Beautiful Leche was taken into Tree House spay/neuter clinic by a volunteer to be fixed and returned to her Humboldt Park colony three years ago, yet the elderly woman caring for her decided to keep her in her attic instead. Leche spent much of the last three years of her life in solitude. She was brought regular meals, but sadly received little contact with people or cats. As well meaning as her caregiver was, one can only imagine that life with her colony would have been far less lonely. When her caregiver’s health took a turn for the worse she reached out to the volunteer who helped TNR the colony. Together they decided it best to admit Leche to Tree House since she was no longer an outdoor cat. Leche is doing well and seems very happy to be surrounded by so many friends, kitty and human. She is still a little shy, but growing more accustomed to being doted on everyday.
Leche has tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), which is an immune system deficiency in cats. It can be harder for cats like her to fight off infection, but if she is given proper preventative care, she can live a long and healthy life. Adopting an FIV positive cat from Tree House comes with a lot of benefits. Our adoptions staff would be happy to provide you with more info about Leche's condition. Otherwise, Leche is one happy camper that would love a home to call her own.
