[Felvtalk] Anemia blood transfusions

2013-02-27 Thread Marnie Miszewski
I apologize in advance if this topic has been discussed recently, but my baby is sick and I haven't been on the computer much. My FELV cat Thomas O' Malley, has non regenerative anemia. He wasn't showing any signs of illness until one day he spent the entire day hiding in my closet. I

I wish it were only us humans that were going to miss Chanel. She was a beautiful solid white little princess that came to my rescue from Animal Services because she was FELV+. She spent a few days as the only cat in her room before 5 tiny new black and white additions arrived. They were only 9

Thanks Lorrie! It's nice to have validation from someone else who is doing this. I'm sure you understand when I say how frustrating it is for me every time I hear about a sanctuary that doesn't have the animals best interest at heart. Not only is it horrible for the animals in their care,

2010-08-25 Thread Marnie Miszewski
As you might remember I posted some time ago about my inability to find insurance because my shelter adopts out FELV+ cats. I just wanted to update you on my progress. The next set of companies I tried gave me a new reason. They said because I live in Florida and shelters in the states of Florida,

2010-06-30 Thread Marnie Miszewski
I need Liability insurance. I tried Kennel Pack and they sent me an apology letter. They won't insure me because I adopt out healthy cats and keep FELV positive cats in the same building. It's not like I keep them together. They each have their own cageless room. I also had to promise never to

I know there are others on here who have FELV shelters and I'm wondering who you have for insurance providers. I keep getting turned down for insurance because I have FELV positive cats at my facility. Those cats are the reason I started the shelter and I'm not letting them go. PLEASE HELP! I

2010-06-02 Thread Marnie Miszewski
Just wanted to introduce myself, I've been reading the board for awhile.. My history with FELV cats started out not so good. I found a beautiful gray kitty that I spent months feeding outdoors trying to coax her in. At last she rewarded me for my patience and allowed me to pick her up and bring
