I know many of you follow Sue's babies over at Pitter Pats of Baby Cats, but just in case you don't, I wanted to share a little story with you.
Sadly, one of Sue's foster kittens, precious Myron Huggins, tested positive for FeLV (Feline Leukemia). Because of this, he couldn't get adopted out like all the other kitties do, to a traditional home.
We're very fortunate to have an amazing rescue, Purrfect Pals, located just north of us. They take in all sorts of special needs cats and kittens including those with FeLV, FIV, as well as seniors, barn cats, ferrel cats and just plain old healthy adoptable cats too. It's a special place run by some very compassionate folks.
When Sue first got Myron's news, she contacted Purrfect Pals and shortly thereafter, they found a place for him with one of their amazing foster families. The family sounds just awesome, and honestly, I can't imagine a more perfect place for this boy.
Rescues that take in cats and kittens with FeLV are few and far between. They're special places, and I just wanted to encourage you to support Purrfect Pals or a similar rescue in your area. There are so many ways to support. Financially, of course, but you can also donate supplies or your time.
If you have a second, please visit the Purrfect Pals site and check out the fine work they are doing. It's an amazing facility, and I'm so grateful they exist.
