She has both a Facebook page and a website. I have had a few dealings with her 
in the past know people that have sent FeLV cats to her.  She is well known in 
sanctuary circles and has a very good reputation. Personally I would not worry 
about sending a cat to her.

I love this group. I love the people in it. I love the passion the members of this group have for the kitties who are unfortunate enough to meet up with this deadly retrovirus, and the dedication to improving infected cats' lives. Anyone who comes in here with less than the best of intentions for FeLV positive kitties understandably will not be coddled and cosseted. And even the person receiving the "scolding" will understand that it is coming from a place deep in the heart, borne of love and compassion, if they are honestly looking at what is being said to them. I don't believe anyone could possibly be naive enough to NOT SEE where this criticism
 of them stems from, even if they refuse to state this fact "out loud". lol

And, knowing this, the smart thing to do would be to stick around and get a clue, because I am sure that with the desire to do right by their cat, anyone would be welcome and accepted here. In fact, this is what everyone is actually hoping for, I'll bet any money. These people in here are EXPERTS at FeLV+ cats, info, treatment, everything. This is a place you want to be if you have an FeLV+ cat you care about. Miracles of understanding and knowledge happen here. You say you treat them good and care about them/her. Awesome. Just say you want to help the kitties... we can help you help them.

Step up, Sir. Do the right thing, please.(**And I agree... Ben does rock! I am in awe. )

How Old is My Pet? Correctly Calculate Your Dog or Cat's Age!By Webvet | 
Pets – Fri, Mar 2, 2012 11:22 AM EST

By Gayle Hickman 

Most people think that calculating the age of dogs and cats in human years is 
quite simple: multiply their age by seven. For 
example, a 4-year-old dog or cat would actually be 28 years old in human years. 

But when you really begin weighing out the arithmetic, this method 
doesn't add up. Say a 1-year-old dog is the equivalent of a 7-year-old 
human -- get out of here! How many 7-year-old humans are sexually active
 and capable of reproducing? Dogs and cats are much more likely to have 
babies at 1 year old or even at 10 years old, than any person who is 7 
or 70. 

DOGS 

Aging is much faster during a dog's first two years but varies among 
breeds. Large breeds, while they mature quicker, tend to live shorter 
lives. By the time they reach 5 they are considered senior dogs. 
Medium-sized breeds take around seven years to reach the senior stage, 
while small and toy breeds do not become seniors until around 10. 

Related: Top 5 Ways to Improve Life for Your Senior Dog 

Many veterinarians agree that a pretty good guess on the age of pets can
 be made using the following formula. Although still simple, it is much 
more accurate than the seven-year method. 

Assume that a 1-year-old dog is equal to a 12-year-old human and a 
2-year-old dog is equal to a 24-year old human. Then add four years for 
every year after that. (Example: A 4-year-old dog would be 32 in human 
years.) 

Since this method takes into consideration the maturity rate at the 
beginning of a dog's life and also the slowing of the aging process in 
his later years, Martha Smith, director of veterinary services at 
Boston's Animal Rescue League, feels that this is the more accurate 
calculation formula. Here is a chart, for easy reference: 

 
  A dog's average lifespan is around 12 or 13 years, but again, this 
varies widely by breed. The larger your dog is, the less time it will 
live. Female dogs tend to live a little longer. 

CATS 

Now let's take a glimpse at a simple formula for calculating feline age in 
human years. 

Assume that a 1-year-old cat is equal to a 15-year-old human and a 
2-year-old cat is equal to a 24-year-old human. Then add four years for 
every year after that. (Example: A 4-year-old cat would be 32 in human 
years.) 

