ARTURO needs an immediate foster or adoption family!!! This big, handsome, affectionate, hunk of burning love has experienced a lot in his 3ish short years.  Once someone's pet, he found himself fending for food and shelter. After who knows how long, he luckily found a human and her colony of cats.  This wonderful woman, who cares for a senior and started caring for the senior's/neighborhood's yard cats, contacted CatVando because this boy had an injured rear leg.*   Arturo was off to the vet where his abscess was drained and flushed. At CatVando, Arturo is on medication and healing. In this time, we've learned how incredibly affectionate he is.  Today we also learned he is feline leukemia positive.  A tough sentence for any kitty and to be safe, he needs to go into a home with no pets. His leg will be healed in a couple of weeks at end of January 2020 and then onto home with humans to love him! ARTURO NEEDS A HOME ASAP! There has been some research on mixing positive and negative cats - we're doing research and will update if we find anything different.  If you have any information as to help us find his new home or know of someone who is ready to open their home to him, please let us know ASAP by emailing us at catvandotnr@yahoo.com.  Please help us find this boy a home soon.   In the meantime, this hunk of love has to stay in a 3' x 4' cage where he will have to remain until he finds his home.  We can't mix him with our free roaming cats.   Feline Leukemia positive cats cannot pass any of their illness to human or dogs.  Feline Leukemia + cats don't need to be treated any differently than one that's negative.  One of the differences is that when they get sick, it's harder to get them healthy.  Many live long lives with no issues.  show less

Tri is very shy, demure and soft like a bunny.  She came to us when our vet called to ask if we could help.  An elderly woman brought her in when she got her leg mangled in a car engine in December of 2011.  Tri was a feral the woman was caring for in her yard.  She couldn't afford the fee for amputation so the vet asked for our help.  We get a discount so after telling the vet never to do this again (we're a small budget agency depending solely upon donations), I said we would cover the fee at our discounted rate.  Once we said yes, she said Tri would have to stay for 10 days for rabies watch, she bit one of the techs, could we cover that............  yes.  With 2 yes's, she went for the 3rd - could we take her.  The woman was very elderly, had 2 house cats and couldn't take this young girl in and she couldn't go back out.  She's been with us ever since.  She hid for the first year, the second she came out more and continues to show herself and integrate into the house.  She continues to be shy but has her favorite people,  she will circle their feet and allow for petting, even flipping over on her back for belly rubs.  It's not always people who are here a lot, one of our volunteers, rarely here, came in and Tri was immediately attracted - you never know who she's going to pick.  I can only pet her when I'm feeding canned food. show less
