She is lovely! I, too,just lost a cat (although not a FeLV+), but a cat I had for 13 years and for the last two years, he was going through chemo for intestinal cancer. But prior to his passing, I agreed to take a cat that tested positive for FeLV and needed a home (I have had many FeLV+ cats, lost 3 last year to the disease). I was unsure about following through with taking the new cat when Puddin'taine died even though I knew it was coming. I went ahead and took the other cat and am so glad I did. He has really blossomed and made himself at home--even helping to fill the void left behind.
I mention this because I know that Snowball will do the same for you and Bob. Every time I read where someone's pet has died and they say they can't go through that again and they decide "no more pets" I think how sad. I know it's tempting, having lost so many (since I typically rescue FeLV+ cats, that is unavoidable) and it never gets easier, but sometimes sooner or sometimes later, another furry soul comes along and needs you (and you need him/her). Here's wishing that you and Snowball have many many days together. Tracy
