FIV+ Former Feral Domino’s 15th Birthday by Layla Morgan Wilde
Happy May Day! We’re on day one of our 30-day digital detox but auto-posting select posts like this one. It’s with great joy to share our news about our old boy Domino turning fifteen. He’s the poster boy for adopting FIV+ cats. His story is one of survival, resilience and hope. We don’t know where our former feral came from, but he showed upon our porch 14 years ago where he made his home for seven years.
Domino shied away from humans but befriended Angel Merlin and Coco in 2004 and became fast friends with Odin and Merlin in 2011.
We made his porch life as comfortable as possible, and when he expressed interest in where his cat friends disappeared after their garden outings, we set up a spot by a window where he could spy inside.
He eluded every attempt at trapping and if you’ve not read his amazing transformation from feral to house cat, enjoy Operation Domino
Gradually, Domino adjusted to indoor life to lap cat. He’s a devoted daddy’s boy but enjoys the best of an indoor/outdoor lifestyle.
Domino still has no interest in birthdays but won’t say no to catnip or treats.
Thank you for being our friends. You’re welcome to partake in a celebratory toast and our best fishes. Free catnip for everyone! Can you identify all our gang at the birthday party bar including a few angels?
Thank you to all our followers on Instagram @CatWisdom101 and @BlackcatsofIG where we just celebrated 7000 followers. We loved the Coachella retro vibe of the hippie van and it inspired our birthday card.
And if anyone needs a birthday card to send someone, we whipped up this cutie.
