Sharyl, I am so sorry to hear this. That is a lot of loss in a short time.
They are so lucky that you found them and gave them love and food and a warm
bed. I hope Mattie will comfort you. You share the loss of sweet CJ. I pray
she will stay with you a long time, too.

Subject: [Felvtalk] Please Add CJ to the CLS

I had to have CJ (Captain Jack Sparrow) PTS this morning.  I had taken him
to the vet Monday and she dx anemia from the FeLV.  In spite of assist
feeding and B12 supplements he faded.  Went downhill fast Friday and showed
signs of distress Friday night.  With the holiday week end I just couldn't
wait any longer.

CJ was one of 4 dumpster babies I rescued last summer.  They were just 4
weeks old.  I have since TNR'd their Momma.  CJ was the loving-est little
boy.  He would sleep under my chin and purr me to sleep every night.  No
idea how I'll get to sleep tonight.  Every time I sat down he was in my lap
for hugs and petting.  Out of all the cats I've had he was the sweetest. 

I know he is in a better place.  It's just hard to lose any of them but even
harder with the special ones.  I just have Mattie, who is blind, left out of
this litter.  She is my adventurer.  Goes where no kitty in their right mind
would go.  She is also FeLV+ and currently asymptomatic.   I pray I'll have
her for a long time.
