 yesterday the last of
 my  six that tested positive in March
 2010.
  Thanks for being with us - - lights in the
 darkness.  I had suspected she was crashing.  Vets
 thought it was dental . . .   two weeks
 later.  will leave it there.
  Now she joins her intrepid son Isaac, Mama
 and Luscious, Torie Rose and BreAnne.

 She came to me two and a
 half years ago when she was around 9 months old. She had
 been abandoned at an apartment complex, rescued but then
 tested FeLv+. She was brought to me to see if she would turn
 negative. She did! I kept her anyway because she had a few
 bad habits, like biting my fingers when I was sleeping and
 trying to tear apart my iPod headphones. She was very
 mischievous. I named her Bunny because she was brought to me
 on Easter Sunday.  She has lived with me and two other
 cats in my bedroom/home office since that Easter in 2011.
 About two weeks ago I noticed a change in her behavior. She
 no longer pestered Delilah, the resident female cat in the
 room and she seemed to lose interest in sleeping on the bed
 with me and Samson and Delilah (the two other cats in the
 room).
  However she was eating normally and nothing else seemed out
 of place. I assumed that it was the change in the weather
 from very hot to nice, cool evenings and then to rain. On
 Saturday of last week she seemed lethargic. She was not
 eating her usual amount of food and not drinking her usual
 amount of water. I checked her gums to see if it might be
 stomatitis or some bad tooth upsetting her but her gums were
 very pale and so was her tongue. I immediately thought it
 was flea anemia. I took her to the vet on Tuesday because
 Monday is usually very busy with dogs there. She was more
 lethargic and depressed by then and her appetite had all but
 disappeared. She was still drinking water. She had no fleas
 so I asked the vet to re-test her for FeLv. Sure enough, she
 was positive. She had all the classic symptoms of active
 FeLv. I was heart broken but still, I asked him to give her
 some meds to make her more comfortable and perhaps get back
 her appetite. He gave
  her cortisone. Today, she was no better. She just lay on
 her towel and couldn't make it to the litter box
 although it was just a few steps away. I took her in again
 and he gave her some fluids, not too much because he said it
 would make her even more anemic. He gave her a little more
 cortisone to try to kick start her appetite. I had been
 syringe feeding her by then. He also gave her a small dose
 of Convenia and some B-complex but nothing helped. She
 passed several hours after the vet visit. I probably should
 have had him help her pass but I just didn't want to
 give up hope. 
 
 There
 is a question here, in all this upsetting dialog. My other
 two cats who slept with me and Bunny and groomed each other,
 ate with each other, drank and used the same litter box are
 around 7 years old. The vet told me that once they are into
 adulthood, they are not as likely to get FeLv as they would
 if they were under 2 years old. Is this true? I will have
 them tested in about 3 weeks anyway to see what happened, if
 anything. Also, has anyone had the experience of a young cat
 throwing off the virus and turning negative, then turning
 positive again after a year, or was that second test after I
 had held her in isolation for 4 months a false
 negative?
 Right
 now I'm fostering a kitten who has tested negative for
 FIV/FeLv. She is several rooms away from where Bunny has
 lived. They never came in contact with each other but I have
 walked from my bedroom into the kitten's room to feed,
 clean, etc.. Did I put her at risk?
 This
 is desperately upsetting. I have decided not to take in any
 more fosters with FeLv. I have never had this happen before.
 Most of my turned cats are still with me and are
  well into several years of adulthood. I usually don't
 have good results with getting turned cats adopted because
 most people don't want the possibility that the cat is
 harboring the disease. Maybe Bunny had it in her bone marrow
 and tested negative on the regular SNAP test. I should have
 tested with the IFA also but don't have much money to
 spare.

We did the ultrasound Friday. It showed enlarged spleen  kidneys. Vet thinks 
spleen was probably cancerous. I was not putting him through any more. He had 
just been laying around for 2 1/2 weeks, mostly having to be force fed. I did 
that with my 1st FeLV  I said I would never do it again. I did it at 1st 
because he had a URI  I knew he could get over that. But once that was gone he 
didn't get better as far as activity  eating.It was a really sad decision. I 
had had a tough time with him at first because he peed on everything. Thanks to 
some things I learned from watching Jackson Galaxy we got him out of that habit 
 he was
 becoming a total sweetheart. He just loved to walk up to you an put his head 
against you. Some hit you harder than others. This was pretty difficult. The 
lady who found him is having him cremated for me.
Thanks guys for just being there.

Poor Bubba! I'm sorry he's having such a rough time, and a rude bite on the 
tail to top it off. Hopefully he can clear the Hemobart and move on. I'll add 
him to the purrayers list.
Best wishes to you and Bubba,
Lance

Hey guys need some positive energy for one of my FeLV fosters - Bubba. He had 
been battling a URI. Tried a couple different antibiotics, and finally, after a 
week the URI cleared   he started eating on his own last Sunday. Well as soon 
as I took him off the Doxy he started going down again. 
We went to the shelter this afternoon  thankfully they had a wonderful vet 
volunteering who has experience in FeLV kitties.
We're wondering now if he has Hemobart since he starting going down after 
withdrawing the Doxy. His gums were pink, though. I've had a constant battle 
with fleas. Advantage was no longer working so I switched  Frontline, but that 
doesn't seem to be working well either.
He got fluids, more Doxy, Prenisone, Cyproheptadine, Capstar  AD. 
On top of that it looks like he has a cat bite o
 his tail. Poor baby. Going to go home tonight  spend some one-on-one time 
with him.
Just being able to talk to you guys about these babies really helps. At least I 
feel like someone understands how helpless I feel sometimes.
