URGENT FOSTER NEEDED!
Meet Molly !!
We are in URGENT need of a 'cat-less’ foster home or a home with another FeLV+ cat/kitten for 10 week old FeLV+ Molly. Please help us find Molly a foster home. Here is Molly’s story:
Molly was rescued by us and originally tested negative for FeLV but was quarantined for 4 weeks in a foster home with no other cats as Molly's brother was very ill and positive for FeLV. Today Molly was re-tested and tested positive for FeLV. Now Molly needs a foster home. Because FeLV is contagious to cats, Molly needs a home with no other felines or a home with another FeLV+ cat/kitten.. FeLV is NOT contagious to dogs, people or other animals.
Molly currently is a very happy, active, healthy kitten who is just adorable. She deserves the opportunity to live out her life in a safe, secure, loving home. CATS will continue to provide everything needed for Molly to be fostered, including all necessary veterinary care for her entire life. We need to find Molly a safe placement.
FeLV is a retrovirus and a positive test result is only an indication of a retrovirus infection and not clinical disease. FeLV suppresses the immune system leaving the cat vulnerable to a variety of opportunistic diseases. Although there is no known cure, supportive care can improve the quality of life, health and longevity for cats who are positive. Supportive care includes a loving, stable, indoor home, good nutrition, reduced stress and prompt treatment.
Although a diagnosis of FeLV is emotionally devastating, it is important to realize that cats with FeLV can live normal lives for prolonged periods of time. Although I hate to quote statistics, the median survival time for a kitten with FeLV is 2.5 years although many have lived healthy lives much longer than that.
PLEASE help us find Molly a wonderful home to live out her life.
