Hi  Can I ask you how you were able to find someone to adopt the cat?  I have 
been trying to adopt my female FELV pos cat out (Chloe) for about 3 months now 
with no luck.  Where does the gentleman live?  I wonder if he would like to 
have a buddy for the cat he just adopted?  Dot

Hi,
 
We have someone interested in adopting our FeLV+ 
boy and it sounds like a great home, but the gentleman smokes. Does anyone know 
if this would be a considerable risk for a FeLV cat? I know smoke isn't good 
for 
humans or cats, but I'm wondering if the FeLV would complicate matters. Other 
than that, it sounds like a great home. He'd be a companion to a homebound 
gentleman who's looking for company.
 
Thanks for your time and input.
Cindy

 I appreciate the fact that the person is honest. He's applying through his

 voiced concerns regarding whether it would be a risk for Tumble due to his 
 FeLV+ status. I hadn't had any experience with smoking specific to FeLV+ 
 cats, so I thought I'd post here for input. 
 
 Based on personal experience, most people who have contacted me feel the risk 
 would be minimal. While I also value the thoughts of those who advised 
 against the adoption and I'd prefer a non-smoking environment, I have to 
 weigh that against the alternatives. Tumble is currently living in a basement 
 (a daylight basement with windows, but still, with limited human 
 interaction). The applicant is homebound due to health problems and is 
 looking for a 24/7 companion. He wants to adopt both Tumble and his companion 
 Cody; I'd love for these boys to stay together, as they came to me together 
 and are best buddies. The thought of them being beloved companions warms my 
 heart.
 
 So... it may not be perfect, but if they'll have good vet care and a loving 
 home, I think I'll go ahead with the adoption. Doing so will also free up 
 some space and allow me to help others that would otherwise be euthanized.
 
 Please send good thoughts that everything works out for what's best for the 
 boys.
 
 Thank you all again!

 Hi all,
 Well here is my 2 cents worth!
 I'm a smoker have been for 40 years. I do not smoke directly in front of 
 my cats/kittens. My personal kitties have never gotten sick or develop 
 cancers from smoke this includes my FELV kitties.
 I've been adopting cats/kittens for over 30 years to both non-smokers and 
 smokers. I have to say my smokers take better care of their kitties than 
 non-smokers that have small children. As I've been to their homes and seen 
 how clean they were. I've have repeat adopters as their kitties didn't die to 
 cancers. 
 Actually, lived fairly long lives. The kitties had the best in medical as 
 well.
 So I do not discriminate adopters that smoke.
 
 I agree with Susan Hoffman on her posting.
 
 My suggestion is if you don't want to adopt to people that smoke. Be up 
 front with them about it. 
 Also, if your a rescue/shelter put it in your rules and guidelines on 
 your applications that you don't adopt your kitties to smokers.
 This way the adopter doesn't feel bad or have their heart set on the 
 kitty. 
 Regardless whether the kitty is Negative, FELV, FIV, or both.

I hope he has a happy and loving home..I've a friend that smokes and she has 
two FeLV+ cats. There is no problem unless a cat develops a resp infection in 
which case she should be in an smokeless room_like any other cat with 
respiratory problems should be_ but other than that
I've never heard of smoke being a particular no-no for FeLVers.

Hi,

 

We have someone interested in adopting our FeLV+ boy and it sounds like a
great home, but the gentleman smokes. Does anyone know if this would be a
considerable risk for a FeLV cat? I know smoke isn't good for humans or
cats, but I'm wondering if the FeLV would complicate matters. Other than
that, it sounds like a great home. He'd be a companion to a homebound
gentleman who's looking for company.

 

Thanks for your time and input.

Cindy

cat's good health?

That is a good point.  Main thing to look for would he take good care of him 
and not mistreat him.

Re: [Felvtalk] FeLV+ and Cigarette Smoke

2011-09-21 Thread terrie
Hi all,
Well here is my 2 cents worth!
I'm a smoker have been for 40 years. I do not smoke directly in front of my cats/kittens. My personal kitties have never gotten sick or develop cancers from smoke this includes my FELV kitties.
I've been adopting cats/kittens for over 30 years to both non-smokers and smokers. I have to say my smokers take better care of their kitties than non-smokers that have small children. As I've been to their homes and seen how clean they were. I've have repeat adopters as their kitties didn't die to cancers. 
Actually, lived fairly long lives. The kitties had the best in medical as well.
So I do not discriminate adopters that smoke.

I agree with Susan Hoffman on her posting.

My suggestion is if you don't want to adopt to people that smoke. Be up front with them about it. 
Also, if your a rescue/shelter put it in your rules and guidelines on your applications that you don't adopt your kitties to smokers.
This way the adopter doesn't feel bad or have their heart set on the kitty. 
Regardless whether the kitty is Negative, FELV, FIV, or both.

unfortunately if you put on your application that you don't adopt to smokers 
many people would just lie about it. that's  why we don't put on the app that 
we don't adopt to people who declaw or let their cats outside.they say they 
don't, but you do the vet check  find out differently. second hand smoke is 
terrible for people  animals. If you smoke outside that's one thing, but not 
around animals or children.

What are your options...
Not everybody finds that people willing to adopt FeLV+ kitties are 
available...
A smoker may not be the best choice but I would except a smoker before
