Can't someone foster the cat - all they would need is some extra space in a
garage, basement, bathroom..until a home could be found! Surely, there must
be someone..

Subject: [Felvtalk] FELV+ Emergency in Austin, TX


Hey folks, got an emergency with a possible FELV+ cat in Austin, Texas.
He's had one snap test (and that's with the felv/fiv/heartworm test, which
we know there are a lot of false +s with).  There is no one to hold him for
a confirmatory IFA.  

Someone wrote me asking for help, this is her description of him:

"He is slated to be euthanized at 5pm today. This boy is very affectionate,
loving to be held, petted, scratched, etc. He was even purring while being
petted at the counter at the vet's office with all the strange scents and
animal noises going on! 

He's pretty sick at the moment. Vet says he's extremely anemic. That's why
he hasn't been eating much. And the heat has exacerbated the problem since
he's been an outdoor cat. Vet also says the condition is treatable, but the
treatment makes him very infectious. So what he needs is an indoor home
either in a one-cat household or in a house where all the cats are feline
leukemia positive. 

It's breaking my heart because he's such a sweetie. I'm hoping to find
someone who can provide a home for this baby so he won't have to be

I've asked for pics & etc

I also asked for an extra day which is hopefully being negotiated.  I know
someone on this list has room for a wonderful survivor of this horrible
Texas heat and drought.

I've gotten some wonderful kitties placed as a result of this list (just ask
their moms) so am hoping we can pull a rabbit out of a hat one more time!
