No, Pam, he was not :) I've just recently experienced this disease with my kitten I fostered and adopted from the Human Society. I've had a lot of cats in my lifetime and never heard of this horrible disease. I'm glad there are people like us that give them a chance to live the best life they can live.

Was he FeLeuk?  I'm guessing not.

I had a 30 pounder and he was close to 4 ft long, which I hate to admit, but he had an eating disorder. He ate bath tissue, facial tissue, & licked plastic bags. If you still did not feed him, he tossed his stomach bile. He would scratch at our brand new king mattress and keep us up at night if we did not feed him. We used the squirt bottle so much that he just started sitting there with his eyes slammed shut and just let us squirt him. We also tried feeding him the Purina OM diet (this was 10+ yrs ago) and he did not eat enough of it (I also had another cat at the time) and then he had liver problems. We put him back on his previous food. I used a diff vet then but he told me just let him be fat and happy, we did. He lived to be 16 1/2 yrs. We still miss him!!! He's been gone for 5 yrs :(

Diet? Easy - Eliot Spitty is not a big eater, and I will just restrict the
bowl of dry food that Mr. Tux loves to munch on in addition to their
allotted 1/2 can each.
I could hardly pick up his carrier - a lightweight soft one.

Now, now.........commenting on a cat's figure is considered very
rude....just ask Mr. Tux  :))))  Let me know how you get one cat to
diet when the other isn't.

Grrrreat news!
Speaking of IFA, I just came back from the vet and had my two boyz
Spitty and Mr. Tux) retested...I am keeping my fingers crossed. Both
are in
super health, I am especially happy that their gums and teeth are in
shape!  Mr. Tux is a bit overweight, but you'd never know just
looking at
him - he's pear-shaped - 15 lbs.  He has to go on a diet!

That's absolutely wonderful news! What a great story and such a
family with great teenagers.  I bet Eleanor will have a fabulous
life. I
hope she will be IFA negative. That would be a blessing. Thanks for
update and let us know the results of the test :)

I'm doing the happy dance for Eleanor!!!

Sabrina in one lucky girl.  We had originally hoped & prayed we
could find

someone who would give her a temporary room for the period of time
for testing to determine whether she could beat this thing. We sent
out SO

many emails & talked to SO many people.  Contacted all the networks
with.  But over the weekend, the golden goose flew over & laid the
proverbial egg on us. Not only does Sabrina get a room, she gets a

This is a young couple who live in Spring Green, WI, where Mew
Haven & I
am. The woman is the daughter of one of my good friends & a nicer,
warm family could never be asked for.  They had two Siamese cats
that they

lost last year so Shelley asked a lot of questions about Sabrina &
the disease.  I told her everything I knew which i s what I posted
initially.  That Sabrina might not live long but on the other hand
good care & a stress free environment, she might beat it & live a
healthy life. Or she might just be a carrier & live many years.  I

out that there are no guarantees with any pets & that there are
kitties that live longer than non-FeLeuk kitties.

Shelley's & Mark's girls are 13 & 16.  Both Shelley & Mark love
cats & so
do the girls but it was the girls' decision because losing their
last year had been very hard on them.  I was absolutely fine with
that &
told Shelley to tell the girls that it is possible that they might
have to

say goodbye sooner than they want but on the other hand this is a
for both of them to play a huge role in the life of one little
needs cat.  And as it turns out, it's what they want to do!  They
are both

very excited.  And as Vicki, Shelley's mom told me, there could not
possibly be a kitty who will be loved more than Sabrina will be.

But listen to THIS!  The girls wanted to know if it would be  ok if
changed her name to Eleanor.  For Eleanor Roosevelt who was such a
woman!  Do these kids get it or not?????????!!!!!!  They do!    I
am so

Sabrina/Eleanor is being spayed this week & will have her IFA done.
friend who works MH with me & I will drive up & get Eleanor a week

So far so beautifully good!
