Re: [Felvtalk] [FeLVPositiveCats] A Place For Us

2011-11-28 Thread Wolf, Leah R.
  

This was just what I needed today.  My beloved Buddy, a felv+ Maine Coon
whom I adopted nearly 6 years ago, died this morning.  He was about 9 years
old, maybe more.  He had been abandoned at a shelter as a young cat and I
adopted him to be a companion to my other positive cat.  I am grateful that
the end came quickly and quietly, but I am heartbroken.  He was the best cat
ever.  He came running when I called him, he slept every night In my bed and
snuggled on my lap like a giant beanie baby, he got along patiently with the
other cats we have taken in. He had no meow, just a croak, but had the
most eloquent eyes.  Many times I wished he could talk.  I know that a piece
of him will be with me until we meet again.

Hi All,

 

Just wondering if anyone knew of sanctuaries that will take special needs
kitties. My poor Ashley (foster kitty) still has diarrhea, and they suspect
she has feline odontoclastic resorptive lesions (FORLs). I want to find a
good home for her, but right now I'm not able to find anyone around here
who'll take on a special needs kitty. I just want her to get as much
attention as she deserves. 

 

She's not FeLV (tested twice), and she seems healthy otherwise.

 

I don't mind taking care of her, but we have 5 kitties in the house (2 that
need homes), and now we're expecting (me, not any kitties). I'm not sure how
we'll all fit into the house down the road. There's constant wrestling and
fighting all night long (play fighting), and I just need to alleviate a
little stress. I love our two foster babies, but I know we can't handle 5
forever (financially or emotionally) until we have a bigger home and more $!

RE: ot - Ever ubiquitous pee

2007-05-21 Thread Wolf, Leah R.
Many years ago our cat peed in my son's basket of fresh laundry just before
we left for vacation.  We didn't realize what had happened until we were on
the plane and I became aware of a powerful odor on Andrew's person, which
turned out to be the clothes he had retrieved from the basket and was
wearing.  We had to change planes, so we made a beeline for a gift shop in
search of clean clothes to wear for the rest of the flight.  As soon as we
checked into the hotel at our destination, I bagged up everything in his
suitcase and took it to the front desk to be laundered.

Hey guys,

Why is it that even a year and a half after Cricket's passing, I can burst
into tears after having flashbacks of the night he died?  To a logical
person (being me), it sounds ridiculous and overdramatic. 
But the fact remains that when I allow myself to remember what happened with
Cricket the night he died, and how horrible it was, it sends me straight
into meltdown.  I am at work for heaven's sake.  Usually, when I think about
Cricket, I don't think about that one day in his life.  But it seems so
unfair that he couldn't have a more peaceful death.  I will never forget his
suffering, even knowing that he is now at rest.  Why do some
people's/animal's last days of their lives have to be filled with pain and
suffering?
 I just don't understand it.  I think maybe all the recent losses, and sadly
there have been many, might be bringing my memories back, but maybe that's a
good thing?  Maybe we never really fully stop grieving, but every little
meltdown we have allows us to heal a little more.  

Thanks for letting me ramble about my lack of understanding of the meaning
of life.

RE: Rude Ranch -WARNING

2007-02-05 Thread Wolf, Leah R.
It is my understanding that Bob and Kathy were living in and had as a
shelter a few years ago a much smaller place than the very large house they
have now.  I had no problem making an appointment at our mutual convenience
when I went to adopt a cat this past December.  It looked very clean and the
very many cats I saw looked well-cared for and content.  The various
climbers seemed well-contructed, just like you would see in a catalog.
There is no question that Rude Ranch is a shelter and not a home and I
believe that Bob and Kathy work hard to place the cats that come to them.
 
My two cents.

Yes, Rude Ranch does LOOK like a great place...BUT: 
 
I attempted to place a cat at Rude Ranch a few years back, committing to the
monthly support fee needed to surrender.  My first choice for the felv +
stray I had rescued was an actual home, not an institution, so when a woman
called and offered to give this cat a HOME, I jumped at the chance without
visiting her place first (she came highly recommended by various rescues..),
so I turned the spot that they had made room for down to place with this
individual instead.  
 
When I got to her place, she, while very well intentioned, was an animal
horder.  She agreed to take fosters in from various organizations, (Grey
Hound Rescue...Rude Ranch...etc..), where she cared for them on her farm,
with her husband, without any monetary support from these rescues that
depended on her (so she said).  
 
