Sharyl, I'm sorry for your loss of Mattie--what a special little girl she was, I'm always thankful to hear of FELV kittens who do get the chance to live out their lives, however short they may be. This story reminded me of my first FELV encounter, moved to a new office to find an injured

I'm lucky that I'm in the San Francisco/Bay Area. We have had low cost spay/neuter and feral cat programs for well over a decade so we don't have the kitten glut so many other places have. As a result, adoptions tend to be pretty strong around here. Can't imagine doing adoptions in West
