Jennifer I'm so sorry you had to go through this (both you and Sasha). May it be of comfort to know she is no longer suffering.

I debated back and forth, and after a loooonnggggg discussion with the vet I decided putting her down was the best thing for her. I did what you did: gave her the best life I could, but let her go when it was time. Thanks again, Jennifer On Oct 11, 2013 5:41 AM, "Lorrie" <felineres...@frontier.com> wrote: Dear Jennifer, You did the right thing..... I have had many FelV cats, and other than giving fluids to make them more comfortable or taking care of something like an infection that a vet can treat, I will NOT put a cat of mine thru any heroic measures. I have tried assist feeding, and I've watched them gag and try to get away from me. This is pure torture for them as well as for me, the torturer. I know a lot of you will disagree with me, but when a FelV cat becomes desperately ill I put them down. I give my FelV cats as good a life as I can while they are alive and well, but when they are dying I let them go. Thank you for making the brave decision you made. You will miss Sasha terribly, but you did the kindest thing you could for her. Hugs for you from Lorrie On 10-10, Jennifer Ballew wrote: > Put Sasha down today.
