A few months ago we took in a female cat. She has FLV. Does anybody know of a place or a person that will adopt?

This is the $60,000 question. It's said that FeLV is spread through urine, feces, saliva, etc. from one cat to another. If your kitty likes to wrestle with others and bite them in play, it could be spread to that cat. Her litter box needs to be kept separate. It's like human AIDS virus. It's possible to have a FeLV infected cat in a household with uninfected cats as long as precautions are taken and the owner knows what needs to be done. Unfortunately, people belive that adopting a FeLv cat is a death sentence for their other cats when it's not. You need to enlist the help of a local rescue or shelter to help you adopt out this baby. If you foster her, they will be more than willingo to help you adopt her out. Good luck and let us know what happens!
