My neighbors have four adorable kittens that needs loving homes. Here’s the scoop from their Facebook page:
“We are once again looking for forever homes for these kittens. Four of the rescued kittens we thought we gave away are back home with us (3 orange/white guys & 1 tortoiseshell gal). They went to homes that had other cats, but the kittens turned out to be positive for FeLV. FeLV+ cats should not live with FeLV negative cats (for fear of virus transfer). Sooooo, a perfect home is one that has an existing FeLV+ cat or one that wants new INDOOR-ONLY kittens.

“FeLV+ cats should not be outdoor cats. I don’t know much about cats, but someone who explained it to me likened it to the AIDS virus. No other animals/people can catch it. Cats can only transfer it to each other by cat-to-cat fluid transfer. This “auto-immune” virus only lives for a couple of hours once any fluid (saliva, urine, feces, etc.) leaves a cat. Apparently a cat may be a carrier, but may not ever be affected by the virus. Their environment should to be extra protective (indoors) and their food high quality to live a good long life.”
If you’d like one (or three or four) of these kittens, call Pat and Deb at (231) 223-4633.
A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper. Because the Gazette is mainly reader-supported, I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks my way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP.
