You and Bubba are in my thoughts, Beth. I hope he recovers soon! There was a time I thought our Polli was suffering from haemobartonella because she had a bad bout of fleas and was extremely anemic. Getting rid of her fleas was a long process but she's an indoor cat and we were eventually able to get her flea-free. I gave her a few flea baths and would comb through her fur and pick fleas off with tweezers! The vet gave us Doxy "just incase". Polli recovered slightly but has yet to fully recover.
To put it bluntly, FeLV sucks. I hate dealing with it but it breaks my heart to watch Polli and hear of all these wonderful cats who are battling this awful disease. -Amanda On Wed, Jun 12, 2013 at 12:51 PM, Beth <create_me_...@yahoo.com> wrote: > Hey guys need some positive energy for one of my FeLV fosters - Bubba.
