This is the most appropriate badge I could find for Herman and Emma. Herman is FIV+ along with having Feline Leukemia. Emma just has Feline Leukemia. Adopting these two adorable kitties is the best thing I could have done for them and for me. Herman came along shortly after I lost my Mother and was feeling very much alone in the family home by myself. I was sad and lonely; he was sad and lonely; we were a perfect match. Other than his one bout of active Feline Leukemia, Herman has been perfectly healthy in the almost two years that he has lived with me. Emma came to live with us on March 1st of this year. Herman was showing some signs of being lonely while I was at work and the word came that a nearby shelter had a cat with Feline Leukemia who needed a home at once because the shelter didn't really have an isolation cage and all the foster homes were full. I went and picked her up the day after I found out about her and talked to the lady at the shelter. I can't say that they loved each other at first sight, but they get along well. There was never any real antagonism between them. Emma hasn't been sick at all. If you are thinking of adopting a first cat, please consider taking one with FIV or Feline Leukemia. These diseases are serious, but they are not an automatic early death sentence. There are treatments to help keep them healthy and research is coming up with new drugs to help or even cure the diseases.
This is Hal. A life on the streets of Albuquerque, NM, has left him with an aversion to dogs and children, a cauliflower ear and FIV. He really needs a quiet home and a loving human. Please consider adopting him. You can find out more about him here.http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/17712249?rvp=1
