Re: [Felvtalk] Baby Bella

I'm so sorry Sarai. I've never seen the symptoms you described.
It this must have been just terrifying to watch.  You did the right
thing to put Bella down, but I know how hard it is to lose a precious
baby.

Lorrie

 My girl kitty, Bella, 4 months old had a pretty bad herpes
 infection with a fever of 105 for over two weeks. She stopped
 eating her hard food and I so I was spoon feeding her baby food to
 try to get her to gain weight. She was also on antibiotics- She had
 good days and bad days, it was quite the roller coaster for those
 weeks.  She seemed to be doing better this past week- interacting
 more, eating lots, etc.  Then all of a sudden, in the middle of the
 night on Wednesday, her neurological system went haywire. She began
 biting herself uncontrollably, running into walls, stumbling around
 and she lost most of her vision. Within 6 hours of the symptoms
 beginning, we were forced to love enough to let her go. Our new vet
 was wonderful and helped us through the whole process with
 kindness. He thinks that the leukemia went systemic and settled in
 her brain. It feels like it happened so fast. While we are still
 grieving our loss, we are also very worried about our other kitten.
 While he is FeLV positive, he has not had any clinical issues. He
 seems perfectly normal, loving and active.
 
 I am wondering if there are others out there with a not sick FELV
 kitty and if so, what kind of measures are you taking to help
 increase their chance of making it through this? Our vet said that
 if he makes it to 6 months old, we may be able to re-test to see if
 he has suppressed the virus. He is just over 4 months old now and
 has lost his sister, which has been very stressful on him. He is an
 indoors only kitty. We also have him taking Lysine (to keep herpes
 symptoms at bay) and Pet-tinic (vitamins).

i admire you for working with the sanctuary.  i don't think i could do it.  i 
would be bringing home everry one of them.  i have 2 who came from a no kill 
sanctuary.  they were 10 years old, healthy enough, but Lil Bit had an eye 
infection, was very timid and she and Casey were not grooming themselves.  they 
had been there for over a year.   now their true natures have come out.  Casey 
is an alpha female who is still having arguments with Annie who is also an 
alpha.  Annie is felv positive, but apparently there is not too much stress 
since she is fat and sassy as can be.  Lil Bit is still a bit timid, but she 
now roams the whole house.  she still has to have her food in her room, but 
now comes and sits on my lap and sleeps on the bed with the others.  Casey goes 
outside, Lil Bit does not even want too.  she is content to snooze away the day 
whereever she wants and eat.  i think the stress of being in a shelter 
situation brings on a lot of problems.  cages are small compared to a house or 
outdoors, they can't move around a lot and get exercise.  Pals tried to remedy 
that by putting some of the cats in a community cage, a 12 x 12 foot chain 
link fencing with baskets hung from the sides for them to sleep in, small 
disposable litter boxes and food/water bowls on the floor.  of course they 
could not clean the boxes as often as they should since volunteers come only at 
8am and after work.  Casey still has a problem with litter boxes.  she is an 
over achiever and stands outside of the box, pulling a lot of the clean litter 
out all over the floor trying to cover.  she will cover for the others.  i have 
5 boxes and clean them 3 times a day so there is no odor, she just got into the 
habit from the shelter. all but Lil Bit and Nit Noy (Thai for little one) go 
outside during the day weather permitting.  this year, this is not too often.  
we have had so much rain and now in the middle of July, it is still raining at 
least 3 days of each week and night time temps are in the low 60's.  days we 
can't go out, i feed canned food.  that seems to settle them down.  today is in 
the low 70's, raining off and on and Casey is on father's bed, Bob and Lil Bit 
are on the cat tree in the corner, Nit Noy is on the rug by the bed and Homey 
is in her bed in my room while Annie is on my bed.  all of this elads up to my 
idea for your babies:  maybe they should have a large enclosed room where they 
could go for exercise and socialization.  furnish it like a room with old 
furniture so they could be in a more normal situation.  that would reduce 
stress.  even if you only took one at a time, it would give that one a chance 
for a more relaxed time of day.  course, don't put 2 alphas like Annie and 
Casey in together.  good luck with your babies.  dorlis

glad you stopped going to that vet.  it is not for him to decide if the 
burden of caring for them is too much for anyone.  that is up to you.  now to 
your little boy.  Love him a lot, keep on doing what yo are doing and if the 
others are all vacinnated, let him join the group.  i have 2 felv pos kitties.  
we know Annie is 4 years old and Nit Noy is around 1 year.  she showed up at 
the house one night.  something had bitten off most of her tail.  probably a 
coyote trying to catch her altho an old timer wise to the ways of the woods, 
etc.  said could have been wild mink or weasel since she is so small 5lbs, 5 
ounces then.  when she got to 6 lbs and went out of heat, got her spayed and 
started shots for rabies, distemper, etc.  she and Bob have a love/hate 
relationship, always fussing at each other, but no serious biting.  everyone si 
healthy outside of 2 with candida in their ears, but we started treating that  
and it has improved.  the key is to head to the vet at the first sign of 
something not normal behavior, you can nip it in the bud before it becomes a 
full blown problem.  dorlis

