Gose was rescued by animal control along with her two brothers (Ale and Kolsch) and two sisters (India and Lager). At intake, the two boys tested positive for feline leukemia (FeLV+) so further testing of the litter was in order. All five of the kittens have tested positive for FeLV on at least one test.
Gose (pronounced “goes-uh”) loves to climb and perch on a willing shoulder. She enjoys being pet and does not mind being picked up for some extra snuggles. She is mostly black with a small white patch on her chest and another on her belly that distinguishes her from her sister, India.
Gose is a very active kitten who runs, jumps, climbs, and plays with abandon. She is particularly fond of climbing so asks that you provide a tall scratching post or cat tree for her entertainment. Gose and her litter mates are thriving, healthy kittens. Because of their FeLV+ status, they should only be housed with other FeLV+ cats, dogs, or other non-feline pets. Ideally, we’d love to see her adopted with a sibling, but she is the most independent of the litter.
You can learn more about what it means to care for a FeLV+ cat here. FeLV+ cats typically live 2-4 years beyond their diagnosis or longer.
