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. 
Hugs to everyone's kitties 
K

No mail has appeared in my mailbox from this group for quite long while so I 
thought I would inquire as to whether _ I _ am just missing mail that HAS been 
going to others or if the group has simply not been active for a couple of 
months..... 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..... 


Bob...
