What kind of a vet would suggest euthanasia of cats that once had a cold? With vets like that, who needs enemies! The same goes for having a cold that would be a corona virus, which often makes diagnosis of FIP hard because it's also a corona virus.OMG - I have NEVER, ever, heard of anything like that!
It's not a stigma, nor should it be, and never has been for us; most people have no idea what all that means, unless some vet scares the hell out of them with such nonsense ..

We have two cats at our house that had Calici when we rescued them and it should not be a lifelong stigma because once they are over it and continue to get an FVRCP vaccination every year there should be no issues. Also, if they are adopted into a household with other cats and those cats are vaccinated, there should not be a problem with them either. I have never heard of anyone not wanting to adopt a cat because he/she had the flu when he/she was a kitten. Basically, that is what the Calicivirus is, the flu, and while it CAN (and often does) kill a cat, not adopting because a cat was once sick seems ludicrous to me. Send me some pictures and I will circulate them Edna Texas Siamese Rescue _____ From: linda.dem...@hotmail.com To: email@example.com Date: Tue, 18 Sep 2012 12:41:24 -0400 Subject: [Felvtalk] 2 Darling Devils.. Hello Everyone, I am writing to you all in hopes that I may reach a broader group of wonderful people. Over 6 months ago I rescued 2 kittens that are both negative for fiv/felv but had the calisi virus and were scheduled for euthanasia. They were from different litters and grouped together. I went in an scooped them up and spent close to 1000 dollars on treatment medication vaccinations neuter microchip etc. They are now healthy and ready for a new home...problem is they are about 6.6 months old and I have had zero interest in them. I am willing to do out of state adoptions, but I will not make any exceptions on a vet reference and a home visit...which is what I am requesting. These guys are awesome and I would love for them to be adopted together because they have bonded so well, however I will not deny either one of them a good home because of this. I am in it for the long haul...I just really need help advocating their adoption because apparently there is some stigma attached to them due to the calisi they had as babes....any and all positive and constructive advise is super duper appreciated....thank you all...and God Bless!
