Hi one and all, it has been some time since I last saw a post as well. I'm happy to see the group is still alive! Bob, I feel so bad - sorry just doesn't cover it - you have had a sad, sad year. In my book, you are someone special who makes the difference for a very sick kitty cat - not many people can do what you do. I haven't had an FeLV kitty cat for some time - don't want one if possible. right now, I'm busy fostering momma's with babies and trying to get the teenagers adopted into good loving homes. Guess the worst I've got right now are 4 that were thrown away - just happen to have a genetic disease called Eyelid Agenesis - virtually, no eyelid. Surgery has taken care of the 2 girls but the 2 boys will need a 3rd surgery. Luckily, there is an animal eye specialist who works with rescue groups so the cost is 1/2 - but that still has to be raised and with all the devastating weather - not to mention this being the worst year for kittens being born most people are not donating for this cause. Hang in there Bob - remember there is only one of you and you are special. Katherine, I'm glad your kitty is still hanging in there.

Hi Robert, Yup, still here. My sweet boy just turned 15 at the beginning of this month. We're at a plateau. His nose tumor growing and distorting the shape of his face - making one eye small - plus there's a small open sore at the top part of the bulge that seeps blood and mucus all day and leaves little crusty snail trails wherever he sleeps. I'm cleaning his face several times a day with wet wipes and tissues, and he's on pain meds. He looks awful but he's still eating faithfully, so as long as there's that....I'm here for him.

Generally it has been my experience that once I write one of these notes I start to get mail once again... NO idea why.... I thought of all of you recently when it was time to put my Hospice Cat ( Gilbert) down.... Third cat I have lost in a year.... I'm 0 for 3 at this point and am thinking it might be time to take on a more healthy animal but I keep harkening back to amani's words... If not us... who?? Certainly not the people who don't much care about cats...nor the vast majority of people who HAVE cats..... There are SO many deserving animals out there that have problems that place them low on the adoption list.... they ALL deserve to have a home and someone to see them as special.... Gilbert was not adoptable with his brain injury...though ALL of the volunteers thought him special...still... no one came forward when he developed cancer though they all truly DID care that he was going to die.... He had a good life for his last few months... sitting on the porch...looking out the window.... and more petting and love than even HE wanted. As is usually the case.... it was probably harder on me than him when it came time.... He stopped eating, it was painful for him to get his oral meds and even subq pain killers did little... He was constipated and just hid out all day... The Tumor was forcing his one eye to protrude and the other to recede... it would have been cruel to ask him to endure more..... A beautiful sweet animal.... I miss him terribly... Curious to see if I find the list active with this submission.....
