Jennifer, if you have a GNC near you, they carry the pure form.  Pharmacies
tend to have the human kind with the additives.

Congratulations on the negative FeLV test results!  The supplement your vet
recommended is lysine.  You can find it fairly inexpensive at health food
stores and online, if not elsewhere.  Sometimes lysine can have additives
that can cause Heinz body anemia in cats, so make sure you buy it in pure
form.  Keep us posted on your pregnant kitty and I'm so glad for her and her
kittens that she is negative!

Morrison and Isobel are both FeLV NEGATIVE!  I was so happy when I found
out!  Those were the longest 10 minutes of my life (the time it takes for
the test results).  They both got their FeLV vaccine.  At first they weren't
going to give Isobel one because she's pregnant (the vet confirmed) but then
they found their FeLV vaccine for pregnant kitties.  I spoke with my vet
about a spay-abort and he said basically it was my choice, but that is
something he does (for a much bigger price), but he said I should also
consider no-kill shelters.  There's a shelter that brings cats who're up for
adoption to my vet's office and they're on display in the lobby.  He told me
to take the kittens there after they've been weened and seen by him and most
likely they'd be adopted out sooner rather than later, and possibly even
displayed in his office, and their kittens always go fast.  There's an
adoption application and a donation fee, so as to make sure they're being
adopted into good homes who really want them.  I got the feeling from my vet
that he's not too fond of doing spay-abortions.  He said if I do choose to
do that, I need to do it within the next two weeks tops because he
guesstimated that she's going to give birth within four weeks, give or

As for Ash, he got his rabies vaccination and he's all set to get neutered
on the 28th.  I discussed supplements for him and he recommended Lisine
(spelling).  He said I can get it at most health food stores, or maybe even
Walmart.  250 mgs a day.  I am going to look into other supplements as
well.  I have names of some.  With the supplements and with periodic
wellness visits, Ash should be fine for a while (I hope).
