Thank you pam,sandy ,ardy and all who weighed. in. on. the “ runs”....  I’m leaning toward this being an autoimmune issue and will ask the shelter to have Tommy back to the vet for a better eval... Original recommendation was to use an antibiotic more common in livestock and aviaries ( tylosin) which was sound but did not take into account that my boy won’t eat his food with this foul tasting abx..... I’m reintroducing it..now.. but VERY slowly.... After a couple of weeks if I can’t get him to a full dose it’s time to change course.... He’s 15 years old and he can’t afford to lose weight or get dehydrated....  He’s a foster who was “ supposed” to be back with his owner well before now....but.... it looks to me that these guys are going to be a lifespan placement....

*Hi Bob and all,  *


*I don't realize I am not seeing posts until someone else mentions about
not seeing posts.*


*I lost my Ally three days after Christmas. A little less than a month later I was notified by a parent of one of my students about a 6+-year-old boy who was Fiv+ and FelV+; owner died and was at a shelter in the southern tier of NY. He is doing well and his name is also Tommy. I took home a FIV+ older cat (vet through FIV was flaring and I wanted him to have a home
and lots of love for whatever time he has.  He is playing, eating, and
giving lots of love and demanding lots of love! He is living in my Master suit while he is being vaccinated against FelV+ and can be with his Sunny
and Tommy who are super eager to meet him :).   *

Hi Bob,

If all else has failed to cure Jerry's diarrhea, you might try an extremely old remedy that was used on humans back in the 1930's. They used a cast iron frying pan and burned flour in it. I don't think they used any oil of any kind - just the flour and possibly a small amount of water, and just stir it until it browns and sort of burns. Then get him to eat a small amount. Apparently this was given to babies who had life-threatening diarrhea when nothing else worked.

I suppose though, if you can't get it stopped, it might be something like a parasite causing it? Not sure....just trying to help ?

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 weeks??





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

Yes Ardy. FIV is also a death sentence, more often than not, for

afflicted cats. And again, there is very little in the veterinary

arsenal to combat it.

I've not seen any posts for weeks, until a few days ago.

I hope this means all our cats are doing well.



BTW - FIV is not at all as dangerous a FelV.



I hope more people adopt these FIV cats, but unfortunately the average

person, who is not well informed, is is just as afraid of FIV.

December 22nd marked the beginning of our 2nd yr with Figaro in our

lives.

He is healthy, but a bit heavy- the kind of weight gain common after

being neutered. Have yet to get him integrated into the clan, so each

of us "bipedals" lavish Figaro with various kinds of attention... of

course I'M the "Mama" so Figaro and I do lots of grooming & cuddling!

Much admiration goes out to all of you, whose loving strength enriches

the lives of precious fur-babies, for as long as we are able!

Hi Sandy, I noticed the total lack of messages...... Hopefully this
