They do get under our skin and become a necessary to our lives.  I have 3 15 
pounders who think I am a mattress for them to sleep on.  Thank God they take 
turns.  Does Gilbert like to KNEED a lot?  Homey gets into a trance and digs 
deeply so I have had to explain to doctors what all those little red spots are. 
 Do you have to foster, or can you just adopt so you can give pain treatment as 
you see fit?
I end up adopting everyone that comes my way.  After just a couple of days I 
could not let them go.

As always... thank you for the advice and all the other references to 
research ( Doxy, Cannabinol) that can be helpful down the road...   In 
the case of Gilbert it is perplexing that they are so withholding re: 
drugs.  Gilbert is a favorite of everyone and no one wants to see him 
hurting....  I'll keep making suggestions.  Starting once again to pay 
my own ( larger) medical contributions under medicare I cannot afford to 
be taking him to vets on my own ( as well as it being a potential 
problem if I do because he is ( technically) the shelters " property as 
he is a Foster....   Right now he is on purefied liquid Venus Fly Trap 
per a complementary Vet who is well regarded in the local 
community...which she says helped her keep her own cats tumor at bay for 
nine months (  This lady is not simply " out there"... but I have not 
yet done any looking re: VFT as I was not planning to prolong Gilbies 
life.. Just to make him comfortable and keep him out of the shelter 
during his final days....  Now, of course, having gotten so used to and 
loving having him with me I am interested in how to keep him painlessly 
around with me longer....  I like watching TV with a 15 lb cat sitting 
on my chest with his face inches from my own... snoring..
