I am so sorry that he passed, but glad that he was in his bed, with you at his
side. Maybe he did not have long but his time with you was a time filled with
love. Yes, it will take some time to get over this hurt, but as you say, you
will be able to give another FELV cat love. You will always have memories.

Well my little Yogi passed away in my arms on Sunday morning....He had
started to go downhill a few weeks ago when his HCT dropped over a few
weeks to 14.... I did manage to get my hands on some Winstrol thanks
to the efforts of others on this forum to whom I am eternally grateful
but he faded too fast for it to have adequate effect ( or he simply was
not one of the cats that was going to respond to it)
He got to pass peacefully at home on the bed that he knew so well and
with the hand of the guy that loved him and worked to keep him alive all
these months stroking him.. I had actually made arrangements to put him
down later that day after seeing the condition he was in that morning.
I'm SO glad I didn't have to keep that appointment.
It's been a tough go... The little guy never really knew more than a
few months of health.
There was , honestly, nothing really remarkable about him ...just a
ratty little skinny thing with one clouded over eye.... but he was a
sweet gentle little soul that never so much as attempted to scratch me
despite all the things I had to put him through to keep him alive....
There was almost nothing left of him at the end ( started with him at 6
months old and 7.5 lbs and progressively over a year lost 3 lbs ( about
40% of his body weight . I probably would have put him down on at least
3 occassions if it wasn't for all the good advice and suggestions I got
from all of you that helped me press on .
So now I go from hurting every day watching him go downhill to the one
big hurt of losing him.... it will pass in a bit of time( though
certainly not today!) and it gives me the opportunity to give a home to
another FeLV Cat that would have spent it's life in a cage...... and to
give a playmate to my still healthy guy who is still very much a Kitten
in his actions and DYING to have someone to play with...this time I will
FOSTER so that I don't go broke with cat care if the next little
guy/girl starts to go south well ahead of time...
Thanks to all of you for being there for FeLV cats... You all are the
one bit of luck the kitties who have come under your care have had....
