Dido is a young kitten, approximately 13 weeks old, who loves to romp and play. She is sweet and loving with a lot of joy in her heart. Even though Dido tested positive for the Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV), she is capable of living a full, healthy life. This virus can suppress her immune system, potentially making her more susceptible to other infections. While there is no cure for FeLV, with regular veterinary care, cats can go on to live a relatively healthy and long lifestyle. The disease can be transmissible to other cats, but not to people or other species. Ideally, FeLV-positive cats should either live with other cats who have tested positive for FeLV to reduce the risk of spreading the disease or in a single cat household. Dido is currently snuggled up with another FeLV-positive cat, Aeneas, and they are so sweet together. Consider opening your heart and home to this sweet and wonderful kitten!
Adoption fees for cats are usually $95 and $50 for the second cat when adopting two together. This includes a basic medical exam, spay or neuter surgery, microchip implantation, rabies and other vaccinations, intestinal parasite check, a heartworm test and deworming.
