“If you wanna be my human, you gotta get with my friends,” - Selena and Checkers, probably
The yin to her yang, the sugar to her spice, the cat to her nip... this iconic duo is READY to show the world what friendship is made of! Meet Selena (Tabby and white) and Checkers (Black and white). These two made the long trip from the Caribbean to St. Louis in September, and once they met each other, they became inseparable. They are truly #FriendshipGoals: breakfast and dinner together, wait for the other to watch tv (their favorite channel is the Fish Channel), and they ALWAYS take naps together.
Selena knows Checkers is FIV+, but she also knows there’s almost no risk of her getting it from her pal. It attacks the immune system, however, it is very difficult to transmit it to other cats (it cannot be transmitted to humans). At the moment, there is not a treatment for it, but FIV+ cats can live happy lives with their feline friends. ❤️
Selena and Checkers are the perfect match for each other. Selena is a spunky, outgoing gal and the life of the party, while Checkers is a bit shy and likes cuddling and watching things from the sidelines. Selena helps Checkers gain confidence in herself while Checkers helps Selena entertained and is ready to provide snuggles at any moment, which is why it would be so wonderful to see them find a home together!
