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

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?
