Tortoiseshell cats share a unique personality most often described as "tortitude." Torties are almost always very active and playful, with sassy, spunky, in-your-face attitudes. Adele is no exception. What does make Adele different from most Torties is that she is FeLV positive. Feline leukemia virus (FeLV) can suppress the immune system in susceptible cats. However, infected cats can live many years without issues, and not all infected cats will suffer from serious disease, so a diagnosis of FeLV is not as scary as it may seem initially.
Adele holds a special place in hearts of PAWS staff...shortly after her arrival she gave birth to a litter of kittens. Now that they're old enough to find their own homes, it's Adele's turn. Stop by PAWS to meet Adele or call 504-392-1601 for more information.
Act quickly to adopt Adele. Pets at this Shelter may be held for only a short time.
