smoke still needs a home…

Remember Smoke, the sweet little kitty that my friend Rich rescued? She turned out to have FeLV, and so he’s not able to keep her without risking his other rescued cat, Beanie.

Rich has started a facebook group to try to spread the word about Smoke, and he’s also got a lot more info and cute pics on a webpage he created for her.

The FeLV means she needs to be an only cat, or in a home with other FeLV positive cats, and that is what makes finding her a forever home such a challenge.

If you could help pass the word by emailing her page around, or joining Rich’s “Find Smoke a home” facebook group, or both, it would be much appreciated.

Rich and Smoke are in NYC, but he’d be willing to drive her just about anywhere, so don’t let distance factor into the equation. Smoke is a very sweet and loving cat. Living in a bathroom, as she is now, is better than many of her other alternatives and Rich does everything he can to make it good for her, but ideally she will have a chance to live freely in a home, with all the attention that would come from a loving home where she could safely interact with everyone. With luck and perseverance, maybe we can make that happen for her.

Pics of Smoke in this post are from Rich’s gallery.

    Thank you so much for posting this. I am sitting on the bathroom floor on a towel with her cuddled up next to my thigh and we appreciate the effort.

    I really hope you’re able to find her a home. It breaks my heart that such a sweetheart doesn’t have a place already!

    Rich, Smoke is so lucky to have you watching out for her. I have spread the word earlier, and with this reminder/update, I will do so again. I hope she will soon have a forever home.

    Kay, thanks so much for doing what you can! I hope we can find her a home. All we can do is keep telling people about her and the situation and hope that we’ll happen to mention it to the right person!

    I hope Smoke is able to find a home soon. It’s great that she is being taken care of so well, she’s precious.

    She definitely deserves a wonderful home!

    I was talking to a friend this weekend, and we were lamenting that all the people most likely to be willing to take her already had cats, and thus couldn’t. Kate was saying that if she’d realized before adopting her three what a hard time these FIV and FeLV cats have finding homes, she’d have dedicated herself and her home to adopting them.
