PET OF THE WEEK is SPRINT!
Sprint is quite the special boy. He came into our care last May as a tiny baby kitten with his litter mates, who have all since been adopted. To be honest, we're all a little baffled that Sprint is still waiting.... He's beautiful, with a soft coat, and as sweet and engaging as they come. He loves to play and romp around (feather wand toys are a favorite!), and will also curl up on your lap and give kisses. We found out recently that Sprint needs a very special home. He tested positive for Feline Leukemia, although he shows no outward signs of illness. He can live a happy life - the vet cleared him for adoption. He does need to only reside with other FeLv cats or as the only cat. Feline Leukemia is not contagious to people or dogs, and Sprint would love to live with such friends. Even if you can't adopt Sprint, you can help him by sharing his photos and story with others. This playful and loving boy deserves the chance, and is sponsored for the entire adoption fee, making him available to go home at no cost. For more information on this amazing cat, please call the shelter at 252-475-5620.