The following chart shows this formula of calculation:

Sweet, little heartling was found under a car after the October 29th snow 
storm. She has shown nothing but affection since the day she was picked up, and 
she will melt your heart with every purr. Given the name Jiggy because she does 
a little jig before she goes after a ball or stuffed mouse. She has the most 
striking green eyes and whimsical black and white markings. She loves to cuddle 
up against your cheek with her charcoal black nose and white whiskers. She is a 
petite, 9 month old and is  FeLV+. Besides having Leukemia she is healthy,

Here at Little Cheetah, we believe that any cat that is living a good 
quality of life, or has an excellent prognosis of recovering to live a 
good quality of life once rehabilitated DESERVES a chance! We support The 
Asilomar Accords +1. What does the +1 mean? It's simple, it means that while we 
support 
the typical ideals of the general No Kill community, it also means we 
take it one step farther, to include all asymptomatic FELV+ and FIV+ 
cats, as well as any other cat in danger of being discriminated against 
due to medical limitation or disability! 
We take exception to Asilomar Accord Part III, Unhealthy and Untreatable, 
Paragraph 2: (2) are suffering from a disease, injury, or congenital or 
hereditary condition that adversely affects the animal's health or is likely to 
adversely affect the animal's health in the future, and are not likely to 
become healthy or treatable even if provided 
the care typically provided to pets by reasonable and caring pet 
owners/guardians in the community; 
We feel that it is unfair to condemn an animal to death for something 
that COULD happen many years in the future. We feel that QUALITY or life
 is much more important than quantity of life - even short lives deserve
 to be lived! We also believe that the typically provided care that 
the average pet receives should not be the end all cut off point to 
which we should give up on an animal. Special pets happen, and there 
ARE special people out there willing to provide exceptional care for 
EXCEPTIONS to this rule! We believe that there are conditions that are 
not treatable and that do cause disability, that do not cause suffering,
 like Cerebellar Hypoplasia, Blindness, and Terminal Heart conditions. 
We do not feel these cats are candidates for Euthanasia!
Then, there's the simple fact... To us, you can't be No Kill if you're
 still routinely euthanising healthy, asymptomatic cats because of a 
test result!

Do you know of another NO KILL shelter or sanctuary that does not kill FELV+ or 
FIV+ cats? If so, let us know!

  If he was positive on just the ELISA test, then there is still a chance for 
  his immune system to clear the virus. You will need to test him again in a 
  month to give him that chance to be able to fight it off. If he is positive 
  on both tests, then you need to start treating him (interferon for 
  starters). I don't have experience with all the treatments but I know many 
  people on this thread can help you.
  
  I'll be thinking of Fletch and hope he can pull through this. With the

Kelly,
 I can understand the second test and yea you need to wait that time. Im sorry 
that you cant find anyone in your area to hold the cat for the 6 weeks but 
please DON'T try and put down sanctuaries.  We like any rescue look for 
donations and the good will of people to help us help the animals. Yes almost 
all sanctuaries that take an animal for life ask for fees( some more than 
others) but your talking the care and vetting for what could be 10 or so years 
and with FeLV that can get really expensive.
I wish you the best of luck in finding a foster for him, and i pray that he is 
- so he can be adopted.

I can't even get anyone to hold on to a healthy kitten temporarily - all my

cat by the day and it really is not fair to her (or the cat) to put him through 
treatment and then have him PTS.   We have an FELV sanctuary, but unfortunately 
they only take in cats when there is money to be made off them.

We did ship a cat to Best Friends once, but they do not always have room either.

Like I said, this list has always been my go-to resource for FELV cats and I 
have found placement for every single one in the past.

It is possible he has a false positive, but as he is anemic and sick, I'm 
leaning towards true +.  Unfortunately as I said there is no one to hold him 
for 6 weeks and if we put him back outside he will be dead in 6 weeks.

Hey folks, got an emergency with a possible FELV+ cat in Austin, Texas.  He's 
had one snap test (and that's with the felv/fiv/heartworm test, which we know 
there are a lot of false +s with).  There is no one to hold him for a 
confirmatory IFA.  

Someone wrote me asking for help, this is her description of him:

He is slated to be euthanized at 5pm today. This boy is very affectionate, 
loving to be held, petted, scratched, etc. He was even purring while being 
petted at the counter at the vet's office with all the strange scents and 
animal noises going on! 

He's pretty sick at the moment. Vet says he's extremely anemic. That's why he 
hasn't been eating much. And the heat has exacerbated the problem since he's 
been an outdoor cat. Vet also says the condition is treatable, but the 
treatment makes him very infectious. So what he needs is an indoor home either 
in a one-cat household or in a house where all the cats are feline leukemia 
positive. 

