This is Danny. He is 1 or 2 years old, loves to lounge on laps and near his favorite kitty scratcher post. Danny is a very big fellow, both in build and a little bit of extra pudge. He loves to be brushed and to sleep in bed with his people…
And Danny has Felv, which is also known as Feline Leukemia Virus. FeLV is NOT contagious to humans or other animals. It only effects cats.
This disease means that he will need a very, very special permanent home, or foster home. He must be an indoor only cat. He can live with another cat that is also FeLV positive, or in a home with dogs or other kinds of pets. Danny will need regular check ups with a vet, strict flea and parasite control, and a high quality diet.
FeLV can be managed successfully for a number of years, and even though he is currently healthy, eventually Danny will succumb to the disease. His family will need to have extra big, strong hearts, to give a piece of to this special boy.
