Sweet Biscuit Needs a Forever Home

Biscuit is currently available for adoption at Wayside Waifs.

Biscuit is currently available for adoption at Wayside Waifs.

This little girl is named Biscuit. Although she is fully-grown at five years of age, it would be very easy to mistake her for a much younger cat, since she’s such a tiny little thing. Biscuit, along with several other cats, was rescued by the Humane Society of the United States from horrible and unsanitary living conditions in Montana. Since she’s arrived at Wayside Waifs, her life is much better, and she is getting the attention she has obviously never had before. 

When someone comes to visit her, Biscuit immediately gets excited and happy, kneading her blanket and purring up a storm. Due to the neglect of her previous living situation, she’s not really sure what to do beyond that, though. She LOVES to have her head and chin scratched, and to be petted, and it is very obvious that she really WANTS to cuddle with you, but she’s just not sure, yet. Biscuit will come to you and rub against your hand and enjoy pets and scratches. Given time and patience, she will probably turn into a very affectionate lap cat for the right person. She just needs consistent encouragement from someone with whom she feels comfortable. She really is a sweet girl who needs a kind person to take her in, especially after the hardship she has already endured. She deserves it, don’t you think?

Like the other cats rescued in this particular raid, Biscuit has been exposed to FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus) and, although she has tested negative for the disease, she can still pass it on to other cats. For this reason, she needs to go to a home with no other cats. She will also need to be tested again in three months, and Wayside Waifs will provide that test at no charge to the special family that gives Biscuit the home she needs.

Feline leukemia virus is a contagious, viral disease of cats. In addition to causing leukemia, it has been associated with various other types of cancer, anemia, and immune suppression leading to increased susceptibility to various infectious diseases.

Although cats may clear initial infection, there is no cure for persistent infection and FeLV is ultimately fatal. Cats pass the virus between themselves through saliva and close contact, by biting another cat, through a litter box or food dish used by an infected cat.

Although cats like Biscuit, who have been exposed to FeLV, tend to be difficult to place for adoption, Wayside Waifs is committed to saving as many lives as possible.  If you are interested in opening your heart and home to Sunset, please visit her at Wayside Waifs.  As part of our Feline Frenzy summer cat adoption special, Biscuit’s $75 adoption fee is waived.
