Thank you for thinking of Ember, Cheri and El. She seems to be doing okay today. I got her to eat last night by feeding Fancy Feast Classic Chicken Feast. In another post, Christiane had suggested this as being like chocolate cake to cats, and Ember agrees. Unfortunately, the ingredients

Hi Chris, Welcome to the group. I had rats for several years, and I thought they were terrific pets, even tho many people were horrified at the idea of petting a rat :-) I have 15 rescued cats at home and 12 cats in a separate building who were all exposed to FelV. They are all over 2 years

Chris - I would search the archives on mixing. A lot of us mix our positive non-positive, vaccinated cats. I have done it for over 10 years with no transmission of the virus to my healthy cats. I even have had FIV cats mix with the FeLV cats with no problems. And, yes, I do retest my

My vet had me vaccinate every 6 months, but as my cats have gotten older I only do it every year. I figure at this point they should have enough immunity. Beth Don't Litter, Fix Your Critter! www.Furkids.org   From: Sharyl cline...@yahoo.com To:

There is relatively new treatment for tumors and cancers. It's called Neoplasene. There is a Yahoo group called Neoplasene for Cancer. See if you can go there and get some information. I'm currently dealing with a former colony cat (tame) who has bone cancer on her right hind thigh. Although

Sometimes, you can mix in a little of another food w. the FF… Just a little, though—they figure it out and then turn up their noses! LOL From: Felvtalk [mailto:felvtalk-boun...@felineleukemia.org] On Behalf Of Lance Sent: Tuesday, April 23, 2013 8:38 AM To: felvtalk@felineleukemia.org

Beth I didn't know you fostered FelV cats. Have you had any who eventually threw off the virus? All of the kittens I've taken in as FelV positive, who must have acquired the virus from their mother, have died within two years. However, from one litter of FelV kittens I have an male who is now 4

No, I have never seen one throw the virus off. I think fostering the FeLV cats is probably easier than fostering healthy cats, actually. I have done that plenty of times, too. At least I don't have to deal with constantly getting attached to cats only to have them adopted out I don't have to

I had three FeLv+ cats throw it off. They all three were adults. Bunny was the youngest. She tested positive when she was spayed at a shelter. They would usually euthanize them but for some reason she slipped through the cracks, I am pleased to say and the rescuer brought her to me knowing that
