Wendy, Thanks...
I , for one, can get a little wound up when it comes
to speaking up for animals and I really do not mean to
get off track. I do not think it hurts us at all to
take a little breather, from time to time, and open up
other subjects, because in a round about way, we can
see the benefit to cats in general...while actively
helping all animals...
This whole Vick thing , being an example...not to
mention a few people here might just blossoming from a
sad/dorment period and re-directing their beautiful
energy. I could be doing that myself? We all need to
stay healthy and happy in order to help more
cats...kind of a little joke, but probably true?   For
being here such a short time, I feel I have learned a
lot about FeLV.
 I so want to thank everyone who got back to me with
the best information they had to give me regarding my
FeLV+ little Gracie.The personal experiences gave me
some hope, the actual web-sites informed and educated
me...Thank you Wendy and everyone for making me feel
welcome. I hope I can be a good support and source of
information to some of you and perhaps some new people
that happen along. I certainly will recognize that
awful feeling of complete dispair when someone just
finds us after being told by their that vet that their
cat tested FeLV+.
The day that happened to me I came home, went to my
computer...It was about 10:00am. Well somewhere in
there I called my best girlfriend and told her...I
remember saying I felt so sad I wish I could get hit
by a truck. Well, I recalled that off-the -wall
comment I had made earlier in the day to my friend. By
10:00pm that night my head hurt so bad I thought to
myself that I feel like I have been hit by a truck! I
cosed up the computer , took a hot shower , ate and
went to bed. I felt tired for two days after that...
That was a killer day... 
 Well, now that I have personally gone through that,
I'm good to go for any who wander on to this site
having gone through what I went through that miserable
day. Meanwhile, I am here to keep picking up
information,tips and seriously just enjoying all the
nice people here. It is not easy finding so many very
nice people in one place...In my life, I have noticed,
when ever I have gotten in the company of
animal-lovers I am my happiest...Thanks guys! Glenda
