Yes they ask for a donation to support the kitties left to them but it is up to
the individual - no set amount per cat. Here is the link to their web site.
Check out the Safety Net program.

Gentle hugs for Schatzi, Jack, Buster and Oni. I know how heartbreaking it is
to lose them. I've lost 5 positive rescues this year, four from the came
litter and feel your pain.
I understand your desire to do anything you can to help Rosie and Murphy.
Please let us know how they do
I wanted to give you an update on Autumn and the TCLI injection(Imulan).
When I brought her to the emergency center last Tuesday, she was
starting with respiratory distress and crying out. Her hematocrit was 4%.
She was on her way out. She got the transfusion - they called me
if you go to the cornell vet school site, you'll find the research from last
year about active virus being found in dried secretions up to a few days
after having been, expressed. this research is being used all over the
country as yet another reason to kill FeLVs, tho the professionals i've
Maybe it is not such a bad idea if checking out a sanctuary to ask how long the
cats typically live. As well as how they are funded and what happens to the
cats should something happen to them, etc.

I do hope that Autumn gets better with the LTCI. If she comes back by any
means from a HCT level of 4%, it will be quite a feat.
Just a couple of comments. First, as far as I have seen, there is very
little science to back up Imulan's claims. There have been no real trials,
just short term,
I am a member of this list who doesn't get a chance to spend time responding
to posts, but I would like to encourage those looking into sanctuaries to be
sure to visit them if at all possible and that is a great idea about asking
what happens to the cats or the sanctuary if the founders die or can
Thanks for writing about sanctuaries Carmen. You are better at articulating
the major points than I was.
Anyone traveling through northern IA should stop in for a visit at CW. What
really impressed me was the accomodations made for special needs kitties.

normal limits, from 9% to 42%

i've been mentioning for years that we, who are on the front lines of this,
should write up a home visit protocol for sanctuaries, so that all the
correct questions ARE asked
each of us has different ideas of what is important, and it's so important
for folks to recognize the difference
When I had this insane thought that I'd rehome my 2nd FELV + cat, the late
great Romeo, I learned that its not easy--particularly over the phone. But
the ONE thing that seemed to work real well is a vet reference. I found
vets, or rather the office manager, pretty clear in their assessments.
Jenny it is wonderful to hear that Autumn is recovering. I am
praying that TCLI will get her through this. We'll all be waiting for
her progress reports.
I know that many vets are suspicious of treatments outside of
their parameters. My vet was turned off Imulan by their inability to
My positive is at least 10 years old.
