Here is the link to the Yahoo Anemia group.
I think there is a Yahoo group for just about any condition.  The anemia group 
is pretty active.

I am sorry to hear that!  Gray Kitty had his second blood transusion last week.
 We know we can not sustain him this way, but we are trying to buy time.  His
Hematocrit went down to 9 when he was first diagnosed.  He had the first
transfusion and it ended up going in the normal range of 35.  He then dipped
back down to 18 and then 15.  At that time, he had a second transfusion and he
has gone back up to 35 again.  We are currently working with a doctor in
Michigan, who has done bone marrow transplants in cats.  We are hoping to help
future cats with this illness.  
There is an anemia group as well?  How do I get to that one too?
I will keep you and your kitty in my prayers.  It is just so heartbreaking!>
