Hi Tad, Your posts are coming through, I think most people are just gone for the holiday. I personally think your idea is a good one. Although, you can forcefeed, I think these cats have been through so much already that I probably would let them go if they weren't eating. tonyaTad Burnett

Hi Tonya Mt thought exactly...With all the stress of being moved and a 1500 mile transport ahead of them... I don't know what kind of care they are getting now but its been a couple days already and FeLV+'s won't fight off the virus long if they aren't eating now And if they are eating

I suppose the bottom line...Do any of these cats have sponsers that would want to help with expenses should be a consideration and on the other hand its probably just as easy to transport 4 or 6 as it is to transport only 1 Tad Tad Burnett wrote: Hi Jenn Just got home from a big

I think it was Mary that said to talk to them and ask them if they want to live... I think a cats natural instinct is to stop eating when its time to go... Thus this would be a good test too...If they eat and drink well thats a good sign... A/D or A/D with a little tomato juice (same as liver
