Kelley, do you have any personal friends whom you might call on for a big favor? Are there any FeLV groups that could be called on, not necessarily in Austin, but in the area? It's such a shame, because this cat may just have had a false positive... From: felvtalk-boun...@felineleukemia.org

I can't even get anyone to hold on to a healthy kitten temporarily - all my favors are called in long ago, and I've even having problems placing barn cats. . We could start treatment, but this lady gets more attached to this cat by the day and it really is not fair to her (or the cat) to put him

I am not putting down sanctuaries or your sanctuary. I know Crash's Landing and you, among others, do wonderful work. This particular person brings in tens of thousands of dollars in donations and she does it, in MY opinion, in an underhanded way. This is a person who has done very bad things

Could you take him in temporarily, just until a home is found for him? He could stay in a cage i you are worried about your cats although, if they are all up to date on shots, they should be safe. Kelley Saveika moonv...@gmail.com wrote: I can't even get anyone to hold on to a healthy
