It's been close to a year since Asha made her way to Crash's Landing. The volunteers love her, but they would love nothing more than to find her a permanent home. Please adopt Asha!

Crash's Landing is a non-profit, no-kill cat rescue center.  Since opening in Grand Rapids in 2002, Crash's Landing has helped more than 2,500 cats. But there is still work to be done.

Each Friday on 100.5 The River is Purrrfect Friday, where we feature a cat from Crash's Landing that needs a home.

This week, we're spotlighting Asha.

Asha was found wandering around Caledonia in early September 2018. She was about one year old at the time. The people who found her were considering taking her into their home. They brought Asha to the veterinarian where she tested positive for Feline Leukemia. The virus is transmitted through the sharing of bodily fluids like saliva. They didn't want to put the cat they already owned at risk so they didn't adopt Asha. They called Crash's Landing and Crash's Landing was happy to welcome Asha into Big Sid's Sanctuary, their home for cats with Feline Leukemia or FIV.

The people who brought Asha into Crash's Landing chose to not bring her around their cat due to the risk of contracting Feline Leukemia. That's okay, but it can also be okay to have Asha around non-infected cats. There are vaccines that can be given to non-infected cats to help decrease the risk of transmission.

Every cat owner has to weigh the benefits and risks for themselves. We're hoping someone is ready to give Asha a chance. Please adopt her!
