Gary, this was years ago...my very first experience with FeLV....and I didn't know any better....obviously, neither did she at the time. Thomas' euthanasia has been my driving force to educate people since that time. I have learned so much from you all here, and I am so very grateful. I mourn his death still....and pray that he forgives my (and my vet's) ignorance. He was a beautiful, sweet (not to mention completely asymptomatic) boy...and he deserved much better.
