Hi Sheila...
Wonder if you have anyone helping you with Cat Care ( or expenses).... that is a lot of cats to look after and the expense could get rather overwhelming..... are some of them fosters???

I understand Sheila! I have my first too, actually Mom and her kittens. One
kitten passed away.and the other is 15 months old. Plus I took another
FeLv+ cat from out shelter. I will probably end up adopting her too :).

Sheila did your vet seem concerned about the higher cholesterol?

I have never had anyone tell me my cats needed cholesterol tested.
i was beginning to wonder if the list was still there, had not heard
anything.

My son Skylar is doing well and his 6 month bloodwork came back great.
High cholesterol is all. No idea why that would be. He is now 2 1/2 years
old, I hope he is around a long time.

Things have been very quiet on the group lately...OR... I am once again
not getting group mail....
Has there been activity I've missed??
My Hospice Boy ( Gilbert) is doing quite well for the moment but ( as we
all know with such things it could change any minute...so I'll just enjoy it while it's happening).... Wondering if any of you have experience with Higher dose Prednisolone administered chronically ( say above 7.5 mg QD)... When I agreed to Foster Gilbert it came with the proviso that I would follow their directions ( Which I will hold to unless I feel they are
killing him unnecessarily quickly)  His Tumor does not appear to have
gotten any larger and his pain appears to be pretty well controlled.... Just wish I knew specifically what is helping the most so I could cut down on superfluous drugs....currently he's on Gabapentin( .4 cc BID if pain is up.. QD if doing OK).. for pain, prednisolone ( 10 mg QD administered via
syringe dissolved in milk, Venus Fly Trap SubQ BID ( interesting
substance... bears closer scrutiny...  supposed to have anti tumor
activity) Two other " alternative " medications !
 which I h
ave suspended only because the poor boy screams bloody murder every time I have to give him something..... with a tumor invading his oral cavity I
want to keep anything PO to a minimum....
Seems that the cats I've had that are _ supposed_ to ( clincally) die
don't and the ones that that aren't ..do Hope everyones buddies are
doing reasonably well ( as reasonably well as FeLV Kitties can do)...
Gilbert, as I mentioned, had a traumatic brain injury which has left him with poor balance... but lately he's been insistent on expanding his range and even tried running this AM... Wasn't in anything resembling a straight line but the spirit in this guy is enough to make you weep... Guess that's part of why I am such a fan of animals.... they simply do what they have to and do it without complaint ( Sure glad they can't speak...perhaps I'd like them less if their inner thoughts were more like ( Why ME?? I'm a more thoughtful caring cat than Mittens over there; why did _ I_ have to get hit by a car and THEN get cancer!!... and there's that jerk Mittens
running around all carefree and happy...where's the Justice I ask
you!!!!)...

I am scared to get him a friend since I have 14 other cats in the house. He is alone in a big area of the house. But I am not sure if him and another cat would spread germs back and forth. My cat clan is up to 28 cats. Insane.
