Meet Vanilla. Vanilla is a 10-year-old medium-hair Siamese mix with the face of a Bowery Boy toughie. After several hundred dollars worth of vet care, Vanilla’s been neutered, rid of fleas and healed of everything healable. Vanilla is your basic lap cat, affectionate and purry. Vanilla is also FIV-positive.
