I am already spayed, a special needs pet, and up to date with shots.
Hello, my name is Ursula I had a home once, but my humans weren’t very nice to me and took me to a business in Ripley and tossed me out into the weeds. Employees contacted OFF who came and got me. The first place they took me was to the vet to be spayed and FeLV tested. It was then that OFF and I got some bad news, my FeLV test was positive. FeLV can affect my immune system’s ability to fight off diseases and increase my chances of getting cancer. Lucky for me, it was OFF who had picked me up and I am currently otherwise healthy. If I had gone to the shelter and tested FeLV positive, I would have been….. *gulp*… I don’t even want to think of that. Lucky for me OFF doesn’t believe in that. Being that I am otherwise currently healthy, I may still have a nice long life ahead of me and OFF believes I should be allowed to live out that life no matter how long it may be. However, though FeLV cannot be transmitted to humans, it can be transmitted to other cats. Therefore I have to live separate from FeLV negative kitties. In foster care that means living in isolation in my own room. I get very limited time with my foster mommy. Since I can’t leave my room, I don’t have any kitty friends and can’t join the other cats on my foster mommy’s lap for a nap or curl up next to her in bed. I hate that. I just love getting attention and pets so much. I have been living in this isolation in foster care for a little while now since OFF wanted re-do my tests to make sure my first test wasn’t a false positive and make sure my FeLV was not active. They have now cleared me to find a forever home though! I am so excited to think that I could have a loving family in a home where I wouldn’t be in a room by myself. They say it has to be an extra special home though. I need a home in which either there are no other cats or the other cats are also FeLV positive to keep me from infecting other cats. I also need to lead an indoor only existence. That sounds good to me though as long as I get lots of love and attention. Can you please please help me find this special home?
We are a group of volunteers who formed in August 2013 to address the issue of homeless felines in our county. As of April 2016, we have done TNR on 896 community cats. As a natural progression of our program, we also provide fostering and adoptions of domestic cats and kittens. All of our foster felines are in private homes, not a shelter environment. We can help arrange transport if needed.
Come Meet Our Pets...
By appointment only. Foster kitties are in multiple locations. All attempts will be made to get your possible adoptees in one location for a meet 'n greet as quickly as possible.
Our Adoption Process...
We offer adoptions based on donations comparable to the vetting that we have completed on the kitty. Spay or neuter is mandatory. If the kitty you choose has not yet been s/n, we require a $50 refundable deposit when you have completed the spay or neuter.
