Arrival Story: This cat and its littermate Brooke were severely neglected by their adopter. Brooke and Badger were picked up by Contra Costa A.C. as strays with severe wounds and required quite a bit of medical care.
Lives Remaining: 7 of 9
Brooke and Badger can be the life of the party, keeping you entertained with their kittenish antics throughout the day. They are a loving pair of kitties who enjoy human company as well as the company of each other. These two kitties have been through a lot together and would love to go home together.
Badger tested positive for feline leukemia when he re-entered our shelter. He also had extensive wounds and likely was exposed to the virus from being attacked by another cat. His wounds are now healed. Confirmatory tests indicate that Badger is trying to clear the feline leukemia virus from his system and will likely test negative within the next few months. He is available for adoption with his companion cat, Brooke (who is feline leukemia negative but was already exposed to FeLV at the same time as Badger, so it is safe for them to be together). Currently these cats should not go to a home with any other cats, but if Badger eventually tests negative, it will be safe to introduce him to other cats (aside from his sister, Brooke).
