Yes, thsnk you and your group for roling with the punches and taking on the task of fostering and finding a home for an FeLV+ cat. Let me offer a glimmer of hope -- We recently had a handsome Siamese boy tesrt FeLV+ We figured we would have to send him to Michael at Second Chance Meows (thank you Michael!) but we decided to also list him for adoption via normal routes (Petfinder and craigslist) and we actually found a wonderful home for him. The woman who is adopting Sumo saw him on petfinder. So i would really suggest going through the usual adoption channels, write a great bio, get great photos. And just work it the way you would any other adoption. Magic happpens. Be open to the possibility.
