We at the ECAS think that it should be Rome's turn to find a home! But not just any home will do for this special butterball. Rome is our only Feline Leukemia positive cat and he needs a home where he is either the only cat OR the other resident kitties are also Feleuk positive as this is a contagious disease to other felines that has no known cure. Rome came to us a couple winters ago looking like the loser from a Rocky Balboa fight! Unfortunately due to his life on the streets and lack of fighting skills this is likely how he contracted the disease. We have cared for Rome all these months watching his health and although he does have the disease his only clinical sign is that his eyes occasionally water and he is sensitive to the light some days. He has lived in his own enclosure only able to look at the other kitties enjoying their play time. So we think it's time for Rome to have a house to roam instead of a cage. If you are interested and able to give this big orange lover a home of his own please fill out an application at www.emmetcountyanimalshelter.org
