Sharyl --  Best wishes to you and to all these babies.  Whatever future
they have is already brighter with you taking such good care of them.
About Daisy, I guess I would say that if in the future she looks like
she's actively sick, bring her in and, if you can't afford to keep her,
do the kind thing so she's not out there suffering.  I'm not of that
disposition either but no matter what, they shouldn't suffer.

Subject: [Felvtalk] Introducing Daisy's Babies

I have been feeding a dumpster colony of kitties for several months with
the goal of doing TNR (trap/neuter/release) for those that I can not
rescue.  Of the 3 kittens I rescued 2, Sissy and Rocket, were FeLV+.
They are about 9 months old now and are doing well.  Both have test
positive twice.

Their sister, Daisy, had a litter before I was able to TNR her.  The
kittens were approx. 4 weeks old when I got them.  I took them because 1
had both eyes stuck shut and 1 had 1 eye stuck shut.  The next day I was
finally able to trap Daisy using a kitten as bait in the carrier.
Daisy has since been spayed and released.  The babies have received one
worm treatment, got terramycin salve in their eyes for a week, and have
lysine added to their food.  


It appears that Mattie will be blind.  She is the biggest of the 4 and
very feisty.   I had her tested and the vet said she was very, very,
very FeLV+.  No idea what 3 verys mean.  CJ may have some limited vision
in her bad eye.  Bright Eyes and Houdini (escaped from the dog crate
twice now) seem healthy.   I am adding L-Lysine and Mega C Plus to their
food.  I am looking for advice on what else I can do to help them throw
off this virus.  


They will each be tested when I have them spayed.   Sissy and Rocket
were several months old when I rescued them.  Didn't know if starting
treatments earlier would improve the odds that they could beat this.
Any advise on how to proceed with now 5 1/2 wk old kittens would be


By the way Stormie, same colony but different Mom from Sissy, Rocket and
Daisy, tested negative.  I did not have Daisy tested.  I knew I could
not afford to keep her if she was positive and simply do not have the
disposition to have a cat PTS simply because she is positive.   At least
she will not have any more litters.  There is one more sister, Mae, that
I have been trying to trap for TNR.
