REALLY?  Y'all think so?  I don't think anyone is being mean and hateful, but 
then again, I tend to see the positive side of most things :) Anywho, I'll ask 
again DOES anyone have any advice on things I can do to make SuzieQ more 
comfortable in her last days.  She is 2-3 years old, was diagnosed with a 
rapidly advancing cancer a couple of weeks ago, doctor said she was exposed to 
FeLuk as a kitten even though she was able to shed the virus but there is 
nothing we can do because the cancer has already compromised her liver, etc.  
Anyone have any pearls of wisdom to share????????????

I have to agree - this list used to be such a positive influence in my life - I 
joined years ago when I had a kitten test false pos - and I stayed because the 
people were so wonderful.  It has gone way, way downhill.

I have been with this list since my kitten developed Feline Leukemia in 2006. I 
have seen it go way off topic and people that have been invaluable leave. I 
realize I don’t post often, but as I am with many animal groups I do send 
people that are struggling. It was most disheartening to know that they were 
not able to get help, but did learn that people hated their beliefs. They just 
needed guidance because they are dealing with this for the first time. This has 
always been a place to hear the newest treatments and for those given grim news 
the knowledge that there is always hope.

 Don't fret Elizabeth.  Occasionally we get a little off topic but we soon get 
back on the "road". Just like you would take a journey and have to pull over to 
the shoulder of the road to allow your car to cool down we do the same here.  
We all have different opinions and sometimes we just like to "cool down" by 
having a chat with people we feel safe with - people who rescue cats and who 
understand the ethical decisions we make in not killing those cats who test 
FeLv+.  It feels to me like sitting down to dinner with a church group.  We all 
agree on the religion but we may all approach it in a different way and see it 
in a different way and even get way off topic and discuss hair styles and shoe 

If you have a question about feline leukemia, please ask it and we will 
discontinue our chat about everything under the sun and moon and help you with 
your issue.  Blessings.

  Spay and Neuter your cats and dogs and your weird relatives and nasty 
neighbors too!

 This list has always been so very helpful—now it is full of judgmental people 
that do nothing but bash those with different views. What is happening to this 
list? If people hunt they are evil. Like it or not many people all over the 
world hunt—they are all condemned because there are those that hate it. Then 
the list is now into politics. What happened to helping deliver information 
about feline leukemia? People that look in to get help see this and leave. It 
is heartbreaking that this is deteriorating away from what brought all to the 
list in the first place.
