Cats for Adoption: Can You Give Four FeLV Kittens a Home?

Fin, Elijah,
Fin, Elijah, Nicklaus and Kol

Kopy Kat Sanctuary recently rescued four sweet, playful, happy gray kittens. Unfortunately they tested positive for Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV). Tests at that age are not always reliable, so they will be tested again at intervals. They are now about ten weeks old and are all boys: Elijah (white/gray), Fin (super fuzzy gray), Nicklaus (runt/gray), and Kol (medium/gray).

From Kopy Kat Sanctuary:

We are looking for the PURFECT home(s). It is hard to say how long they will live but we would love for them to have the absolute best lives possible. We would like to adopt the in pairs to a home with no other cats and some knowledge of FeLV. For these kittens to strive to their fullest potential they will require a superior diet, supplements, a clean environment, lots of love and the financial means to provide this for their short little kitty lives.

Because the kittens may be infectious with FeLV, they are being fostered at a home with two chihuahuas—watch them in the last video below! Their foster person adds, “They are the most adorable cats ever.” I’d take her word for it!

They like people just a little bit…

Kitteh is watchin’ you! And he loves the camera and purrs so nicely!

Brothers get together to “fix” that camera!

And just watch them play and chase their tails!

With their doggie fur brothers.

About Kopy Kat Sanctuary

Kopy Kat Sanctuary
Kopy Kat Sanctuary

Kopy Kat Sanctuary is located in Delmont, PA, east of Pittsburgh. They are “a group of cat-loving women trying to improve the lives of a few felines” in their own homes and out of their own pockets as well as helping those in need with low-cost spay and neuter to help reduce the populations of homeless cats. They have no shelter, but have saved many lives. Visit their website for more information or visit their Facebook page. And if you can’t adopt or foster, make a small donation to help this very small sanctuary.

And check out a few of the other beautiful cats and kittens they have for adoption, including this full-bred and papered blue-point Birman cat!

“Beautiful Skyler is a 5 year old pedigreed Blue point Birman. Sweet as they come, a real vecro kitty. She is very sad after being relinquished but we are trying to work through that. She was just dropped off at Petco (2/10) by her owner who said, “I don’t want her anymore…. She bought Skyler from a breeder as a kitten. She will go to to her foster today. We love her already! She just melts in your arms when you hold her but she will run and hide as soon as you let her down. Her pic does not do her justice at all. She’s got a clean bill of health and all her vaccines were updated last night (2/11/14). If you are interested or know someone who has been wanting a Birman please have them message us for more info and an adoption application. Thank you!”

Can’t adopt? Foster! Can’t foster? Donate or volunteer.

There are so many ways you can help cats who need homes and care. You may not have room to adopt another cat, but can foster a cat or kitten for a few weeks. If not that, you can volunteer at a shelter or with a rescue, or donate. You do this because you love your cat, and by doing so you help all cats. No matter which of these actions you take, you help to save a life, and make life better for all cats.

  • Adopt one of the cats I’ve posted here, or from any shelter or rescue near you, or from Petfinder, to open up a space for another cat to be rescued and fostered.
  • Offer to foster cats or kittens for a shelter or rescue near you.
  • Volunteer at a shelter or rescue.
  • Find a group of volunteers who work with homeless cats and help them with their efforts.
  • Donate to a shelter or rescue near you.

If you can foster kittens or adults cats to help prepare them for a forever home, please run to your nearest shelter and find a cat who needs you! Anyone can help with this effort at any level, even if all you do is donate to a shelter or rescue so they can help to pay for the food or medications needed for their foster, or the spay/neuter/veterinary care during a clinic.

    Deborah is right, there is treatment available for these sweet kitties! It isn’t a cure, but the LTCI treatment by T-Cyte has been shown to be effective in helping FeLV positive cats live long, healthy lives. http://tcyte.com/

      I hope so too, Nancy–they are just a bunch of cute kittens and don’t deserve that fate.
