Wolfie's HCT at 29% isn't horrible,
given until the HCT drops to 20% or lower.
Yeah didn't plan to start Epogen til it drops to 20 or lower. Just trying to
do my research and prepare since I've never had one stop dropping once the HCT
starts going down.
I subscribed to this mailing just a few weeks ago when I found out that
my 2 kittens were FeLV positive. I committed to caring for them though
the first vet (who since I have since stopped going to) told me to have
them put down and spare myself the agony and financial burden.
My girl kitty,
Oh, Sarai, I am so sorry. What a terrible experience for all of you. I'm
glad you stuck with her all the way and were able to do the kind thing when
it was time. Gentle Bridge vibes to little Bella. I like to think that when
they go so young they get another chance, and I hope she finds you
I have two that have tested positive but are asymptomatic. They are both around
3-4 years old. Both big and fat. HoweverI have been through this before and
know it could change at any time. I'm not doing anything special, just keeping
them on a good diet and keeping a close eye on them.
I'd be interested in getting this advice as well!
I have a 7month old FeLV positive kitten. No symptoms or illness. And
if she doesn't find a loving home by August (not likely - given the
deluge of cats out there!), I'm going to integrate her with my non
FeLV cat (7 years old and healthy).
Sarai,I am so sorry to hear of your loss of Bella.Felv is such a heartbreaking
disease.I volunteer at a sanctuary for fiv+ and felv+ cats and I have seen many
last for several years with felv.Good thought to you and Bellas brother to get
through this sad time.Hugs to you.
We who choose
I am asking for some good thoughts and prayers for our newest handsome sweet
boy at the sanctuary.He is pretty sick right now.But I did see him grooming
himself yesterday before I left,so maybe it is a goos sign.He has a nasty
tongue ulcer he is being treated for.
Sandra I would go with the felv vaccine for your other cat.Better to give them
that defense than risk getting the disease.
We who choose to surround ourselves with lives more temporary
than our own,
Live within a fragile circle,easily and often breached.
Unable to accept its awful gaps.
I'm so sorry about Bella. I only ever had one leuk pos kitty that seemed to
have neurological symptoms. She lost the use of her back legs and it was very
difficult to watch. Bella is so lucky to have found you. I've had probably 15
or so leuk positives (have four now) and every one
Big get well vibes for Cleveland. The grooming is good.

I agree. I would also vaccinate the new kitten for distemper series. People
worry about their other kitties getting FeLV but the FeLV+ kitty is also at
risk of catching an upper respiratory infection from the other cat because
of her compromised immune system.
I would not introduce them until
Sarai, I was saddened to read that Bella has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. I
know how heart breaking it is to lose a little one.
Like others that have responded, I feed mine the best food they will eat, love
them, and keep stress to a minimum. So far I have rescued 6 positive kitties.
