My husband and I recently took in a really friendly street kitty -- we were petting him when his owner informed us she had tossed him out because she'd recently adopted two dogs, and told us to feel free to take him home! We had another cat, so we quarantined him in a room in our house until we could get him tested and vaccinated, and were hoping he would be able to join our family. He is super affectionate and really calm, just a delight of a cat! Unfortunately the vet came back and told us he has feline leukemia, so we're worried about our existing cat, because it can spread through saliva. I also know that people have a lot of misconceptions about feline leukemia -- even though most cats live a totally normal life with it -- and he'll probably have a hard time getting adopted at a regular shelter. He's between 2 and 6 years old, so fully grown, and at a healthy 10 pounds. He is 100% NOT feral and it's clear he's used to living in a home! To learn more about feline leukemia, here's a good primer: https://bestfriends.org/stories-blog-videos/latest-news/feline-leukemia-misconceptions We're looking for someone with a good heart to take him in! He'd need a home with no other cats (dogs and other animals would be totally fine!). He has all his shots (rabies, distemper) and is fixed. Happy to deliver to you for totally free! Just send me a message. Thanks for your time, all! - Raquel (Less)