It's breaking my heart because he's such a sweetie. I'm hoping to find someone 
who can provide a home for this baby so he won't have to be euthanized.

I've asked for pics  etc

I also asked for an extra day which is hopefully being negotiated.  I know

I have never heard of this, but we started using coconut oil because it
 tolerates higher temperatures than other oils before becoming saturated

 I was wondering if anyone has heard of this, a woman on FB is claiming 
 that
 coconut oil given for approximately 4 weeks will cure a cat with FeLV. I
 wrote to her and told her that there was in fact no cure and she told me 
 to
 talk to a man named Mark McCandlish, though there are several so I was not
 able to look him up.

 I am a licensed vet tech and am constantly researching FeLV and have not
 seen anything of the sort out there. One would think if a cure would have
 popped up that it would be talked about everywhere especially by the FeLV
 cat parents crowd.

 I find it frustrating when people post information on FB under cats that 
 are
 in need of homes and do not have their facts straight. They are either
 sharing that FeLV is this freakishly contagious disease and that all FeLV
 cats must be kept separate or euthanized or they are spouting about 
 cures.
 Those of us who have FeLV babies and are praying for that cure to save 
 them
 don't want that fake carrot dangled in front of our faces.

 Anyway sorry for the rant, I just wanted to be sure I am not out of the 
 loop
 before I keep arguing with her about it.

 Also there are 2 beautiful, sweet cats in Austin TX who are felv + and in
 need of a home asap. If anyone may be interested please let me know and I
 will forward the link with the info and pics. They are incredibly sweet 
 and
 very cute!

Subject: [Felvtalk] Need Sanctuary for Kittens


My rescue group has two 8 week old FeLV positive kittens that need a place to 
go.  I'm in the Atlanta area but I don't think there are any FeLV sanctuaries 
nearby or even in the whole state.  The lady who has been fostering them is 
willing to drive almost anywhere.  She has family in PA and goes up there 
several times a year so driving a distance isn't a problem for her.  Plus we 
have other people who can drive them to various other states.  The kittens will 
be fully vetted and spayed or neutered.  My rescue is a very small group.  We 
don't have a shelter facility, we just have foster homes.  We don't have a long 
term place for the kittens.  Can anyone help or offer suggestions?

We've only had one ELISA test done on the kittens but the mother cat had two 
positive ELISA tests and we're waiting on the IFA results for her.  Because of 
that I'm thinking the kittens who tested positive are really positive.  Think 
we should do an IFA test on them?  I feel certain that they are truly positive 
but who knows.  Also two of their littermates have tested negative on their 
first ELISA.  How long should we wait before re-testing?  Do you guys think 
those kittens could really be negative or is it more likely that it just isn't 
showing up yet for some reason?  I know I've heard some of you say that you had 
a positive and a negative kitten that were littermates that came from a 
positive mother cat.  But does that happen very often?

Please let me know if anyone can put me in touch with a sanctuary for the 
kittens.  We might need one for the mother but for now I'll just worry about 
the kittens.  Oh, we do have someone who is taking the two negative kittens and 
will hold them until they can be re-tested.

Re: [Felvtalk] coconut oil

2011-04-27 Thread Second Chance Meows
First off THERE IS NO CURE for FeLV.
  I have heard of all kinds of things that are supposed to give great 
extensions of life to cats with FeLV, but have yet to see any kind of results.  
After 8 years of specializing in nothing but Fe-Luk cats i have found that, 
love, attention, basic supplements ( iron,L-lysine, and the like) are the best 
treatments for them.
Adding things like high O2 water helps as well.( moving water not in a bowl).
I know that many are going to say things like interferon, transfusions and like 
are good for them but they only prolong the inevitable.  This virus will at 
some point in the cats life cause issues that will have grave consequences.

