Feline Leukemia

Not to be confused with FIV Positive, Feline Leukemia Positive, or “FELV Positive” or “Feleuks” for short, is a much grimmer diagnosis. In our local stray cat population, we see maybe 1 or 2 cats out of 100 either test positive for Feline Leukemia or FIV. Cats testing positive for FIV tend to live nearly normal life spans and can often live with non-FIV cats with little risk of infecting them. Unfortunately, Feline Leukemia is a more life-limiting disease and it is also more easily transmitted to other cats.

We have had Feleuk Positive cats live anywhere from 6 months to 6 years past their intake date.  Most live at least two years. We currently have several currently healthy and very friendly Feleuk Positive cats available.  We have limited foster space for these cats because they need to be kept separate from other cats.

If you are looking for a special companion that very much needs their forever home, please consider one of our beautiful feline leukemia cats.
