SAFE 2/21/18 POSSIBLY FELV POSITIVE — Meet CJ: Can you say “stinkin’ cute”?? Because you will the instant you lay eyes on CJ! This pint sized boy reportedly tested positive for FeLV at a private vet. When retested in the shelter, his results came back as a faint positive. Our medical team recommends retesting CJ again when he is older to get a definitive answer on whether he is or is not FeLV+.
