I'm so sorry to hear about Napoleon's loss! Though his life was cut short,
I'm happy to know he experienced nothing but love and kindness from you and
your friend.

Choosing to take care of an FeLV+ cat is a difficult decision; we know
we're setting ourselves up for heartbreak as well as vet bills and lots of
worry.  However, it is also one of the most unselfish actions. We know
these cats and kittens will be on earth for a much shorter time than most
of their FeLV- counterparts but we choose to give it our best and give them
one of the greatest cat lives imaginable!

Thank you for doing that for Napoleon, Willie and all the other kitties
you've taken care of. So many cats, whether healthy or unhealthy, don't get
to experience kindness, love, safety or care yet your kitties have known
nothing but that.
