Kathryn, I am so sorry about Smokey.  I know how much you wanted him to make 
it.  Don't reproach yourself too much (I know you have to a little, 20-20 
hindsight is  what we humans do best) for causing him pain trying to take care 
of the mouth sores.  You were doing what you could to be a good mom, and we 
often have to do things they don't like for their own good.  Gentlest of Bridge 
vibes to Smokey.  I know he knows how much you loved him, and maybe he will 
guide you to another kitty who needs you.  Brava for wanting to find one who's 
been passed by, I always worry about the older ones who aren't kitten-cute 
anymore.  Hugs.
Diane R.

I am so sorry to have to write this. We lost our sweet little Smokey cat. When 
I took him to my vet before we left on vacation she told us that the sores in 
his mouth were caused from the virus and that he was suffering. She said  there 
wasn't anything that could be done. I just couldn't believe it because I 
really thought he was doing so much better and that the sores were from herpes, 
which I explained to her. She said no, sometimes these sores are caused from 
the decease and that he was in great pain. Every time I think about the times 
that I cleaned his little mouth it breaks my heart because I now know how much 
I was hurting him. I was as gentle as I could be but I thought I needed to keep 
the sores doctored and I really didn't realize how much pain he was in. Stupid 
me, I thought I was helping him and that he was getting better. 

After some time goes by, I plan on going to a rescue facility and adopting a 
cat. I will try to get a little cat that has been passed by, maybe a little 
older one, I don't really know, I figure I will know when I see him/her. Thank 
you for all the information and support. You all were a great source of 
information and support.
