Bless you for caring and giving him the love he needed and deserved.
The little girl who came to me, Dixie Louise Doodle Katt, stayed for
two wonderful years....far more than the vets ever though possible. A
month after Dixie left this world, she sent me a kitten who really
needed a person....two weeks later, she blessed me with a second
kitten who needed a person. They are big, healthy cats and the joys
of my life and a joy to all of Dixie's vets (holistic and regular).
The time I had with her was a blessing beyond words........be prepared
for the blessings your little one sends to you and open your arms,
home and heart.
Your little dude knew love and safety and plenty, things he never knew
before he met you. I wish every being could be so lucky.

Anyway, I dont know anything about FELV, this was my first
introduction to it...
so I dont exactly know how the tumors are related (cancer?)... but I
drop a line to folks who understand. He wasnt my kitty for long,