The garage where she was housing her felv+ cats (she had she had said at the
time 5-by the time I got mine there, there were 10) was an absolutely
FILTHY...dirt and hair everywhere...exposed insulation  beamwork, food
bowls that looked as if they hadn't been washed in months...urine soaked
everything..the smell was beyond deplorableand it was the dead of
WINTER.  The great levels the cats had to climb on were rusty metal
shelving.  The floor was covered in plywood and while there were 3 space
heaters in the garage, and it did have garage door windows...but it was
aweful.  As I told her I had turned down Rude Ranch even tho they had just
made a space for (Simms) she interrupted...Oh, that must be why I got this
one from them the other day (pointing to a white persuain laying on a ratty
blanket on one of the rusty shelves).  
 
I had asked her if she received financial help for the cats they dumped on
her, she didn't...and was a bit ticked to learn that they charge monthly for
careI wonder if they are still charging for the ones they've brought
me...or perhaps that's why I have them now, their people stopped paying???
 
I don't have intimate knowledge of the workings or Rude Ranch...but,,,the
fact that if you are coming to visit they insist that you phone and schedule
your visit a week before-hand (what they told me when I was considering
using them for Simms) makes me wonder if they have to FIND the cat you
surrendered before you come back to visit )  
 
I've had TOO many bad run-ins with WONDERFUL organizations to believe
everything I see on tv or read in the paper. I'm sure they are all trying
their best, but
 
Rude Ranch may be wonderful...but I have to honestly wonder.
 
fyi:  I eventually placed Simms with another person in a REAL home
environment.. .  And don't get me wrong about her...she was/is trying her
best...but dear God..you've GOT to know when to say when...Neither her or
her husband could tell me how many cats and dogs they had housed on the
property...prop. just over a hundred.  I have to wonder at rescue
organizations that over-burdened themselves, are over-burdening other
volunteersto make themselves look good?

Dear Anne,
 
My heart goes out to you.  You did the right thing.  When you know that your
baby is suffering past the point of enjoying life anymore, it is time to let

Dear kind fellow cat lovers,
Jimi Too Cool has passed over to the other side with the help of his
favorite vet, Dr. Greene, at 11:30AM today.  Things went pretty smoothly and
Dr. Greene was very kind and sympathetic.  
 
Jimi had suffered from the side effects of feline leukemia for half of
his 10 year lifetime.  It started with painful stomatitis and travelled down
the esophagus and beyond, making it very difficult for him to eat.  In the
last several months, he has gone downhill, becoming skin and bones,
practically, even though he could eat well and a lot when his steroid shots
kicked in.  This last weekend, he became like the walking dead and cried out
pitifully now and then.  His eyes looked tired and sad and glazed.  The
tramadol that was added to his meds wasn't helping anymore, either, it
seemed.  
 
I have been blessed to have my boy for so long, especially in light of
his disease, so for that I am very grateful.  He was a noble, silly,
friendly, brave, loving, smart, quirky and beautiful boy.  He has my heart.
He was very much a COOL boy all his life, too, from the time I scooped him
up from an ATM machine location on a busy, dangerous street, up to and
including his death.  At our first meeting at the bank, he just sauntered
over and sat beside me calmly and resolutely and happily, making it known he
was not leaving my side and that was how it stayed.  
 
Jimi liked to headbutt us often and with force.  He also liked to hang
upside down like a bat and he also did his camel imitation for our
entertainment, making his back hump greatly, as he was a tall and solid boy
with long lanky legs.  He was also somewhat like a dog, following us on our
heels often.
 
Phaewry and Marylyn, thank you for your recent posts concerning Jimi.  I
want to answer them when I feel a bit stronger.  Tamara, thank you, dear
friend.  Love and hugs to you, too, as always. 
 
I wanted to send the following poem along with this message because it
reminded me so much of my boy, Jimi Too Cool, and helped me get through the
euthanasia.
Anne and Simms and Sophie and Jimi Too Cool, in spirit in my heart always
 
A Parting Prayer
 
Dear Lord, please open your gates
and call St. Francis
to come escort this beloved companion
across the Rainbow Bridge.
 
Assign him to a place of honor,
for he has been a faithful friend
and has always done his best to please me.
 
Bless the hands that send him to you,
for they are doing so in love and compassion,
freeing him from pain and suffering.
 
Grant me the strength not to dwell on my loss.
Help me remember the details of his life
with the love he has shown me.
And grant me the courage to honor him
by sharing those memories with others.
 
Let him remember me as well
and let him know that I will always love him.
And when it's my time to pass over into your paradise,
please allow him to accompany those
who will bring me home.
 
Thank you, Lord,
for the gift of his companionship
and for the time we've had together.
 
And thank you, Lord,
for granting me the strength
to give him to you now.

