Kerry, I truly doubt he tried to encourage them to keep her especially since 
there are two other cats in the house that are negative.  He didn't with us, he 
just offered us the option of having him euthanized and once we told him we 
wanted to keep  him he became excited and really interested in helping us.  
Then today he seemed really distraught at the thought of this particular kitten 
being put down.  You could tell he really was fond of her.  Brought her right 
in the exam room and plopped her on the table with BooBoo.  I did tell him not 
to tell this family that we'll take her.  That would make their decision too 
easy.  He said of course he wouldn't.  If they decide to euthanize her he will 
tell them of our offer to take her.

  Gosh Lynne, a lot of good things did happen today...your vet sounds such a 
sweetie. And, the new babe you met. I wonder if your vet encouraged them to 
keep her, and get educated, given that he's one of the enlightened ones? 
  Wow.....keep us posted. 
  Kerry

  We just got home from visiting the vet and will be picking up the Doxycycline 
tomorrow.  It's being made of all places at the pharmacy across the hall from 
where I work so I can get it there instead of going back to the vets.  These 
folks make up Lennies transdermal thyroid medication and don't charge me a 
dispensing fee so good for me.  I know I'll get a good price on the Doxycycline 
and Interferon.  The Doxy is a liquid, chicken flavored one and the vet is 
going to teach me to administer the Interferon.  We don't really know if this 
will make a big difference but are willing to try.  That will be in next week 
and to my absolute shock, it isn't anywhere near what I expected it to be cost 
wise.  It's peanuts compared to what we've spent in cat food alone for this guy.

  BooBoo really likes Dr. Gill.  He is by the way running a slight fever so it 
is important to get this antibiotic in him.  When we came home, BooBoo came 
down the stairs all on his own, into the kitchen and ate some food.  He doesn't 
spend much time down here, just upstairs on the bed.

  When we were at the vets Dr. Gill told us about a family who brought their 
cat in today, an 11 month old female for neutering and discovered she was 
positive for FelV.  I guess they were all crying and needed to make a decision 
about keeping her or euthanizing her.  They have 2 other cats at home who 
tested negative as well but they share everything so who knows what will happen 
in the future.  Bottom line is, I think this was a ploy on Dr. Gill's part 
because he really loves this Baby cat and said he'd keep her if he didn't 
already have 2 cats at home and he didn't want to have to tsend her to the 
humane society because they just euthanize them.  Of course after introducing 
her to BooBoo and us we said we'd take her if they decide to have her put down. 
 I can't believe this.  Her blood work came back perfect so she' showing no 
signs of the disease yet.  She's adorable, a golden color with black feet and 
some black stripes.  They would pay for the neutering and adoption process if 
we took her.  He didn't charge us for this visit either.  So I guess it was a 
good day.  I don't know what the future holds for BooBoo but Bob and I have 
decided to give him every opportunity we can and just enjoy him while he's here.
