Hi, all. I used to belong to this group a few years ago when my positives were still alive-- we lost Patches, the last of them, last September at the age of 8 or 9.
?I am writing to beg your help finding a home for an incredible positive cat who is currently living outside. I started a Trap-Neuter-Return project in my town a few months ago and we are trapping at a large apartment complex. Tonight a tenant showed me an extremely gorgeous and affectionate cat who lives outside her building. She and her neighbor feed him. Apparently he was abandoned a couple years ago when a tenant moved out. Another tenant took him in got him tested and he tested FeLV+. That tenant then moved out and reabandoned him. One of the tenants who currently feeds him can't take him in because she lives in a small apartment with negative cats. The other has no cats and takes him in for a night now and then in the winter, but will not keep him because he howls to go back outside. I am sure he would get over that in a few weeks, and don't think he should be outside another winter with his immune-compromised condition (not to mention that there are other cats? there and some people in the complex have complained about their cats getting out and coming back FeLV+). Would you consider taking this cat, or do you know someone who might? I will try to get a picture of him. He's a really great cat-- the type of cat you meet and immediately think "what a great cat!" Very personable. My house is currently full of negatives, both my own and fosters, and is divided into 4 areas with animals that can't meet, so I have nowhere to put him myself. I have use of a retired boarder's kennel for short-term holds, and can put him there temporarily, though I hate to stress him out by caging him. Will appreciate any help you can give finding this boy a home. thanks, Michelle Lerner _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org
