SPCA Wednesday! Meet Walnut

November 9, 2016

How many problems could a totally adorable, 3-month old kitten possibly have, you may be wondering. What could have already gone wrong in this little guy's

Well, nothing intentional, really. Poor guy has Feline Leukemia, and with much new research becoming available through Cornell and the Morris Foundation, we're learning that Feline Leukemia, while contagious, isn't exactly what we thought it was.

Walnut did test positive for leukemia, but like many other cats, can live a long, full life never showing signs of the illness. He's such a crazy, active kitten now, you'd never know anything was wrong if the tests weren't taken!

The perfect home for Walnut? Well, there are a few options. A single-cat household would be good, or a household with pets other than cats, or even a household with a cat that already has leukemia. Perhaps someone would adopt Walnut and then consider bringing a second leukemia-positive cat in, or some other kind of pet, to keep Walnut company! Many possibilities, and with Walnut's gorgeous face and charismatic personality, every possibility is worth serious consideration - he's hard to pass up!
