feline leukemia. I recently acquired a Himalayan male cat around 5 to 6 years
of age from a rather unscrupulous family. I was familiar with the cat because
all summer he would come over to our house and hang
Lynne - I adopted a new kitty last July. Mandy also tested positive for
leukemia. I loved her immediately so I never considered anything but keeping
her. She is thriving. I feed her Wellness canned food (mixing in some lysine
and Missing Link) and Nutro dry food. She is more than six years

Thanks for the encouraging news about your Mandy Pat. We're still trying to
modify our boy's diet. I bought this food called Medi-Cal hypoallergenic diet
from the vets because he was having diarrhea and terrible gas. He finally had
a solid bowel movement yesterday and seems to like the food
Well that's happy news Tad Since our cat is between 4 to 6 and well, maybe

Have one FELV+ who will be 10 years next month. She's a hefty 18 lbs and
the only problem (other than overeating!) she's had is a few episodes of
very low white blood count. Vet got the count up pretty quickly with
immuno-regulin. My other FELV+, Romeo, is probably a year or so
Dixie came into my life as a throw-away who showed up at my mother's.
I liked her and took her to my vet several months later to have her
spayed, intending to take her to my farm as a barn cat. He tested
her (she was still nameless) and she was FELV+. He explained the
options and was
I've found that feeding the best quality food possible, finding the
right supplements to boost immunity and a
stress free and loving environment does wonders. You might want to
get him on supplements to support
his immune system before and after his surgery (neutering). There is
Thank you Jane. BooBoo (we didn't name him) is on a good diet now and
seemingly in very good health and I think he feels really well having had a
conditioning bath and grooming. I think the little guy is clean for the first
time in his life. I talked to the vet about supplements and he

I guess I just liked the music. It is a Spay Neuter clinic somewhere that

I can't hear the music:( No speakers. The kittens were adorable.:)

Hi Lynn, my Squeaky and Stripes tested positive. Squeak lived a healthy life

Thanks Laurie for this encouragement. I've become angry at the people we got
the cat from only because they have still have an add on a site selling two
