Hansel Domestic Shorthair Kitten Male in Worcester, Massachusetts

My story
Hi there! Hansel here! I'm part of a bonded male and female sibling pair (around 16 weeks old) with my sister Gretel. We were found as strays in Chelsea, MA without our mama. We love playing with each other, getting lots of pets and cuddles, and sleeping. Our foster parents call us “monkeys” because there’s no table too high or obstacle too big for us to get our little paws all over. There is one very sad piece of information about us that you should know. We both have FeLV (feline leukemia). This is a very serious condition and you can read more about it here:/departments-centers-and-institutes/cornell-feline-health-center/health-information/feline-health-topics/feline-leukemia-virusAlthough a diagnosis of FeLV can be emotionally devastating, it is important to realize that cats with FeLV can live normal lives for prolonged periods of time. The median survival time for cats after FeLV is diagnosed is 2.5 years. Once a cat has been diagnosed with FeLV, careful monitoring of weight, appetite, activity level, elimination habits, appearance of the mouth and eyes, and behavior is an important part of managing this disease. Any signs of abnormality in any of these areas should prompt immediate consultation with a veterinarian. Otherwise put, if we find a forever home where our parents are carefully monitoring us, it’s likely we can live full and healthy lives for longer periods of time. Currently, we’re in Gloucester with our foster parents. If you’d like to meet us please complete an adoption application on the Broken Tail Rescue website!
