Though a heartwarming nod to Austin’s favorite source for collective traffic commiseration, having “Evil” in this one-year-old cat’s name is a gross misnomer — just take a cursory glance at this cuddly boy’s face.
Meowpac was brought to APA! because he is living with the feline leukemia virus, or FeLV, and his previous shelter didn’t know how to proceed with him. For interested cat lovers, Meowpac is best suited for a house either without cats or only with other FeLV-positive felines.
This virus is contagious and can be transmitted through direct contact with other cats but cannot be passed on to humans, dogs or any other animals.
Unfortunately, cats with this virus have a median survival duration of about 2.5 years after diagnosis, according to the Cornell Feline Health Center. On the brighter side, 30% of cats exposed to the virus are able to successfully eliminate it, according to VCA Animal Hospitals.
