Thank you.  I had a "talk" with Monkee this morning and I told him he better be 
on his best behavior and to "be nice" to that sweet little soul Possum b/c you 
know, Monkee was a rougher-upper of other cats (hence, likely the source of his 
Felv!) and he never met a cat he liked, so I told him he better pull it 
together and treat that gentle little boy nicely until I get there!  I'm sure 
he will begrudgingly obey me...

Monkee is chasing Possum and comforting him and showing him all the ropes.  It 
really is ok Caroline-------he knew love and care.

from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who                  
                                will deal likewise with their fellow man.

Subject: CLS- Possum
Can you add my foster kitten Possum (aka "Possee") to the CLS?  He was not an 
FELV cat, but possibly FIP.   He was a struggling, failing to thrive white w/ 
grey kitten (who indeed looked like a Possum), who had a rough start in life 
and I took him in to give him TLC and see what I could do for him.  
Unfortunately, I was unable to get him the vet care he needed/deserved due to 
approval problems with the adoption group he belonged to/I volunteered for and 
I will forever regret that and feel guilty.  But I know I gave him a wonderful 
few months that he wouldn't have had if I hadn't taken him in: he was kept 
warm, freed from the pet store condos, got the royalest treatment of all my 
fosters b/c I never made him stay in the condo-he had free reign of my two 
bedrooms, he slept on the bed with me curled in my arms or on my chest or 
shoulder every night and we had love-fest sessions every morning, with him 
purring away, he got the highest quality food and supplements, holistic vet 
treatments, and a little kitty heating pad that became his all time favorite 
thing.  Sadly though, for whatever reason, whether it be FIP, a congenital 
heart defect, or both, his little body couldn't keep up with his mind and 
desire to live and he crashed without warning (besides a swollen belly) on me 
in the early morning hours of Sunday and I rushed him to the emergency vet 
clinic to end his suffering.  He was a wonderfully sweet little boy and 
although he was more an old-man cat then the 7 mo kitten he was supposed to be, 
I loved him for who and what he was and I will miss him dearly, especially 
because he became my sleeper-bud and I haven't had one since Monkee left me in 
July.   He was my first cat/foster kitten to die since Monkee and that makes it 
even more heartbreaking for me b/c the Monkee loss is still so fresh.  I also 
wonder why they keep crashing on me on Sundays?!   Thank you,Caroline K.
