Pepperoni Calzone, is from South Carolina, is FIV+, and came to HFL with severe dental problems. After his dental at the University of Minnesota Veterinary Medical Center in the fall of 2021, Pepperoni has been so much more comfortable and healthier. Dental issues are a common side effect of FIV+ viral infection in cats.
Pepperoni is best friends with the mascot of the south cattery, Salty, who is from Afghanistan. Salty loves cats, but disdains other dogs. She lost part of her nose, eyelids, and lips due to a sandfly infection.
