About Wazoo

Distance: 1,191 Miles
DOB appx 8/15/08. DSH brown mackeral tabby, neutered male. This is a cutie patootie, and super friendly.    Wazoo LOVES attention .....and canned food too :)He parks himself next to you on the couch, and adores attention. He'll roll over while you pet him so you can rub his tummy too!Here's his history..... When he was a kitten, Wazoo tested negative for Feline Leukemia (this was at the county shelter).In 2009, Wazoo was re-tested for Feline Leukemia. Despite his sister testing negative, he tested positive and was fostered afterward in a room with only Feline Leukemia kitties. We found out 5 years later that in some situations, the snap tests can result in a false positive. (these are the 10-minute tests run in the vet's office) So....we re-tested Wazoo.... and he was negative!!!!!!After that, we asked the vet to send out an IFA test to the lab ... the IFA does a blood check at the cellular level -- negative!!  (this is the normal "next test" to run)To cover all bases, we contacted the UF Veterinary School, who referred us to the "guru" of Feline Leukemia testing at IDEXX (they make most of the tests).  She suggested one more test, a PCR. This test is to ensure he is not a "carrier" ..... that was also negative.  Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!!!  Wazoo was very glad to come out of the smaller foster area, and get to roam the house with the other kitties!!!!Contact Mona at meowmail1@gmail.com.
