These are some of the special needs kitties at Tabby’s Place!

We just donated $250 to them!

Tabby’s Place takes in any kind of kitty, regardless of age of health. They have FIV+ cats, very elderly cats, partially paralyzed, special diets, you name it. They are also cage free, so these guys get to have a lovely place to either lives out their lives or wait to be adopted in.

You can donate to them through PayPal or you can even sponsor a special needs cat monthly! <3

Our new kitty is here! Her name is Cookie, and she has FIV. We understand that adopting an FIV+ cat isn’t for everyone, but we encourage you to be informed about this disease, and support your local shelters that take care of these cats! Our Cookie plush is maintenance free and helps support less-adoptable kitties like her in real life! Half of your plush purchase will be donated to a cat shelter or rescue group that takes care of homeless pets.

Hi! I’m super excited you made an FIV kitty, and I actually just ordered mine. :) 

I wanted to clarify a couple of things as someone who has two FIV+ cats and one FIV- cat as companion animals though. 

As noted, most FIV+ cats live long lives if they’re properly cared for. 

FIV+ cats tend to be extremely docile. Obviously this may not always be the case, but having an FIV+ cat and an FIV- cat living together is fine the vast majority of the time (as long as they are spayed/neutered). If the cats do not get along, then it’s a problem, but since FIV can only be transmitted through deep bite wounds, it takes some serious, non-playful combat for an FIV+ to infect another cat. Bites like this are very rare in a domesticated setting.

If both of the cats are friendly and good with other cats, an FIV+ and an FIV- cat living together will be fine. And really, you shouldn’t be keeping together cats that seriously fight anyway (of course!). We have two FIV+ cats and one FIV-, and they’re best friends.

Of course your FIV- cat should be a 100% indoor cat as well, because you wouldn’t want to risk them bringing infections inside. 

I think the no FIV+ cats with FIV- cats stigma does cause some FIV+ kitties to go unadopted, so I wanted to clarify as someone with a lot of experience with these kitties!

Here’s a couple of good sources- 1, 2

I’m so glad to hear you have both an FIV+ and An FIV- kitty! Of course in cases like yours, it is possible, I am just recommending the safest possible option for everyone. Use your own discretion, I just can’t recommend something that would possibly put someone’s cat at risk, even if the risk is very small.
Every kitty is different, so just make sure that no matter what you guys do, make sure to be well informed and do what’s best for your kitties!

I’ve personally heard many stories of FIV+ cats living together with FIV- cats :) Thanks for the additional info!

I purchased a catnip toy from The Tiny Tabby on Storenvy and my cat LOVES it. And half of the proceeds go to cat shelters or rescue groups! Here’s my kitty shortly after receiving her new toy. 😸 You can get one at thetinytabby.storenvy.com

Haha aww this made me smile so much!

Wooooo! From the sales of our Strawberry plush, we&#8217;ve now donated a total of $750 to k9kastlecorp, a non-profit animal rescue group that saves the lives of kitties in dire situations in the New York City area. They often save the ones that others would not&#8230; such as disabled, injured or older cats. NYC shelters have a high kill rate, so many lives would be lost without rescue groups like these! They recently asked for donations to help with their high vet bills so they could continue to save lives. You can donate directly to them here or pick up one of the few remaining Strawberry plushies to donate $35. When the rest of the stock sells out, we will have donated a total of $1000!!

Hi, I just had a question. How long does it usually take to process/ship an order? I adopted Sully early this morning, and I'm super excited to get him. Love all your kitties, btw!

I’ll make this a public post just incase anyone else was wondering this!
The most it will ever take is a week, but it is usually faster than that. I wish The Tiny Tabby could be what I do 24/7 but since I have a day job it’s hard to get to the post office. I usually mail things on Friday or Saturday, but sometimes my kind friends help me out and mail things for me during the week :)
I always aim to mail things ASAP, so I hope if you guys are wondering why it takes a little bit that it’s not from a lack of trying :)