 I've mentioned my kitty Two Face earlier because she died two weeks  
 ago and when they did the necropsy they found out she had a huge  
 tumor and was FeLV +.  Since then I've had a few of my other kitties  
 tested with the combo/snap test at the vet's office.  All have come  
 out negative so far, thank the Lord for that.  These other kitties  
 that have tested negative lived with Two Face for over a year.  
 Sharing litterboxes, food bowls and all that stuff.  I would think  
 that would mean that they had enough exposure to the virus to get it  
 in their system and that they either extinguished the virus or put  
 it into a dormant status.  Is that a reasonable assumption?  My main  
 question now is should I give them a FeLV vaccination.  If they did  
 get the virus in their system and extinguished it then they're  
 immune for life, right?  If so, there's no need for a vaccination.  
 Is it possible with all that exposure that they didn't get enough of  
 the virus into their system to do any harm?  If that's the case then  
 I should vaccinate them?  I just don't know how they could not have  
 gotten enough exposure since they lived together and shared  
 everything for over a year.

 Thoughts?

This is the problem with most sanctuaries.  It's a flawed business model.  A 
sanctuary by definition offers lifetime care  So they fill up fast and, as 
the population ages, become more and more expensive to maintain.  And usually 
the people who try to start sanctuaries keep taking in new animals, sometimes 
because they need the surrender fee to keep the operation running and sometimes 
because they simply have a hard time saying no.  This is just not a 
sustainable model.

The few good long term sanctuaries really limit the population.  And they very 
often have an adoption component that allows them to make space by placing 
animals in good homes.  You just can't keep taking animals in with no way to 
decrease the population.  It becomes unwieldy very quickly.

 There is a place in the Houston area and I have first hand
 knowledge of what a horrid place this is, yet people still
 take their cats there.  It is called Cat Nap Estates
 and IN MY OPINION, the woman running it should not care for
 potted plants.  I had her hold two feral cats for a
 couple of months while we were moving and our house was
 being built.  They went completely vetted, yet they
 came back with a litney of illnesses and so terrified. 
 The vet said she didn't think the female was ever let out of
 her carrier because it stunk so badly they had to throw it
 away.  I called the SPCA and made a cruelty report and
 some of the cats tested positive for Feluk and these cats
 were in the general population.  I have heard other
 horror stories about her and her sanctuary from others
 too.
  
 She may have started out with good intentions, but the road
 to h*ll is paved with good intentions.

 foster/home ASAP
 
  Hello,
 
 I was not able to attach a picture, but please e-mail me if anyone would
 like pics especially if you are able to help spread the word for this SUPER
 sweet kitty Weasley.
 
 Weasley has twice tested FELV+ on snap tests and the rescuer does not have
 funds for an IFA.  It is a bit of a complicated story, my friend who rescued
 him was volunteering at a high volume low-cost spay day when sweet little
 Weasley was brought in, he had horrible scabies and the person who brought
 him wouldn't keep him and he was going to be euthanized.   My friend took
 him home, treated him for scabies (he was neutered at the clinic but not
 tested), and came accross another rescue volunteer who wished to adopt him,
 which she did but he since tested + for FELV twice and so she returned him.
 Since his history is unknown, we do not know if he was born with it/infected
 as a kitten or more recently as a teen on the streets.
 
 My rescue friend is in a difficult situation, she is one who saves so many
 cats that no one else steps up to help and is loaded with more than 30 cats
 and fosters, including several very hard to place special needs cats
 (including a somewhat traumatized, 4 paw declaw deaf white kitty who was
 living on the streets and needs a home badly as well), and her young husband
 is going through chemo for a brain tumor.  She is a graduate student with a
 lot on her hands and mounting cat situations and has no where to keep this
 sweet boy separate other than caged, she has to be careful since she has so
 many fosters to be adopted out who can't be exposed.
 
 Weasley is so sweet and described to have the personality of a puppy!  He
 has a shortie tail, about 1/3 - 1/2 of a regular tail, making him even
 cuter.  I was told he is about 6 months old.
 
 If anyone in Florida can help find a foster or permanent home for Weasley,
 they may contact me or my friend Olya @ olyagr...@gmail.com
 
 Thanks for reading!

that's so awesome, Joslin!  
 