re medicating:  wouldn't it be lovely if we could talk to them and explain why 
we are doing this.  then they would not consider us the most horrible living 
creature ever and fight us so.  i have 2 like this and they both have candida 
in their ears.  i have found that sitting in a chair with a solid back, holding 
them between myself and the chair helps.  if i am pilling, sometimes they hold 
the pill in their mouth and spit it out as soon as they get away from me.  vet 
said to pill, gently stroke their throat downward to stimulate swallowing.  
they still hate me for bout 1/2 hr after.  dorlis

 Since you already have

Hello,
 
After weeks and weeks of searching for a sanctuary in CA that takes in FeLV 
cats, I finally found one for the FeLV kitty I rescued. I'm very happy yet sad 
because saying goodbye will be hard.
I will miss him.
 
He has ben accepted to
'Not So' Purrrfect Angels 
A non-profit humane
organization and sanctuary for felines
located at 7312 East Church Ave., Fresno, CA 93727.
http://www.purrrfectangels.org/index.html
 
Do any of you know about this place?  Have you visited?
 
A donation is required and I have around $110.00. I spend all of my college 
savings on his vet visits so this is all I have left.
I would like to give at least $250.00.
Please spread the word about the fundraiser page I create it for 
Snowball. I will send the link to Felvtalk.
Anything is welcome.
 
Thanks

2009-07-15 Thread dlgegg
either you read me wrong or i goofed which is very possibly the case.  either 
way, Annie is only 5 years old.  i got her when she was 4 and she tested 
positive for both tests.  she had been a patient of my vet all her life and 
never been pos before.  we assumed that the stress of loosing her owner (liver 
cancer), being locked in her owner's trailer for 3 weeks with no contact other 
than someone changing the box and giving her food once a day and then being 
shoved into a box, brought to the vet and then coming to my house with 2 other 
cats when she had been in 1 cat house was all just too much for her.  i plan to 
have her tested again to see if she is still pos.  could be that since she is 
in a more stable invironment, her system can overcome it ans she will be neg.   
a long shot, but worth the try.  so far, she is fine and gets Hills Science 
diet along with the others.   saw a new canned food at PetsMart and got a can 
to try.  it is organic, has no corn, wheat or soy, is made in Canadaand has 95% 
salmon, mackerel and sardines.  smelly, but boy do they love it.  they ahve 
other flavors, but this is their favorite.  if you want to check them out, Blue 
Seal, po box 8000, Londpnderry, NH 03053, USA - 800367-2730 - 
www.bynaturepetfoods.com.  it is pricey (around 1.40  for a 6.5 oz can, but i 
only use it for rainy days when they cannot go outside.  keeps them calmer.  
otherwise, every time i move they run in front of me hoping i am heading for 
the door and they can escape.  i got a large cat tree from Foster and Smith so 
anyone who wants to escape the others can head for the den at top and 
disappear.  i do think lack of stress is the most important thing.  all of my 
rescued babies put on weight, start grooming, just behaving normal after they 
get here.  i have enough room so they can each have their own special place 
which helps.  that and watching for signs of problems so i can get them to the 
vet asap to head off big problems i think are the 2 most important things to 
do.  dorlis

may be a tiny sting, but the trick is to get them to hold still and allow you 
to stick them.  i have to that go balistic when i pick them up for meds.  they 
know what i am up to and start running when they see me.  even tried doing it 
at different times of the day.  dorlis

Yes I do give my cats vit b injections, in fact I have a bottle at 
 the vets that I forgot to pick up today.  Sometimes they notice 
 sometimes they don't, it is said to sting but the tiny needle you use 
 they can barely feel and you inject such a small amount by the time they 
 notice a sting, if there is one, it is done.  My cats don't mind it at all.
 
 Get insulin needles from your local pharmacy.  I use these, Sure 
 Comfort, Insulin syringe.  I think I paid .20 or .25 cents each and I 
 usually buy a box of 100.  They come in a package of 10, with 10 
 packages to a box.:
 
 U - 100 insulin
 29 gauge 1/2 inch needle
 Super slimline needle
 
 I paid $20.00 or $25.00 dollars a box, they last forever.

No, not at all.  I thought I recalled something negative but I checked old 
emails and it was about a different place.  So I know nothing about Not So 
Purrfect Angels.
