Where I live it is abuse to fail to provide medical care for a sick or injured animal. You might see if there is any recourse down that avenue.

I can relate to everything you say Lynne. You're doing everything in
your power to help BooBoo, but you're not going to let him suffer.
It's beyond me why so many vets can't think beyond euthanasia the second
a cat tests FeLV pos. It makes me want to say to them, so I take it
you'd recommend euthanasia for yourself if you were diagnosed with a
terminal disease? Yup, that's my vindictive streak!
I don't blame you one bit for emailing BooBoo's former "family". I hope
they do take a lesson from it. But, from everything you've said about
them they are not good people and I hate to think of any animal being in
their "care".

Thank you Jane.  I think of all our members and what they are
as well.  I think it makes us all better people and caregivers.
Honestly I
think the vet was wrong to suggest to us as soon as Boo was diagnosed
we consider euthanasia.  It would have been far harder on me if I had
given him a fighting chance.  I still will not let him suffer and if
is any indication of that, BooBoo will be crossing that bridge.  My
has suggested I not let the previous owners know what is going on with
because they would just blame us anyway, but I felt this morning that
should experience at least a bit of the pain that we have because of
neglect/stupidity.  So I did email them outlining all of the tests he's
through, the suffering he has experienced with his breathing, all the
details including the financial impact.  I'm not as kind as my husband
and unfortunately I do have a vindictive side to me.  I ended my email
saying you should have all your animals tested and/or vaccinated so you
won't have to experience this agony.

I am thinking of you and BooBoo. I know how stressful this is for the
both of you.
He is on his own path and is so lucky to know what caring and love
feels like.
Take care of yourself.
