Good Morning, I am new to this site, but having several positive kitties I 
would like to have someone to chat with. 2 years ago I brought Joey into my 
home. He was about 6 months old and quite a character. I kept him in my bedroom 
to protect the other cats from this disease. I then brought Angela in so he 
would have a buddy. After that, I seemed to have many gravitate to me. I at one 
time had 10, all in my bedroom (thank goodness it is big). In all, 13 have made 
their homes here, with 7 still living and doing well. I am hoping to educate 
folks, and find homes for positive babies, as I certainly can't take them 
all.... but haven't said no to one yet. I had Joey for just under 2 years when 
I  lost him. Have had a couple for under a month, but they knew they were loved 
and I was able to be there for them. I am so sorry that Rossi has passed, but 
he will be at the Rainbow Bridge waiting for you. Thanks for letting me drone 
on. Kathi

  The kitty who passed was Rossi. His buddy is Martini -- Martini & Rossi!
  I have 13 other cats in the house, and would never forgive myself if I 
somehow introduced the virus into the rest of the population. I do allow 
Martini to play with another cat (who is an outcast by his own choosing -- 
hates all other cats except Martini & Rossi), but supervised and with the food 
and water bowls and litter boxes put away. Also Martini likes to play 
with/tease the dogs! He is quite the character, and has a real 
mischievous/naughty streak.
  Thanks everyone for your kind words and thoughts about Rossi. We buried him 
in our yard, so he can stay close.
