Hi!! My name is Poppy and I live at the Cozy Cat Cottage. Unfortunately, I have tested positive for FELV. At most shelters this would be a death sentence, but at Cozy Cat the good humans here believe all cats should have a chance. While there still isn’t a cure for FELV and my future is a little unknown I still believe that a very special human will give me a very special home. With FELV I could live one year or I could live 20 years. FELV is an autoimmune disease and contagious to other cats, but not dogs or humans. I will need to go to a home with other FELV cats, a home with no cats or a home with dogs. I am super loving and just want a lap to sit in. While I understand you might be taking a chance with your heart, I also believe it’s really that way with any kitty. We never know how long we will have, but I just want to know what it’s like to have a home and to be loved.
