Description:
Spazz is a playful loving cat who has been with us since March. Spazz has FeLV(Feline Leukemia Virus). FeLV is one of the most common infectious diseases in cats, affecting between 2% and 3% of all cats in the United States. The virus is shed in saliva, nasal secretions, urine, feces, and mild of infected cats. 
It is the most common cause of cancer in cats, may cause various blood disorders, and may lead to a state of immune deficiency that hinders a cats ability to protect itself against other infections.
During the early stages of infection, it is common for cats to exhibit no signs of disease at all. Over time, however (months or years) an infected cats health may progressively deteriorate or may experience repeating cycles of illness and relative health.
The median survival time for cats after FeLV is diagnosed is 2.5 years. Although there is no cure, and the sound of FeLV can be scary, it is important to know that cats with FeLV can live normal lives for prolonged periods of time.
Spazz deserves to live in a loving home for his remaining years. He will need to be an only cat or with other cats who have FeLV such as our adorable 4 month old kitten Cabbage Patch.
