Letter: Home needed for cats

Quoted from Wikipedia: “Feline leukemia virus (FeLV) is a retrovirus that infects cats. Cats can possibly pass the virus between themselves through saliva and close contact, by biting another cat, through a litter box or food dish used by an infected cat.” For the most part, infected cats lead a full, healthy life.

I go to the Rifle Animal Shelter once a week to love on the animals there. They currently have two of the most beautiful, loving cats who happen to be FeLV positive. These cats are in need of a loving home with no other cats or with other infected cats. (Why not adopt both?)

Infected cats pose no threat to humans or other animals but need to be kept indoors. I would take them in a heartbeat, but my awesome husband says two cats, three dogs and two horses is enough.

Don’t shop, adopt.
