Hello my name is Lucy! I am a very sweet life experienced 9 year old snuggler. I love being petted and snuggled and
I will even talk to you! I was in a home with indoor/outdoor siblings and was surrendered
due to no fault of my own. My friends at Humane Fort Wayne performed a blood test on me
and found out I have a retrovirus called Feline Leukemia Virus or FeLV, commonly found in
indoor/outdoor feline friends. This virus is spread through close social contact such as
through saliva (mainly), nasal secretions, blood, urine, feces, and milk. For this reason I
MUST be the only cat, to prevent any other cats from getting the virus.
Another test was sent out to determine what stage of FeLV I might be in called a PCR test,
this test determined that I may have a regressive form of the disease, meaning as of right
now I am controlling my infection well. This test however, is only a snapshot in time, the
time the test was submitted. There is always the chance that my infection may turn into a
more serious progressive form due to me being immune compromised or weakened
immune system. Things such as my age, any stressors, or any illnesses could push me into a
more progressive form of the disease. My friends at HFW have already performed
bloodwork on me that I will be going home with.
Because of my virus, it is super important that I see a vet regularly, stay up-to-date on all
vaccinations, and that my overall health is monitored via routine bloodwork and vet visits.
This all sounds like a lot, but I am worth it. I may be older but I have a lot of love left to
Before I go home you will be able to speak with our medical staff to ask any further
questions and make sure we are a great fit for one another. Thank you so much.
