you have no way of knowing if it was the stress or him, but then only God knows 
that.  you can't in hindsight blame yourself for something you could not 
forsee.  i imagine that he was just warning you of the possibility.  it would 
be wrong of him not to.  that is why even tho it may cost more, i will just eat 
less and make more trips to town to make up for it, i use my regular vet.  i 
know his feelings about fiv and felv, we are on the same wavelength, and i 
trust him.  i have 2 felv kitties and he has spayed both.  they both came thru 
with no problems.  he is also a uscker like i am and takes care of street cats 
and finds home for them.  i have 2 of them.  so don't be hard on yourself.  you 
tried your best and your baby knows you loved her.  that is what is important.

 It wasn't my regular vet  - it was the spay/neuter vet who comes to the 
 shelter where I work. He's altered many of my cats and they've all come 
 through fine. But this vet also thinks all cats with FeLV should be 
 euthanized. He's entitled to his opinion. But it was odd this morning when I 
 dropped her off - he said You know, this can stress out a cat with leukemia 
  bring on symptoms. I'm just letting you know so you don't blame me if 
 something happens. Well, yeah, we all know you need to keep these cats away 
 from stress. How many cats have I had spayed or neutered with FeLV  they've 
 been OK? Does this sound suspicious or what?

 I am so sorry for you loss. You did not kill your cat. You were being
 responsible to have her spayed. Your vet knew her history--please do not
 beat yourself up. I wish there were more words to help. Please know you are
 not to blame yourself.

 Bridget is dead. I had her spayed today and apparently she died very quickly
 under anesthesia. She was my baby. I would have done anything for her and
 now she's dead. It has been a miserable few weeks with Frosty Paws and then
 Baby Girl but this has broken my heart. She was doing so well. Could it have
 been the LTCI? I have to know whether I'm responsible for killing her.
 Please, if anyone knows whether the LTCI could have had something to do with
 it, maybe made her more sensitive to being put under, please let me know, I
 have to know whether I killed my cat.

[Felvtalk] Bridget has sent me another cat

2010-03-20 Thread LauraM
First, thank you everyone for all your kindness and support over Bridget's 
passing. I appreciate it so much. But she's sent me another FeLV+ friend to 
help! On the evening of 3/17, the day she died, I checked the adoptable 
positives section of the website. Lo and behold, someone in GA had posted an 
available kitty just the day before. I never, ever check those postings, ever, 
but I figured the best way to honor Bridget, Baby Girl, Frosty Paws and the 
rest would be to take in another needy baby. These kind people had found this 
little girl in their neighborhood, but couldn't keep her due to the wife's 
allergies. They'd been boarding her at their vet's office for 5 weeks but 
hadn't been able to find her a home. Anyway, they brought me the cat yesterday, 
and she's just wonderful...still a little nervous around my big boys, but 
she'll be fine. Maybe this was meant to be.

It was.  Bridget was watching after you just as Dixie watched after  
me.  She, like Bridget, knew that too much grief was not good for her  
Person and being busy is a good distraction.  Dixie sent me two very  
small kittens, Sir Copper and Sir Thomas Cougar, who are now very big  
cats.  If you ever doubt Bridget's  love, look at the new little one.

I am certain this was meant to be. What a wonderful gift and what a blessing
for you and the little one. 
What wonderful people to board her for that long. This little girl was just
waiting for you
Thank-you, Bridget. (Keisha sent me Tessa after she died- she is almost the
same cat, even down to the raspy meow).
