RESCUE FRIDAYS with PAWS CHICAGO! CAT of the WEEK: HOSSA!
Laid back, friendly and sweet, Hossa is a social butterfly who loves to be where the action is, just like Chicago Blackhawk Marian Hossa! This two-year-old cutie makes friends quickly and his foster family reported that he stole their hearts when he would cuddle up in bed at night. Hossa is a special needs kitty. He is Feline Immunodeficiency Virus positive, but currently living a healthy life with no symptoms. While this does not stop his sense of adventure, he would need to find a home where he is the only cat or has another FIV+ playmate. Consider adding Hossa to your family and changing his life forever.
For more information on Hossa or to learn more about FIV, call 773-935-PAWS or visit www.pawschicago.org.
