UPDATE: Sadly, GINGER has tested positive for Feline Leukemia. She is at the Milo sanctuary now. It is impossible to accurately predict the life expectancy of a cat infected with FeLV. With appropriate care and under ideal conditions, infected cats can remain in apparent good health for many months to several years, although most succumb to a FeLV-related disease within two or three years after becoming infected. We have heard of FELV+ cats living long lives. There is no way to tell for certain. Certainly this young girl deserves a home for her life, however long that may be. YOURS???

; ; Poor Ginger was adopted as a kitten from the Oakland shelter, and now her adopter is being evicted, and cannot keep her. She is a sweet, affectionate cat. She has been living without other cat since she was adopted at three months of age.

; ; Foster bio: Ginger is a ten-month-old cat with beautiful yellow eyes, soft white fur, and orange rings on her tail. She was surrendered to Milo by someone who adopted her as a young kitten, but had to give her up when their home was lost. She was cautious when she first arrived, but warmed up after a day or two, and enjoys being held and petted. Her fur smells nice, and she grooms herself a lot. She loves chasing the laser pointer, or batting a cat dancer. Generally she is a mellow cat, and not the least bit destructive. She doesn?t claw the furniture, doesn?t extend her claws while she?s being held, and always uses the litter box. In her previous home, she was an only cat, and although she tolerates the other foster cats, she would do best as an only cat in her new home.' **(Now that we know she is FELV+, she will need a home with another FELV+ cat, or as an only cat.***

About Milo Foundation

About Our Rescue Group...

THE MILO FOUNDATION was named after an Australian Shepherd. Milo was five weeks old when Lynne Tingle discovered that her puppy was both deaf and blind. Despite concerns from friends and family, Lynne was determined to give Milo a good life.

It was a learning process for both Milo and Lynne, his "seeing eye person". Lynne developed a series of taps to communicate with Milo. A tap on the left or right flank would instruct Milo which direction to go. And a tap on the rear meant 'stop'. In the park, Milo's feet read the ground like Braille, where he bounded around in circles with his nose in the air, barking with joy.

Given a chance to live, Milo became a happy, beloved dog. The experience with Milo led Lynne to learn about other animals who needed a chance - abandoned and stray dogs and cats who fill city shelters - which led to the founding of the nonprofit no-kill sanctuary: The Milo Foundation.

After a full and happy life, Milo passed away in August of 1998. He was the perfect spirit and namesake for a sanctuary dedicated to saving the lives of creatures who deserved, like Milo, a chance at a good life.

Today, The Milo Foundation is an established 501(c)(3) nonprofit, no-kill organization providing an alternative for homeless pets throughout Northern California, through education, adoption services, and providing sanctuary for animals until permanent homes can be found. Founded in August of 1994, The Milo Foundation is located on two hundred and eighty-three acres in Mendocino County - offering lots of room for the animals to run and play. Milo houses cats, dogs, puppies and kittens - occasionally farm animals and other domestic creatures find their way to the sanctuary.
