Hi Bob

I have only seen two other posts this past week, other than one I posted in 
reply to one of those two posts. Other than that, I haven't received any emails 
in weeks.

I am again perplexed at the mail delivery for this group....  I've gotten 
nothing for a few weeks and just now THIS digest of messages..ALL of which I 
have received multiple times before.
Has there been other information going back and forth for the past couple of 

HOWEVER:  In relation to FIV...   it has clearly NOT been our experience at the 
shelter where I volunteer that FIV is any where near as deadly as FELV and we 
don't ever suggest that it is to potential adopters...
Our FIV'S range in age from 1 year to 8 yrs plus and oftentimes don't even get 
the URI that runs through the entire menagerie at the beginning of Winter.... 
I've been volunteering there for 4 years and have seen only one of our FIV's 
die and that from the scourge of FIV's ( Feline Infectious Peritonitis) 
thankfully it did not claim any others ( until months later when a couple of 
FeLV residents died)... but, in general, our FIV's have remained quite 
healthy....  Personally, I would be FAR more confident of the future adopting 
an FIV over an FeLV Kitty
