Unfortunately, not all vets are current on the latest thinking on such
"death sentence" diseases as FeLV and FIV.  It's so important to find
one who is knowledgeable and willing to work with a kitty through its
various issues.  There are many knowledgeable and supportive vets out
there, and often the ones who are not knowledgeable welcome any info you
can give them, so don't be discouraged.  If this vet persists in her "he
must be suffering" viewpoint it might be good to shop around.  
Good luck with "your" ferals.  In case you haven't come across it,
[EMAIL PROTECTED] is a wonderful resource.  Some of the members
can be a little hard-line about some things, but the files section of
the web page is a treasure trove of good info on trapping, vetting and
other aspects of feral caretaking.  Many of them are working with little
or no money themselves.  The co-listmom, Gesine, gives great
down-to-earth advice.

Thanx Tonya,


I have been on the internet to many sites that have been very
informative and am going to try to find help with the colony around my

This was a new vet I went to and am now going to ask more questions.
Being new to felv i didnt know much. I took her word that he was
suffering and would only get worse.


It's a little hard for me at this time because i lost my job so finances
are low. But I am trying to find help so this doesnt happen again.


The feralcat group at yahoo has been very helpful about tnr if i can
find a vet who will help me, since i am not working and have the time to
do it.


Again Thanx so much for your support.

        Be sure to really check around.  My sister is in North Carolina
and they have TNR program that cost only like 15 dollars per spay and
neuter.  Good luck.
