The answer is yes. I would try to find adoptive homes but also look into sanctuaries. Obviously adoptive homes would be better and there's a chance. Not a very high chance they could get a home but at least being persian mixes they might can find a home with someone who has FeLV + cats. It will be hard finding them homes because most kittens (not all) that have FeLV will not live past 3 years old so finding someone who is willing to have their heart broken after just a short time will be hard.
Definitely test later on like Natalie said. Kittens normally can't get rid of the virus but it's always best to give them more time then repeat the test. In the mean time I would go ahead and put them up for adoption as a FeLV + kitten, if they're healthy right now that is. “I am not interested to know whether vivisection produces results that are profitable to the human race or doesn’t….the pain which it inflicts upon unconsenting animals is the basis of my enmity toward it, and it is to me sufficient justification of the enmity without looking further.” – Mark Twain Date: Fri, 30 Dec 2011 14:36:40 -0500 From: ch...@beyondbehaviors.org To: email@example.com Subject: [Felvtalk] New to group with 3 FeLV + 10 week old kittens Hi all, I’m new to the group. I do Cat rescue for a Northern Virginia group and took in 3 Persian Mix bottle babies (one female, two male) in November. They were all scheduled for adoption at 8 weeks and the first one out tested FeLV+. All adoptions fell through. They are gorgeous and affectionate. They are now 10 weeks old. All are ELISA + and one tested IFA +. It is assumed that they received FeLV from the missing mother. What are the chances of finding adoptive homes for them? Or should I be looking for a sanctuary?
