(Philadelphia, Pa, USA)
Hello…..My name is Alissa and about a week ago I took in a stray cat I found wandering in a seedy area of the city (Philadelphia) so I took him home and separated him from my other cats until I had a chance to get him tested for diseases.
I asked the neighbors if they knew anything about the cat, and they said that he was abandoned when his house burned down and his owners left without him.
He’s very sweet and affectionate, loves to play and sit on laps, and is generally a great cat.
His also never fails to use the litter box I gave him. I took him to PAWS yesterday for his check up, and even though he is not symptomatic at all, he tested positive for feline leukemia.
They gave him his shots up to date, dewormed him, and told me that he’s only about a year old.
They said he could live a long and happy life if I could find someone to adopt him. Now that I know he’s FeLV positive I can’t mix him with my own three cats and he’s staying in an extra bedroom in my apartment.
Because of my other three cats, I would be very happy if someone would agree to foster him
for me while I continue to search for a permanent home.
I’m afraid that finding him a home will be almost impossible now, but I cannot keep him and since the potential for a great quality of life remains and he is feeling well and happy, I certainly don’t want to put down such a young, amazing cat.
I’m very worried about what will happen to him. I’ve named him Harry, at least for as long as he’s with me. I would greatly appreciate it if someone would give this kitty a chance. He is a genuinely wonderful cat. Thank you!
I also have a cat Zoe( though he is a male, my friend I got him from thought he was a female ) who was positive
for feline leukemia and shows no symptoms… I would love another cat and wouldn’t dare to get one who doesn’t have feline leukemia..please contact me if he is still available..thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
