With only four days left, we are $26,000 from our goal to secure $100,000 in matched donations from Maddie’s Fund. To make sure we succeed, an anonymous donor has agreed to double the next $10,000 in donations, transforming $10,000 into a total of $40,000 over the next 48 hours!
Ziggy, my Cat Town cat, literally leaps from across the room to sit on my shoulder just about every day. He was a not-so-secret ingredient at Cat Town’s Adoption Center: a “starter cat” who would teach less confident cats how to be brave. They watched his example and quickly followed his lead — playing with toys and rubbing up against visitors’ legs.
Every year, shelters and rescues across the country take in cats with Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV). Although minds are changing around FeLV, many organizations still believe no one will adopt these cats.
That’s because feline leukemia is unpredictable. Half the cats with FeLV live long, symptom-free lives. The other half succumb to lymphoma —and there’s no way of knowing whether they’ll have years or days to live. Even with that uncertainty, these cats deserve every chance at finding a loving home.
