I SAVE FELV CATS
WHO AM I?
I save Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV) cats from euthanization
Unfortunately information about the FeLV virus is very skewed and misunderstood. Due to this, FeLV cats are not successfully adopted. And a lot are euthanized for no reason. It is a false belief that these cats are in pain and will live a life of suffering. This is an absolutely false statement!
I do not work with volunteers and I fund everything myself.

DID YOU KNOW?
It is estimated that 30% of sick cats are at high risk of infection compared to 2% of healthy cats infected by the FeLV virus.
FeLV is diagnosed through a screening tool called ELISA, which is used to detect a protein component of the virus – P27.
The FeLV vaccine is only 85% effective. This is why FeLV cats should not be placed with healthy cats.

A few years ago I bought a book from Dr. Martin Goldstein, titled “The Nature of Animal Healing”. We had just received a male cat who was FeLV+ and consistently fighting infections. I was at my wits end, because nothing we did was helping him. He was constantly at the vet and he was slowlyContinue reading “The Liver Juice for FeLV Cats”
WANT TO FOSTER INSTEAD?
Maybe you want to foster instead? Fostering is very helpful because it helps me to build a team that will care for the cats. In addition a lot of our cats come from bad backgrounds and they have not had any socializing and fosters can definitely help to socialize these cats. Unfortunately, I don’t also have the time to give each and every cat the one-on-one they need, because I spend most of my days cleaning litter boxes, washing blankets, driving the cats to the vet, feeding. I do however make sure to give them some playtime each and every day. Play time is so important to stimulate their senses, and provide them with exercise, especially since they cannot go outside.
If you would like to foster an FeLV cat, you can be guaranteed that I will support you every step of the way. Normally fostering is for a short period, because they need to be brought back to the shelter so that they do not forget their environment and their playmates. If they are away for too long, they will not be able to be reintegrated into the shelter. However even if it is for a short period, I do see a lot of improvement in my cats when they come back. It is so important to introduce cats to new environments and new people, because they will regress into scared cats, and this is especially not good for FeLV cats because stress in these cats will lower their immune system and put them at risk for health issues.
