Lilo (first four photos) was found as a newborn stray on a farm. Luckily for her, her litter was found and brought into a rescue. Unfortunately, Lilo tested positive for feline leukemia (FeLV), a highly contagious virus which attacks the immune system and can lead to death. Most cats testing positive for FeLV are euthanized immediately in a shelter environment. But Lilo had a guardian angel who pulled her in time and brought her into a rescue situation, and she eventually made her way to Furever Home. Here, she can live a happy and full life for whatever amount of time she has left. Because all our cats are FeLV+, Lilo is not only safe, but has friends to play with in a family environment.
