Hi Laurine,

First let me say that I'm so sorry, because this is so scary and probably worse 
for you since it doesn't sound like you are getting any HOPE, which is so 
important. Does your kitty have a temperature? If you can get meds online I 
would definitely suggest some amoxicillin, if he has a fever. He may have an 
infection that he needs help with. You can order fish antibiotics over the 
Internet made by Thomas Labs. I hate to give this kind of advice, but it may 
make him better where he feels good enough to eat better. I would also give him 
some b complex vitamins
Because cats need them. Sometimes they will perk up and eat and drink better 
after having them. Twin Labs makes liquid b complex that you could give by 
syringe. Other people on here will be able to help better than I, because I'm 
kind of a newbie with the Felv. My heart goes out to you and your kitty.

Take care
Sent from my iPad that my most awesome kids surprised me with, Christmas 2010.
