Why would you doubt that he would come back? He loves you dearly and knows you miss him. Others have come back. You just weren't as open to seeing/feeling them as you are now. - Original Message - From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] To: Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org Sent: Friday, October 28, 2005

Kerry, You've been here a while and probably read this before.. but with my crf cat I gave him tons of wet food. The more you water you can get in the better. Also, mine loved to play in the water and would therefore lick it off his paws and drink more that way. I would sometimes leave a sink

I think Belinda may be talking about Vita B injections. They are very inexpensive, you can get them online, or from your vet. You give them subq. There's no harm in trying it, it can't hurt and it might help. I sure do hope Ginger is eating by now. I've been thinking of her and wondering
