Lily: Courtesy Post
Domestic Short Hair
White and Tabby
1 year 6 months.
Lily is a sweet young lady who was rescued in Washington Heights. She's a friendly, well-adjusted cat who unfortunately is FeLV positive. Cats who are positive for the feline leukemia virus require special considerations. They can live with other species (dogs, bunnies and so on), but must be an only cat or live with other felines who have the disease. The virus infects felines only, but it spreads easily through casual interaction, including via food and water bowls, litter boxes, and through mutual grooming. There are feline leukemia vaccines, but they’re not 100 percent effective. Adult cats with FeLV can live until middle age or older. Best Friends Sanctuary had one who lived to be 21 years old!
