Hi.  I have been reading so much input from everyone.  It is really very eye 
opening.  O.K.  Perhaps the cats can be mixed.  However, as I said,the trio 
don't get along. I would still need to place Chloe (FELV).  I would love to see 
her in a home with just one other cat, so she can bond.  Probably an FELV cat.  
So, if you think you can help, i would just love it.  I am so at a quandry what 
to do.  
She loves my other cat, Lion (FIV).  They were from the same clan.  However, I 
just truly am concerned about mixing the two together and placing together.  
I may, however, consider this.  They were the "Dynamic Duo".  Playing and 
licking and sleeping together.  I am open for any help anyone can offer to 
place Chloe and/or possibly Chloe/Lion.  I can send pictures.  They are both 
cute.  Dotty

As it appears you really don't want to keep this cat perhaps you can
let us know where you live so we can try and help?
