Cats looking for a good home

RSPCA Queensland’s Gympie Shelter still has eight cats that have cat flu looking for homes.

They are up for adoption at the vastly reduced price of $80.

“These cats have been treated and for all intents and purposes are now perfectly healthy,” shelter manager Rebecca Brazier said.

“The only problem is that they will always be carriers and therefore should not be allowed to make contact with other cats. It’s best if they become ‘inside’ cats and as such they can lead normal and enjoyable lives.”

Cat flu is a common disease in unvaccinated cats of all ages. The vast majority of cases of Cat flu are caused by one of two viruses: feline herpes virus type 1 (FHV-1) and feline calicivirus (FCV) FHV-1. Signs of Cat flu are similar to colds and flu in people.

Cat flu cannot be spread to humans and “carriers” can live to a normal age.