My vet is young and open minded - the clinic onwers of the place she is at 
always 'suggests' that FIV and FeLV kitties be put down.  Because we have both, 
and have gone through learning experiences with these kitties, she no longer 
suggests this to clients.  Same with the staff there.  We are in a position to 
change minds. When people chat with me in the waiting room and ask about our 
cute cat, I always work it in that he's FIV and that we have a FeLV too.  I 
remember when I was uneducated about this and thought there were no options 
because that is what I had been told by 'experts', and my mind was changed.

had an IFA and sometimes only one ELISA.  Obviously, this doesn't sit quite
right with me, and I need an IFA.  Of course, it's an expensive test and
totally understandable why it's not done as much.  I have offered to pay for
one (for a kitty who has lived in a cage for a year) and wish I could get

I'm so touched by all the passion and committment out there for these
special kitties.  You wouldn't believe the long, stunned silence on the

favorite local shelter takes care of these guys, but I am definitely going
to redirect my other donations to smaller groups that care for these
sweethearts - that welcome them with open arms.  
 
I realize, too, that having Whismy come into my life, for however long it

[Felvtalk] another passing

2010-11-26 Thread Second Chance Meows
tonight we lost our queen, Lita. our very first FeLV cat, she was 18 yrs old. 
Lita started out as Pink at the SPCA. she was the house cat there for a few 
years, and was given to me after finding out that my chemo had failed and what 
i 
had would eventually kill me. This huge torte was a pissy old girl and would 
hiss at everything. she at her best was about 20 lbs of pure joy. she would 
come 
up to you and head butt you to get petted, and then jump in your lap and just 
lay there.
Lita died at home surrounded by those who loved her, laying on my daughters 
jacket with her by her side petting her to the end
Lita had been with us for 8 long years and had been treated for everything from 
Uri's to arthritis, to the starting of a feline form of glaucoma, but she held 
on and fought for all this time finally giving in to liver failure.

Safe travels across the bridge Lita. you will be missed. thank you for making 
Second Chance possible

I know i don't send a lot of things here but we here at Second Chance try to do 
the best we can while running a full house. Please remember that the smaller 
rescues and homes like us do this from our own pockets. Please help the smaller 
sanctuaries like ours continue to give love and hope to our furry families.

 Belinda,
 I have a problem. Over the last month I have taken in 4 persians. They all 
have
 been in rough shape and all found within a 2 block area. Appears a breeder is
 dumping in  this area. Anyway the last one we took in yesterday and he is a 
very
 tiny male, black and white and has an old broken jaw (one of the others had a
 broken jaw too). Anyway he is a young guy (approx. 8 months old) and skin and
 bones. Took him to the vet yesterday as he looked awful and found out he has
 feline Luek. Did not know if you knew someone that would take a persian with
 leuk. I will hang on to him till tommorow and if you know anyone we will 
neuter
 him and get him ready to go.
 Let me know and I understand if you do  not know anyone. This is a hard one.
 Thanks,
 Donna

 Belinda,
 I have a problem. Over the last month I have taken in 4 persians. They all 
 have
 been in rough shape and all found within a 2 block area. Appears a breeder is
 dumping in  this area. Anyway the last one we took in yesterday and he is a 
 very
 tiny male, black and white and has an old broken jaw (one of the others had a
 broken jaw too). Anyway he is a young guy (approx. 8 months old) and skin and
 bones. Took him to the vet yesterday as he looked awful and found out he has
 feline Luek. Did not know if you knew someone that would take a persian with
 leuk. I will hang on to him till tommorow and if you know anyone we will 
 neuter
 him and get him ready to go.
 Let me know and I understand if you do  not know anyone. This is a hard one.
 Thanks,
 Donna

 This is an FELV Persian, in Bella Vista, Arkansas, the northwest part near 
 the 

 Missouri/Arkansas border, toward Kansas, who doesn't have much time - any 
 options?  They say they're willing to transport... Any thoughts or takers?

your so right Reyna,  but if it is the cats time to cross the bridge, it's 
time. 
none of us that deal with this like to see it happen, but we need to learn 
whats 
best for the cat. we spend hrs watching, waiting, trying to help in so many 
different ways, sometimes it works for a short time and other times it does 
not.  It's very hard on the human that does this kind of work,  About 4 months 
ago we here at Second Chance took in a mommy and three kittens( Eva, 
Doom,Mittens, and Tigress),  and it seems that we are losing our Tigress, The 
best we can do is to make her comfortable as we can when the antibiotics didn't 
work on the URI  we knew it was only a matter of time.  She will decide when, 
and we will do everything we can to make it as easy as we  can.

