Meet the Star litter: CeeCee, Nemo, Sage, Lilly and Rosie (from left to right going clockwise). These adorable babies love kitten mischief and being around people.

CeeCee loves to be held like a baby and will snooze for hours in your arms if you let her. Nemo is a lap napper who loves snuggling. Sage likes to climb up on your shoulder like a parrot and sit there while you walk around. Lilly loves to be held close to your heart to go to sleep. And last but not least, Rosie is a sassy sweetie who loves chasing balls and carrying them in her mouth.

When people see the Star litter, they melt. How could you not? But what they can't see is that they are FeLV+. And when potential adopters find out, they lose interest.

So what is FeLV exactly? FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus) is an incurable virus that lowers a cat's immune system and makes them more susceptible to other illnesses. Yes, FeLV+ cats have shorter lifespans, but there isn't any way to say just how long that time will be.

CeeCee, Nemo, Sage, Lilly and Rosie don't look or act sick. They are perfectly normal little babies. They absolutely love to play with toys and they enjoy spending their days chasing each other and snuggling up to humans. They are affectionate, curious, playful-and just about "purr-fect."

Keep in mind that cats with FeLV+ must be the only cat in the household or live with other cats with FeLV, as it is easily transmittable from cat to cat. FeLV is a very serious condition but FeLV+ cats are not necessarily more expensive in terms of medical care. We just ask that adopters maintain a relationship with their vet, to keep these babies happy and healthy.

Please help these sweet kittens. Here at BARCS, we believe that all animals deserve a chance, but we can't make that happen without you. If you are able to save these babies (one or two or all!), please email foster@barcs.org with a completed adoption application*. Once your adoption application has been approved, you will be able to set up a time to meet them.
