n the last couple months we have seen an increase of FeLV+cats. This is from 2 separate home on different sides of Elkhorn and then a home in Whitewater.
What is FeLV?
The technical name is Feline Leukemia Virus. Like FIV it can weaken the cat's immune system and shorten their life.
Is FeLV contagious to other cats?
Yes it is! It's easily transmissible between cats by saliva - grooming each other, sharing the same dishes. Cats that are positive are looking for a home with no other felines. They are able to live with other animals such as dogs.
**There's a vaccine that may help the current cat in the home but you would need to reach out to your veterinary to discuss this.
Best placement for FeLV kitties?
·Someone able to keep the cat indoors only
·Taken to regular checkups - maybe even more than normal
How long can they live?
Cats can live anywhere between 2-5 years, maybe even longer.
It's not something the shelter sees often. Strangely we see more FIV cats enter our shelter. Currently with have babies that are 2 months old up to adults.
If you are willing to open your heart and home to these very special babies, please reach out! These kitties deserve a chance at a home just like anyone else.
