Meet Cowboy

Say hello to Cowboy. Cowboy is a delightful cookies-and-cream mix of black and white fur, with decadent yellow eyes and a rich, deep purr. The three-year-old domestic medium-hair mix was brought to the shelter as a stray this past February. He had been found wandering alone in the hills above Nisbet.

Cowboy is sweet, sweet, sweet. Just look at his video and check out his hearty purrs and head rubs. Our staff love him. Unfortunately, staff interaction is limited because he is positive for Feline Leukemia (FeLV). FeLV is a feline virus that affects a cat's immune system and bone marrow. The virus is typically spread from infected cats to non-infected cats through close personal contact, usually involving saliva. It can be spread through grooming, shared food bowls, bites and other forms of close personal contact. Humans cannot catch FeLV and the virus doesn't live long outside of a cat host, so a FeLV-positive cat can be housed in a separate room from a FeLV-negative cat as long as food and water bowls are not shared.

In general, cats with FeLV have weaker immune systems. While there is no cure for FeLV, most cats live normal, though significantly shorter lives.

All that being said, Cowboy will make anyone a fantastic pet. He enjoys being picked up and held, petted, and brushed. His finder brought him inside for a bit and he did very well with her children. He is quiet and reserved, simply enjoying people and life.

Cowboy deserves the best that life can give - including a forever family! He cannot wait to cuddle into your lap and say thank you a million times over with his purrs. If you are interested in giving Cowboy a second lease on life, come on down and ask at the front desk. They will take you back for a meet and greet with the dear fellow.