 Hi,
 
 I recently took in a stray cat who had been hanging around my apartment,
 whom I named Eva.  It turned out she was 3 weeks pregnant when I took her
 in.  The vet confirmed the pregnancy at around the 5 week mark, but for
 whatever reason didn't test Eva for FeLV or FIV until I brought her and four
 kittens in when they were 3 weeks old.  She tested positive for FeLV.  Three
 weeks later, all four kittens also tested positive.  They're getting tested
 again in three weeks as there's some chance for kittens to convert from
 positive to negative, but I am less than hopeful at this point.
 
 Due to the illness, the adopters I had lined up have decided not to adopt.
 I am single and live in a 1 BR apartment in Sacramento, CA.  I simply can't
 care for five cats, let alone FeLV+ ones.  Fortunately, a shelter in
 Portland, OR has agreed to help out if needed.  They're called House of
 Dreams and can be found on the web here:
 http://kittydreams.typepad.com/house-of-dreams/.  They have a dedicated area
 for FeLV+ cats and will attempt to adopt them out to caring homes.
 
 That being said, I would like to see if there are any caring homes willing
 to adopt one or more of these cute little guys before I commit them to this
 shelter.  If any of you are within a few hours of Sacramento and would like
 to adopt, or know someone who does, please get in touch.
 
 Here are some pictures:

hi, michael--

sorry to hear about the troubles. i can't do anything before the deadline
here, as i'm on disability, and sort of overstepped my allotment for january
already...

something that you might think about, tho, is asking folks to do a monthly
stipend--we're paying a rent payment of $800/month just that way, with most
folks just sending $5 or $10 a month. even folks like me can manage the $5
amount! (and could do so for you, too.) remember that a lot of folks feel
that the only thing they have to offer is money, because they can't take in
another critter, and they can't do transport or physically have the time to
volunteer at a shelter or event. we always tell them that money is a very
acceptable thing for them to give people want to help, and will if they
can--you're not forcing them to, you're just letting them know that there is
need.

would you mind if i posted the link on the other FeLV list that susan
hoffman and i moderate (FeLVPositiveCats)? i'd mostly let your chip-in page
speak for itself, but mention that both susan and i have worked with your
personally.

let me know!

Re: [Felvtalk] Xana, FelV positive - interferon?

2009-09-29 Thread Second Chance Meows
my suggestion is to do some research on it.  Interferon is used to fight forms 
of cancer, and is considered to be chemo. side effects include:  loss of 
weight, nausea,hair loss, heart issues, pain, chills,temperature, and many 
others.
I  know your talking about low doses of it but anything that is placed into 
these little bodies that has the power to kill not only the bad cells BUT THE 
GOOD ONES TOO  can not be good for them.  their systems are compromised already.
JUST MY OPINION. before you make the decision to give this to the 
cat...look into your own heart and ask is this for the cat..or for yourself??   
will this really improve the quality of its life or just prolong the agony its 
going thru or create more agony,stress for it?

I've been agonizing about giving MeMe Interferon since I've read Michael's post.

I have to honestly say that if she is feeling any side effects they are not 
apparent. We use one day on and one day off
which may be a help. Since she has been on it, her appetite has increased 
dramatically and she has gained 1.5 lbs
which is a lot for a 6 pounder. She seems to have the same level of energy and 
she seems content and craves
attention (which she gets, constantly). She does not have a fever and I don't 
think chills. I would think that if she
were nauseous that her appetite would be affected.

We've managed to bring her back from the brink, and I had thought the 
Interferon (in moderation) was helping her
maintain her gains.

You've caused me to rethink this protocol Michael, although since we have 
gotten her past the three year
hurdle I am reluctant to make changes.

Re: [Felvtalk] Xana, FelV positive - interferon?

