Wondering.... particularly all you folks who have multiple cats at home.....   I have one reasonably healthy FeLV guy weighing in at 10 lbs and the other guy is a bit of a twerp at 6.2lbs as well as not having a lot of energy due his pain and poor vision......   the healthier guy is a maniac and just wants to have fun...which involved periodically throughout the day trying to get my other guy to play by attacking him..... Yogi.. can't see well and only is able to avoid him by getting away after he is "jumped"....  Aside from my worry about Yogi's eye getting further injured  I am feeling badly for my other guy who I had gotten the second cat specifically SO he would have a play buddy......   They had SO much fun when Yogi was well but now the other guy doesn't( obviously) understand that Yogi can't really play......  Jelly ( the big guy) is often bored and now getting into everything to burn off energy.....   I play with him a LOT but he's just a very energetic cat.......  I've been thinking of taking in a third shelter cat with FeLV that I know is pretty healthy at this time ( though for fiscal reasons I would foster this time) and has been since she was a Kitten in the hopes that ( given she is the same size as Jelly) they might be a play match and leave Yogi alone.....  I've never had three young cats in the house at the same time and wondering if any of you have an opinion as to the likelihood of the Healthier ones Play bonding and leaving the sicker one in peace OR will they gang up on the weaker guy......   The little guy is due to go to a Veterinary Opthalmologist tomorrow for a determination as to if his eye can be saved since his weakened condition puts him at high risk for the surgery....  I want to give him every chance to survive ( comfortably) and decided that ( despite my desire to avoid specialist charges) I stand the best chance of getting a good opinion from a vet that really knows eyes ( most don't appear to beyond the usually seen stuff....often including Corneal Ulcers...BUT...my guy now has some kind of growth forming on the cornea at it's intersection with the Sclera... that looks almost like a large pimple and it's getting larger....   thoughts welcome...

Subject: [Felvtalk] Lost Hodor

We lost Hodor yesterday. It was extremely hard. He stopped eating and drinking. The vet had a hard time finding a vein for the catheter because of his anemia. It was so sad. Thank you all for your kind words and support. I wish that the vets could have done more to help him. FeLV sucks.
