she is less adoptable, can you?

Thanks friends, y’all are the best.

Oh Brian, Cobbie is beautiful…. Alex & I will cross our paws that she finds a forever home very soon, because she would make someone such a great friend.

Oh Brian, she is cute. That is just horrible that no one will take her. I sure wish I wasn’t so full. There just isn’t another inch here. We are sending tons and tons of purrs so that Cobbie will find a home. We sure will put the word out. That is such a good post Brian. Take care.

Cobbie looks so sweet. We sure do hope there is a perfect home out there for her. She deserves it!

She is soooooooooooooo adorable!!!!!!!!! We are purraying that someone will come forward and give her a wonderfully loving home. It is so sad that the general public doesn’t understand FIV.

Bless you for all you do to help the homeless……xxxxxxxxx

What a cute little girl she is! We pray she can find a home! Mom had a kitty, Binky Baby, who was FIV+ and lived to the ripe old age of 14. Luckily she was not an agressive cat and didn’t pass it on to her two siblings. We didn’t discover this until she was 10 or 11. When she was born, testing for it was not common. She was always an indoor cat and no cat she came into contact with had it.

We’ll share on FB. Our Domino is FIV+ and he’s seven, healthy and happy.

She is lovely! We all need to help spread the word that FIV is not a death sentence. This will help at least some FIV kitties a chance to live a good life.

Cobbie has such a sweet face. Why do people insist on being misinformed and ignorant on FIV? I just don’t understand it. I sure hope Cobbie finds a forever home soon.

Cobbie is adorable and we want her to have a happy furever home!! Y’know, Brian, our mom once had someone who runs a local rescue group…a rescue group, we use that term loosely…tell our mom that they wouldn’t take a cat in like Cobbie because there are so many “nice, healthy” cats out there looking for homes, it’s just not worth taking in a cat that has “issues.” Well, our mom will NOT deal with that rescue group ever again. We should never forsake those kitties that might have some “issues” that some people think makes them “less adoptable.” You… Read more »

It’s hard to imagine that sweet little thing is hard to adopt, but I know she is. What an adorable kitten. My peeps are getting ready to go out of town, but M said she’ll try to squeeze in a post.

Cobbie is a cutie. We hope she finds a home soon! We tweeted on her but don’t know that will help any. In fact, we accidentally tweeted it to you the first time. As if you don’t already know. 🙂

Cobbie is so beautiful. I hope and pray somebody decides to give her a forever home… Sadly, shelters tend to give precedence to cats in perfect health, so it will be a struggle 🙁

We tweeted this too. WE sure hope that at least temporarily a foster home will open up for sweet angelic Cobbie. We are positive that there is a forever and ever home waiting for this dear one.

Cobble is the cutest kitten I’ve ever seen. Unfortunately for TW, I’ve chosen to be an only cat. We’ll tweet about her and hope someone listens.

We just don’t understand this less adoptable status thing. We, our Mumsy, had never even heard of it before. We had no idea kitties were so discriminated against. It just breaks our hearts. Mumsy never did worry about our colors or problems, she just asked us if we’d like to stay and make this our home and we each said, yes! We sure wish we could do more, but there are seven of us kitties here inside, and Mumsy cares for the ferile kitties outside too. But we will so all we can to help get Cobbie a forever home.

Cobbie is just so sweet and look at that face! We sure hope someone comes along and opens their heart and home to her and very soon too!


OMG…that adorable little girl must find a forever home. such a cutie.

Cobbie is so sweet and cute. She looks like she always has a surprise look on her face. We purrs and prays she will be able to find a forever home soon. With the straight forward facts out there now hopefully she will be more adoptable instead of less adoptable.

Oh Brian, can we do something to help?

It is so difficult for kitties like sweet Cobbie because potential adopters are wary about the condition, the cost of vet fees if the kitties become ill etc., especially when there are lots other pets available for adoption.

We are purring and praying that a good home can be found for her

We really hope she finds a good home! FIP positive kitties aren’t the only ones who have a rough time. Feline Leukemia positive ones do too. We had a kitty who died of leukemia and the others must have been exposed to the virus he was shedding, so they would have tested positive too. They all had normal, long lives. So long as there are no young kittens in the house I believe its safe to have a feline leukemia positive cat. Yet many places won’t try to place positive cats.

Such a sweet kitty! Banjo and I send best wishes and thoughts that a forever home is found soon for this little cutie patootie!

Oh, we really hope Cobbie finds a home. Wish we could help, but we just took in Milkbone (Mr Mean), who is also an FIV kitty. Both Bubbles and Mrs B had FIV and we can confirm that this should not be a reason not to adopt a kitty. We really hope she finds her very own forever home soon.

She is so adorable! I would take her in but my alpha kitty would not stand for anyone sharing her limelight. I will share her wherever I can, and pray she finds the perfect loving home.

Cobbie is adorable! I would take her if I could, but this is a feline leukemia house and I couldn’t risk exposing her to that, too. Herman has both and is coping with it well so far, but I feel it wouldn’t be fair to Cobbie to take her in where she could get another disease. I hope she finds a good home soon.

Cobbie is such a sweetheart and I hope she gets her furever home.
