Allowing mixed "pet" cats to stay together that have already been exposed is one thing altogether.
Deliberately exposing already immune compromised fiv+ cats to felv+ is giving them a death sentence. While she (Not Sherry, the owner) collects donations for this and tells everyone, "We do the best that we can". Question, as far as declawing, are the adopters even asked or is it "just a given"? Sounds like the dark ages. And besides, a cat that is fiv+ is stillvery adoptable, w/an education programset in place. A cat that is felv+ is much harder. A cat that is fiv+ and exposed to felv is just about impossible. Susan J.

It is a calculated risk that takes into account quality of life, as is your decision to allow your cats outside. In my situation, with my neighborhood and my street-senseless cats, an outdoor kitty is a risk that I won't take. Your situation may be very different. I guess I am just trying to suggest that we ALL care deeply for our cats, and that we be gentler with each other when voicing our different opinions. It does the cats no good if all of us crazy cat ladies start attacking each other. Sherry has worked so hard, and takes each loss so personally, and for that I thank her.