2009-09-27 Thread Second Chance Meows
I run a FeLV sanctuary here in the states and have found that the best 
treatment is love and attention.  Having spent almost a year on interferon, I 
know the side effects of it very well, and would not wish them on any living 
being.( human or feline).
spend time with them, show them that you really care about them when no one 
else did.  Let them spend hours in your lap, sleep on the bed, sun in the 
window just  as any other healthy cat would do.

just so you know Esther, my oldest cat here is about 16 and has had FeLV since 
birth, the rest are all about 3-6 yrs old and doing well

Subject: [Felvtalk] Xana, FelV positive - interferon?

I am new to this group. I live in Spain and have some language difficults, so, 
sorry for the faults.

I am an active member of a cat rescue group. In july I found a kitten in the 
street with the eyes seriously dammaged. We went to the vet and all was well, 
excep the positive result to FelV. A friend on mine is fostering her. She seems 
to be healthy and hapy. I want to give her an opportunity to live with good QOL 
as long as possible.

Unfortunately most vets does not share my opinion, and they think it is not 
worth.

I insist... I read all I can find.

I am giving Xana
L-Lysina (for her eye condicion)
Vetinmune (as inmunomodulator)

And I insist to put her on interferon. The vet said that -in that subclinic 
stadium- the alfa (humane) interferon is the election treatment. When symtoms 
appear, then it will be the moment to give the omega interferon...

My questions are:
1) HAVE ANYONE EXPERIENCE IN THE USE OF FELINE OMEGA INTERFERON WITH 
ASYMPTOMATIC CATS??  I know it can not clear the virus, but ... Can it to 
prevent the development of any of the illness related with FelV??

2) About propiobacterium acnes. I cant find it in Spain. The laboratory does 
not produce it anymore, and change it for a new product: Corynebacterium parvum 
(inmufort complex (R). It is used for cows. A colegue (that has a FelV shelter) 
wrote me to advice she is using it in her 8  FelV+ cats... she said is working 
well... her oldest cat is now 8 years old.

3) Xana has also chronic diarrhea, in spite I put her on intestinal diet, does 
no make solid faeces...


Any other non invasive tratment can be usefull???

Thanks for your atention

Hi Sally,
you might be surprised to find out about our small little sanctuary.  we are a 
home based group that uses our house to shelter ONLY FeLV cats. we take no 
others
 currently we have 9 cats here that are all in really great shape.
 I try to keep a limit on how many cats we have and i think that we are going 
to have the ones here for a good bit, but that doesn't stop me from helping 
with others.

Michael Johnson, 

I'm new here but saw your name on this forum and read that
you have an FeLV Sanctuary.  I was wondering for future
reference whether you are full or still have openings for
FeLV fur babies.  I am caring for three with one on Imulan
and one receiving intravenous ascorbic acid weekly for his
lymphosarcoma and I also have more cats than I should
mention that are healthy and do not have the virus.  

Because we are so full and our vet costs so significant
right now, I cannot take in any more FeLV cats that come my
way but we hear of them occasionally.  My husband and I
would gladly try to scrape together the $500  on an
individual cat basis for any FeLV cats that would otherwise
be euthanized if we knew you could take them .  It would be
good to have your contact information for use in the future.


Thanks, and God bless you for what you do for these
unfortunate but very lucky felines.

Hmmm.  Only 10 cats listed for adoption on their petfinder site.  And only one 
of those, an FIV+ boy, is listed as special needs.  

This also makes me suspicious about the long term viability of the place.  You 
have to be committed to finding homes for the cats.  They need human families, 
attention, and they won't get that in a giant sanctuary setting.  And if you're 
not focused on adoptions, you have to strictly limit your intake to avoid 
becoming overwhelmed.

Never heard of them.  

According to their website they've only been around since 2005.  Lots-of-cats 
in a rural setting always makes me nervous.  And, whoa!  They want a $5000 
surrender fee for a healthy cat and $7500 to take in an FIV or FeLV cat.  I 
guess that's one way to make sure you don't wind up with too many animals.

has anyone ever heard of these folks before?

i find it really scary how many sanctuaries keep appearing, with no history
in the FIV/FeLV community.
