Thank you all for your kind words... I guess when it comes to FeLV ( and more than likely all cats and most creatures small, medium and large)... we're all preaching to the choir...   I know all of you would feel very much the same as I and that I would offer similar words of condolence and encouragement (not that it isn't still nice and very much appreciated)    I've watched many of you put heroic effort into saving your Buddies and still others save every stray that ever meandered up to their door.  It's heartwarming and so encouraging to know that all of you are out there doing what you can for these sweet creatures( and some perhaps not so sweet..but in need none the less : ) ......  If more people were like all the caring people on this forum there would BE no homeless animals and shelters would merely be a very temporary stopover and, perhaps, a convenient place to pick up one or two extra cats if none happened to take up residence on your stoop that week... But..  If wishes were horses then beggars would ride...

thank you all...
Bob

I am so sorry that he passed, but glad that he was in his bed, with you at his side. Maybe he did not have long but his time with you was a time filled with love. Yes, it will take some time to get over this hurt, but as you say, you will be able to give another FELV cat love. You will always have memories.

Bob, I am so sorry about Yogi. Thank you so much for giving him a warm
loving home and giving such good care. I have been where you are and know how bad you are hurting. Know you did right by him and did all you could
do. I am sure he knew it. Peace to you

Sherri and Bogey

My heart breaks to read this, Bob. You had encouraging words to give me
about Curly and I have none to give you. Just deep condolences.

It's a sad world when medical treatment for a human or a beloved pet comes down to money. I've been down both of those roads. My wife and I both work full-time jobs which allow us enough extra money to pay for treatments. But if even one of us was forced to become a full-time caretaker we couldn't
afford the cost of treatments. I hope it doesn't come to that.

I honestly cannot imagine opening myself up for any more losses after our current clan is gone. But I applaud you for being willing to give a home to yet another FELV cat who desperately needs it. The world needs more people
like you,

My thoughts are with you.

Only by opening yourself for losses, do you grow in your capacity to love. We give it freely to those who need it and they love in return. A loss hurts and stays with you, but another room in your heart opens up for another. I have over 30 graves in my yard and each loss hurt deeply but then another shows up at my doorstep begging for love. you cannot say no.
