I think being able to share situations is helpful, because others may have experienced similiar things. Asking for suggestions isn't really a cry for help or action, right? should we only be posting medical questions - I wasn't aware of that, so just let me know if that's best and I will be sure to only do that going forward.

There are too many FIV/FeLV kitties out there who truly need immediate assistance to squander valuable resources on false alarms. 1st hand knowledge of a situation outweighs 2nd or 3rd hand info that is probably embellished with each telling. Most of us have limited time, dollars, or emotional stamina. Lets try to use them wisely.

How does this smack of 'the writer not taking steps to help the kitty' as you said? If he's negative, it's a whole different story. The room had perches, toys, a tv, radio, and he had his own run outside, a large tall enclosure for warm months. I was shocked, happily shocked. you can see a different story was painted over the phone and it seemed desperate. There is a care taker for the ill relative that lives there 24/7 who I personally talked to who adores the kitty, and makes him chicken. A small part of me did feel taken for being led to believe it was dire. He has a full see through door so he can see the rest of the house. Who could not agree that a kitty mere hours away from having his life drained out of him is in more need of immediate focus. I am well aware of C&W and many other organizations that I am in contact with - fosters, as well. These are all possibilities. I sincerely appreciate your suggestions, and take them to heart. I will not accept your judgement however. I'm sorry it's hard on you emotionally, from behind your keyboard, but I can assure you it has been likewise on me on the frontline. This should be a place for gentle support and compassion. We are all good people here doing the best we can. Case closed on this one. _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org _______________________________________________ Felvtalk mailing list Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org
