Skippy has tested positive for FeLV (Feline Leukemia Virus). FeLV cats have a virus that causes a weaker immune system – they do not have cancer! For the most part, felvies are just like any other cat. You could not pick one out of the crowd, and they generally do not require much additional care. Cats with FeLV typically have a shortened lifespan – we like to compare it to the lifespan of adopting a senior kitty, with the added benefit that they don’t have chronic senior health problems. Skippy is not contagious to people, dogs or other animals, but should live only with other FeLV+ cats.

Due to his FELV status, Skippy needs to be an only cat, only with other FELV positive cats, or quarantined (including litter boxes, food and water dishes and physical contact from the other cats).
