I started making it very plain that I did not want the vaccinations at that
time......and still had a vet give a rabies shot to a very sick cat.  When I
expressed my displeasure, the tech informed me that "they had never had any
trouble with..........."  Given that most cats in this county, including the
little one in question, live outside, he would never know.

My cat Fletch also spiraled downhill after being neutered. But honestly,
they vaccinated him with core vaccines AND  Felv, and I think that is what
started him on his downward spiral. I didn't ask for that either. But I
agree that it would have been much more stressful for him to stay intact.

Sorry to say, but I had my kitten neutered at 6 mos. of age (at the time we
did not know he was positive because he actually tested neg for it when he
was much younger). He died at 9 mos of severe anemia & other complications
due to being FeLV positive.  I don't know if getting him neutered triggered
this but now I'm wondering since you've mentioned this.  Has anyone else
heard of this?

I still have Mitt, the kitten I found in October who tested positive. He
seems to be

healthy at this time and  around 7-8 months old. I am thinking I should have

neutered but the local humane society refused to do surgery on a positive

claiming surgery could trigger an immune system problem. Has anyone neutered

their positive cat after finding out it was positive and what was your

Thanks for any input. PS: Someone asked my in a prior posting why the vet

vaccinations before getting blood work results that showed positive. She
sent the

blookwork to an outside lad since she said it would be less costly and that
same visit

when blood was drawn, she went ahead and did vaccinations.
