Gumdrop is a sweet girl, not yet full grown, who came into the No. 5 Rd. shelter. When she was taken to the vet to be spayed, she tested positive for FELV - feline leukemia virus.

Since kittens sometimes test a false positive (as was the case with Wonder), and so staff a little time pass and then tested her again. Unfortunately, Gumdrop's results once again came back positive, and so she's come to live in the Leukemia room at the sanctuary.

Gumdrop is such an obvious sweetheart that it only took a matter of hours (if that) in her new home at the sanctuary for her to start winning herself some fans among the staff and volunteers.

  1. Update: Little Gumdrop has been adopted by a wonderful young woman who wanted to give a truly needy kitty a home. She said it was love at first sight!
