Re: [Felvtalk] Questions about placing an FeLV cat

2011-01-17 Thread Beth
I don't know of anyone. The sanctuaries I used to know of have all been 
closed after it was discovered they had death camp conditions. Basically 
large-scale hoarding situations. People now seem to refer everyone they hear 
about to me just because I have a few. Nothing I can do. I just try to convince 
the people to keep them. The most recent lady who was refered to me has so 
fallen in love with the cat she has found a sympathetic, who amazingly has told 
her she can keep the cat with her other cat. I keep trying to tell people this 
 it has finally worked!
Please be so very careful  check out thoroughly anyone who offers to take 
them. I suggest you call the local Dept of AG  Animal Control  make sure 
there are no complaints. Also check references of vets they use  maybe local 
rescue groups.

I'm not sure who to ask about this, or if this message is able to be put in the 
daily mailings, but:

Does anyone happen to know any responsible groups or people in the south 
(preferably in Louisiana) that take in FeLV positive cats? I've been rescuing 
cats and kittens at a house, and one of the kittens has turned up FeLV 
positive. I have a feeling that the others will be too since they all share the 
same water source and cuddle up together outside, so I'd like to find out where 
I can try to place these guys after/if I am able to tame them.

The girl I have right now is spayed and is the sweetest little girl. She is 
about 5-6 months old, incredibly playful and loves to curl up on me at night, 
and give me kisses! I have 4 other cats that are negative right now, so I 
cannot keep her- even if she were negative, I would not be able to keep her. 
Can anyone please offer me any suggestions or group names to begin with? I'd be 
more than happy to make a small donation to a responsible group/person who 
would take her!

If you can aford it, keep them.  I would.  I have 2 felv pos cats out of 7 and 
they are actually the healthiest (?) of the bunch.  Have had them in mixed 
group for going on 4 years and my vet says that as long as the others are 
vaccinated, everyone gets good food, shelter and love, there should be no 
problem.  And so far, he is right.  Tell people not to be afraid of the word 
positive, give the cats a chance and the love you get back is more than worth 
it.

We have had great good luck on this list adopting out FELV+ cats to
individual adopters.   Emily adopted Tofu and she is immaculately cared for
and in the best situation of all, a real home and not a sanctuary.

BFAS, much as I hate them, has openings at times for FELV cats.  They do
keep the cats in good condition but I disagree vehemently with their
practices and would not send my worst enemy there, let alone a cat!

Oh, also Crash's, where Sherry volunteers, seems great - run by a vet -
however I believe they only take cats from the state of Michigan - Sherry
correct me if I am wrong?