Re: Jimi Too Cool problem

2006-12-16 Thread Wolf, Leah R.
Dear Anne,

My heart goes out to you, since it was just 8 days ago since I lost my Bubba.

He, too, sought out hiding places shortly before he died.  I think that Jimi is 
trying to find a place to be alone more than anything else.  When Bubba finally 
became too weak to move around the apartment, I kept him right next to me so I 
could hold him and stroke him and talk to him.  That meant a lot to me and I 
think that it meant a lot to him, too, because even though I think he was in a 
coma at the end, his tail would switch and he would purr when I talked to him 
and stroked him.

  Hi everyone,
 My Jimi Too Cool, 10 year old black domestic shorthair with feline 
leukemia, is in his last stage of life, I am sure.  He has been slowly going 
downhill.  He is just bones with fur and won't eat.  His pain is controlled 
with depo-medrol and tramadol and he is not in distress, pain is under control, 
but he mostly just sleeps a lot.  Well, tonight he made a break for it and went 
outside and won't come in and it is at freezing temp now.  32 degrees, I 
believe.  No wind, though.  I have cat-fence-in so he is not straying but I 
can't reach him.  Every time I go out to try and bring him in, he runs for 
cover under the deck.  

 Have any of you run into this problem?  I have heard that cats and dogs 
like to go outside to die.  Could that be it, I wonder?  I am so worried about 
him as he is so skinny and he is not used to this cold weather.  He can come 
in, though, if he would like, as I put the cat door back into the window, just 
for him, although I had it stowed for the cold weather until spring.  I am 
trying to relax because I know he could come in if he wanted to so he must not 
mind it outside.  Sigh

 Thanks, everyone.

one point she had bad diarrhea and when I switched her on Innova she was 
better. The only thing is that her poop stinks very bad; wakes us in the 
night every time she uses the litter box. Doyou guys experience the 
same thing with your cats? The other two that I have and that are negative 
are fine; the usual smell. Lola's poop now is half diarrhea half OK, and 
the smell is getting worse. Sorry for all this "smelly" info, but I was 
curious if it's just her or it is something characteristic FeLV positive

Loss of Appetite

Dear 
Friends,

My 
5-year old Bubba was sick recently; the vet could not figure out what caused the 
fever and no other symptoms except occasional sneezing. Anyway, Bubba lost 
5 of his 15 pounds because his appetite fell off.

I am 
trying to fatten him back up because 10 pounds is not a healthy weight for 
him. He eats vigorously when he is especially hungry, such as first thing 
in the morning, but he has to be encouraged to eat later in the day. I 
have been giving him Nutri-Cal and hand-feeding him "cat pate" but I'd really 
like to know what can be done to stimulate his appetite 
again.

Many

Hi again everyone! I keep coming up with more questions...thanks for 
your patience!!!

I live in an apartment in a suburb of Washington, DC. I woke up this 
morning and realized that the exterminator was supposed to come today (he comes 
the first Wed. of every month). I couldn't get ahold of the office to find 
out if Slinky would be safe or not, so I left a note for them to call me before 
they did anything.

They did call and the exterminator says the chemicals they use aren't 
harmful to any animals (there are others in the complext with cats and they're 
fine). They're treating for roaches. I did have a roach problem 
shortly after I moved in, but I haven't had any problems for a while. I 
told them Slinky had a suppressed immune system and they still said it would be 
fine. But I asked them to skip my apartment at least for this month.

So...for future reference...do you think the insecticides they use really 
are okay for him? If I end up developing a roach problem, should I let 
them go ahead and spray? Or should I find a place for Slink to go for the 
day that day? Could the roaches be harmful to him if they become a problem 
(I know they carry diseases, etc.)?

Since they do this monthly, I want to know how to handle it in the 
future. I almost asked if I could bring Slink to my office today, but 
wasn't sure how well that would be received. Plus it might be stressful 
for him!

So what are your thoughts? Any experience with this? THANKS SO 
MUCH!!!

Re: Adoptions (was OT: heartbroken)

I adopted my Felv+ Bubba from the Friends of Montgomery County Animals via 
PetsMart.  I discovered him and FMCA at a Cat Fanciers cat show in DC, where 
they had an exhibit of several of their rescued cats and a picture of Bubba.  
(I have a soft spot in my heart for these positive cats since one of our 
sweetest yellow tabbies, a stray whom we rescued, died of the disease at about 
one year of age.)  I was a goner when I saw the photo of this beautiful big 
gray tabby.  After exchanging phone calls and e-mails with the woman who was 
fostering him, we arranged that she would bring him to the PetsMart in 
Germantown with her next group of cats needing homes.  So that is where we 
actually met and adopted him, but we had not gone to the store cold looking 
for a cat.  In fact, we weren't looking to adopt a cat at all when we went to 
the cat show; I think that God wanted me to take my son to this cat show 
specifically to bring Bubba to us.

