Andromeda is FeLV+ (Feline Leukemia Virus), which causes a weakened immune system and requires special care. APA! provides some medical assistance after adoption. Cats with FeLV typically have a shortened lifespan. Andromeda is not contagious to people or dogs, but should live only with other FeLV+ cats.

FeLV+ (Kittens up to 6 months of age)
Andromeda has tested positive for Feline Leukemia (FeLV). It is possible for kittens six months and younger to shed this virus completely and test negative, so Andromeda will be re-tested for FeLV at her six month birthday, at which time a definitive diagnosis can be assured. Until then, Andromeda should live with no other cats or kittens to ensure the virus is not passed. Andromeda is available for adoption now to adopters who can accommodate a feline leukemia positive, or negative, cat as she is not yet of age to have a definitive test.

All APA! cats are fully vetted, spayed or neutered, and have updated vaccines and a microchip. Lifetime support is offered by our Cat Behavior Team.
