Sheila, my 2 cents-
- for me - it's not just spreading the FeLV to others, it the autoimmune
problem of not being able to fight off viruses or diseases that they could get
from other cats.
I have Buddy in our guest room - in a controlled environment- we replaced the
door with another re-engineered door. The replacement door bottom panel we
replaced with clear plexiglas so he can see the other cats in the house, and
the top panel with a screen door screen guard panel for air and to get house
sounds. He uses the plexiglas as a drum-especially when he wants attention!
I have spent at least 2 hours with him each night for the last 5 years- have my
own easy chair and large screen tv :)
That's the remedy I came up with so he gets plenty of loving and entertainment-
he's probably the healthiest of all the other 14 I have inside!
•Food: no junk food, both wet and no-grain kibble -that includes a variety of
brands- and fresh water
•Vaccine: wouldn't touch it - I don't use vaccines unless required by law
•Stress: I keep it as low as possible, that means only vet trips if life &
death- can't afford routine visits because we're living on retirement funds
•Pray: a lot
Will be praying for Robert too!