This was two years ago now.  He is a fabulous cat, as healthy as anyone could 
want.

We have adopted two more of these special cats since, both from rescue groups.  
Mikey was a very sick kitten and died within a year.  We adopted Buddy 
(originally named King Tut by the rescue group), a black and white Maine Coon 
three months ago.  He also is healthy and gets along very well with Bubba.

  I don't do caged petstore adoptions.  The cats do not show well unnder 
those conditions and it just isn't an efficient use of time.  Here's what I do:

  1.  Craigslist.org -- Everyone -- kittens, seniors, special needs -- gets 
listed on craigslist.  There are craigslist boards across the country.  Some 
are more active than others.  I'm in the San Francisco area with a very active 
craigslist and I do most of my adoptions through craigslist.  (Also recruit 
foster homes via craigslist.)  Listing is free.  Take great photos.

  2.  Pennysaver and other newspapers -- I'm looking at the Pennysaver 
newspaper for cats in foster homes in the Sacramento area.  That craigslist is 
less active.  A friend in the Los Angeles area has great success with adoptions 
via the Pennysaver so I'm thinking about using it in Sacramento too.

  3.  Network -- This is especially helpful with harder-to-place cats.  (a) 
 A friend who works at a medical university is posting my epileptic kitten 
there for adoption.  I figure the right home for Connie will be someone who is 
epileptic or who has an epileptic family member or perhaps has had a dog that 
is of a breed prone to epilepsy.  It will be someone who understands how easily 
controllable this is.  (b) This same friend has an FIV+ foster cat and we are

same offer that He made the cat. The mice said, "All our lives we've had to run. 
Cats, dogs and even women with brooms have chased us. If we could only have a 
pair of roller skates, we wouldn't have to run anymore."God says, "Say 
no more." And instantly, each mouse is fitted with a beautiful pair of tiny 
roller skates.About a week later, God decides to check and see how the 
cat is doing. The cat is sound asleep on his new pillow. God gently wakes him 
and asks, "How are you doing? Are you happy here?" The cat yawns and 
stretches and says, "Oh, I've never been happier in my life. And those Meals on 
Wheels you've been sending over are the best!"

I have a story for you guys.  This morning I was up at 5:30 am supervising my 
nephew while he finished his math homework.  My black cat, Pepper, jumped up on 
the
bay window seat in the dining area and started pawing at the south window.  I 
went over to her and wrapped my arms around her and started telling her how 
cute she was.  I didn't bother to look out the window.  Pepper usually does 
that on a lower window if she sees another cat, but this time, the window was 
up high.  The next thing I know, my husband walked in and said Were you just 
outside?  and I said no, why?.  He said, Are you sure you weren't just 
outside? and I said no.  He said that someone was sneaking past the bathroom 
window, which is frosted, towards the dining area windows.  He thought it was 
me playing a trick on him, so he tapped on the window, and whoever it was, ran 
off.  That's when he came to see if it was me.  We live in a quiet 
neighborhood, but my neighbor down the street said that he's had to replace PVC 
pipe for his sprinkler system twice in the past week because someone was 
stepping on it and crushed it.  The pipe is right in front of his daughter's 
window and when he repaired it the second time, he noticed that there was a 
crack in her blinds where someone could see in.  So I guess we have a pervert 
hanging around, or living in, our neighborhood unfortunately.  But I thought it 
was really cool that Pepper tried to tell me the way she did.  Talk about 
animal communication!  Cats are so awesome!

Very good idea to alert all the neighbors; if the individual is prowling the 
neighborhood frequently, he will eventually be caught since people will be 
looking for him.

over, but there's not much they can do.  My husband wanted to go out and catch 
the guy but I told him if the guy had a gun, that wouldn't be too smart.  The 
police came out twice for my neighbor too, but said the same thing.  I am going 
to notify all my neighbors this afternoon to be on the lookout.

RE: Need prayers and advice for Ginger

2005-05-06 Thread Wolf, Leah R.
Dear Michelle,

Having just lost my Mikey, my heart goes out to you.

My vet mentioned that one of the things that can happen with our positive 
children is that small tumors can form in the esophagus, making it impossible 
for the cat to eat.

Has your vet looked into this possibility?

