On Dec 22nd, 2016 an ADORABLE young male kitty arrived crying @ our home.
We already have 3 cats & a dog, so we tried to find him a home. After a
month, and having allowed him inside (kept seperate from our zoo) due to
lethally cold weather, we decided he was here to stay. I was DEVASTATED
when he tested positive for FeLV. My problem isn't whether to give him a
chance at as long of a happy life he may have ahead of him, but HOW !  We
can't keep him alone in the basement bedroom forever, there isn't even a
decent sized window for him & my heart breaks that the only time I can give
him is to sleep by him at night. The few times I check in on him during the
day are so brief! He has SUCH character, and is SO handsome. I don't know
how he ended up at our home, unless he was dumped or left a nearby farm.
WHERE are the rescue agencies for FeLV+ cats ? ? ? Currently I'm treating
him for skin mites (has ear mites TOO) so he MIGHT be deemed "adoptable" at
a shelter that does try adopting out FeLV+ cats. The precautions necessary
to keep the mites, FeLV, oh yes- AND worms (had to treat EVERYONE) from
spreading is also wearing me out.
CAN  ANYONE  HELP  US ?
