Pet of the Week

 Week of December 5th, 2018

Meet our Pets of the Week, Panther (#195218), Rocket (199252), and Ducky (#195460)! All three of them recently came back from foster care and they’re all waiting to find their homes. Panther, like the rest of his foster siblings, is a 7-month old kitten that is very inquisitive, loves to explore, and greets everyone that comes through the house. Like him, his brother, Rocket is also a little adventurer himself. He has a great personality and is the only kitten we know who loves to watch Dr. Phil. Their little sister, Ducky on the hand is a little more laid-back. She is first and foremost, a shoulder cat that is easy-going, and loves to snuggle. She loves giving head hugs and kisses and enjoys following laser lights.

All three of them are fun and loving kittens but it should be noted that they have FeLV, the Feline Leukemia virus, a viral infection that affects their immune system and bone marrow. It is a virus that typically spreads through heredity or through close personal contact. However, humans cannot catch this virus. Also, a FeLV+ cat living with a FeLV- cat is also not totally impossible through the help of precaution and vaccination. Panther, Rocket, and Ducky may have a shorter lifespan than most cats but they are still very much capable of having happy and well-lived lives. We hope that you look beyond their disability and see past their history and get to know their story and help us find them their homes for the holidays!

All three kittens are located at our main shelter, come in today and meet them! #saveoneuntiltherearenone #hsoyuma