Subject: Need prayers and advice for Ginger


Ginger, my 6 year old positive, did not seem to want to eat last night and this 
morning at 6 am licked her lips when I gave her baby food and only ate a few 
licks-- she would normally go crazy for it.  I took her in to the emergency 
room. Her blood work was all normal except her protein was a little high.  Her 
xrays were normal except there was a little something showing where the lymph 
node in the chest is. The radiologist said it is either fat, which frequently 
collects there and Ginger is fat, or the beginnings of an enlarged lymph node 
there which could indicate lymphoma.  Her gums are super-inflamed and her teeth 
in terrible shape.  They gave me antibiotics for her mouth, gave her Pepcid 
before we left, and said to give her fluids. They chipped some of the stuff off 
her teeth. She was very stressed while there.

Upon coming home she ate a jar of baby food.  My cat Lucy then started 
viciously attacking her-- which she has never done, and Ginger has been hiding 
from her.  I gave her a vial of feline interferon for the first time, have an 
ultrasound scheduled for Monday if she does not get better, and am praying. I 
tried to give her fluids and she turned into a wildebeast-- I have given many 
cats fluids in my life, and Gray was helping, and we could not get more than 10 
ml or so into her.  I tried giving her more food, including more baby food, and 
she would not eat it. Actually, she tried a few licks of baby food and then 
started moving her mouth and throat funny like it was stuck in her mouth or 
throat, which of course is impossible with baby food, and then she walked away. 
 She played with me a little, but is not herself at all.  She does not have 
diarrhea. She is a little dehydrated, which I guess I will try to fix by 
getting more baby food in her since I can not get fluids into her.

If anyone thinks this sounds familiar and has any idea what is going on, please 
tell me.  I hope it is not lymphoma, and to tell the truth it seems odd to me 
that beginning stages of lymphoma in the chest would make her not want to eat.  
Please send prayers and energy.

Thanks,
Michelle




Mikey

2005-05-04 Thread Wolf, Leah R.
Dear Everybody,

This is to let you know that Mikey has joined his brothers in cat heaven.  He 
did not respond to Monday's treatments, so the vet gave him a substantial 
amount of fluid yesterday evening, which revived him and I became hopeful that 
the dehydration was his only problem.  However, the revival did not last and he 
died in the early hours of this morning.  The vet has determined that, based on 
the array of symptoms, Mikey had an underlying liver problem and most likely a 
variety of organic issues resulting from that.  So the real problem was not the 
dehydration and lack of interest in eating.  These were results of the liver 
problem.

Belinda, please add Mikey to next week's Candlelight Service.

Many thanks to all who contributed healing messages and specific suggestions 
for caring for an FELV+ cat.

We still have Bubba, our 4 year old boy, who is going strong, to console us.


Leah

Thank you, Kerry - you know me with the spelling - yes I meant Sulphur- 
Sulphur is such an amazing remedy - I can't begin to express how grateful I am 
to this remedy - anyway, when the fever is caused by some type of virus and 
caused by the compromised immune system, and can't get rid of the fever, this 
remedy has worked really well for many of my cats - different books may suggest 
different things - I do read them, but this is something that I was directly 
recommended by my holistic vet who
saved many of my cats lives - Sulphur and Silicia, and Pulstilla are something 
that I always make sure to have enough of them since they are very 
multi-dimensional as a treatment -

Hi, Leah,
Try to use the remedy called Pustilla - When my ginger (FeLV+) had a fever, 
this worked like a miracle and also some others - If the fever just started, 
you might want to try aconite first, but if the ever is there more than a few 
days, aconite might not be the right remedy - 

You can get it at a health store - I usually put a several pallet in the 
syringe and water, and dissolve it first, and then put it in her/his mouth.

If Pustilla does not work - you also may want to try surphur - 

Do you have an easy access to these remedies? If not, let me know. I can ship 
you for you if you just give me an address.

Mikey is not on any drugs, has had the loss of appetite for at least a week,

affectionate cat.  He prefers companionship, rather than being alone.  

For what it's worth, he is about a year and a half old.

RE: CLS - Monday May 2, 2005

2005-05-02 Thread Wolf, Leah R.
Thanks to those who sent healing messages.

The vet gave Mikey a thorough physical examination and stool check and found 
nothing organically wrong with him.  He told me that it is typical of the 
positive condition for a cat to run a high fever from time to time, on the 
order of a roller coaster effect.  The lack of appetite and energy are direct 
results.  He gave him shots of Flocillin and Dypivone, along with Clovamax 
drops for me to administer for the next 7 days.   He directed me to call him in 
24 to 36 hours to let him know how Mikey is doing.

I am glad that I didn't wait any longer to take him to the vet since he was 
beginning to become dehydrated and had lost a pound and a half in the past two 
weeks, which is a lot for a nine pound cat.
