Joey and his siblings were rescued from the Miami Dade pound by a small rescue group. To their horror Joey and his sister both tested FELV+
Most small rescues do not have a facility, they use foster homes to house their animals. FELV+ animals tie up a space that now can not be used to save adoptable animals. And sadly for FELV+ animals, there are not many homes out there for them. They had to find a place and fast for her or make a heart breaking decision.
They had him and his sister flown to us. They are super super sweet crazy kittens.
8/4/11 Sadly, he passed away from FIP. Poor little guy got dealt a horrible deck of cards.
