I was told I didn't need to test anymore by my vet that Sox was healthy, and he was vaccinated. I wish I had waited until he was a few weeks older, tested him, and then I would have known. He died at 9 months, and he had been vaccinated. His mother had FeLV, but at the time I didn't know. She was

Hi everyone. Thanks for the responses. I had them do blood work on him, and its fine, he's eating like a cow, and drinking like a camel. Something that I discovered today is that it's NOT him going to the bathroom in the kitchen; it's our OTHER FLV+ cat, Miles. Now Miles is about 4 years

I would get the cat who is going potty in the kitchen checked for UTI. He could be jealous, but he could also be ill. On 8/2/07, Beckie McRae [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote: Hi everyone. Thanks for the responses. I had them do blood work on him, and its fine, he's eating like a cow, and

Hello Beckie, I haven't been participating in the group lately, (just too overwhelmed), but I poked my head in and saw your post. I'm so sorry that Moe is having such a hard time! We all know how frustrating and discouraging it can be to watch our furkids suffer and not be able to come up

Beckie, I'm glad you've discovered the culprit for the kitchen messes! I completely agree that he needs to go to the vet to rule out a UTI. His actions remind me in many ways of our same problems earlier. The howling can be from pain (it constantly feels like he has to pee from the burning) or

Hi all. Isabella is improving again. She is on interferon 7 days on and 7 days off. We opted for transdermal prednisone (once a day) and transdermal tramadol (twice a day). She hates pills. She gets transfer factor sprinkled on her canned food. We have finally found a food she LOVES ~ it's

Hi Laurie, I am so happy for you. I know you went though what I went through when Junior and Tiny tested positive for FELV last fall. I plan on going though Junior's medical records. He is close to the 1 year mark from when he became anemic. Unfortunately Tiny did not make it and he was

Malone, Hi ! How I am understanding this is: Your kitten Sox. was too young to test for FeLv/FIV. The vet went ahead, looked at your kitten. assumed he was healthy and decided to just give him his first vaccination for FeLV. I am guessing after Sox passed away, at nine months of age, you

Beckie, Yes, it can definitely be behavioral! Smart of you to figure this out! However, you might want to get bloodwork done on Miles to rule out anything physiological. I would think that any extreme temperature changes would not be good for FeLV+ kitties. Keeping them stress free is very
