Ah thanks Anita.  We had to rush him in this morning a day early because he was 
breathing through his mouth.  Dr. Gill, BooBoo's biggest admirer drew another 
100 cc from his lungs.  He immediately felt better and Dr. Gill handed him over 
to Bob to take home.  As soon as he got home he ate like a little horse and now 
is sleeping.  My husband and I keep asking each other if we're sure this is 
what we want to do and we both agree we've made a committment to try what's 
available to us and that's what we're going to do.  It will break my heart when 
our 19 year old goes but he has lead such a good life and still is but poor 
little BooBoo didn't deserve this and it could have easily been prevented by 
one frickin vaccine that a stupid cat breeder neglected to do.  I hope the 
woman who took the 300 bucks from us for him uses the money to go out for 
dinner and chokes.  I'm appalled that they know what we're going through and 
didn't at the very least give back the money to help us offset his  vet bills.  
I'm not done with these people.  I'm just too busy with Boo at the moment to 
get really vindictive.

  Lynne, my heart truly goes out to you, your husband and Boo. What love and 
compassion you have - that is truly worth its weight in gold. Love is the best 
medicine and you obviously have a lot of that! I am praying the treatments help

    Well, after bawling a lot last night and conferring with my husband while 
at work today I faxed off another letter to my vet letting him know that Bob 
and I would try any treatment that may possibly give BooBoo more time on this 
earth with us and I made a couple suggestions.  To my surprise he told me I 
could pick the interferon up tomorrow at the pharmacy I deal with and he would 
start the injections Saturday.  The other vet said it would do no good at this 
stage, but BooBoo's primary caregiver is more willing to try to help him, that 
is if we wish to go through with it.  I was so desparate today I wondered if he 
could be transfused to give him a better shot at battling this and he will be 
transfused next week.  His vet said they have a donor for him that is 
vaccinated yearly.  I didn't actually think there would be a live donor and was 
kind of dismayed to think another cat would have to do this for us but the vet 
assured me with cats their blood store is totally back to normal in a short 
time.  I even had a pharmacy tech offer her Himalayan as a donor.  I truly do 
not know if this will do any good whatsoever but what is there left to do.  If 
new blood and interferon can't help him, I honestly believe we can do nothing 
more.  I asked about other drugs too but the vet said he was really happy and 
thankful we're willing to go this far for him.  He has 3 cats of his own and 
does love cats.  He told us most positive cats or cats with FIP aren't given 
these chances so this is a first for him.  I know he will do everything he can 
to help BooBoo.  He really loves him too..If we can just give him a fighting 
chance here I'll try this Transfer Factor stuff that came in the mail today.
