Dana, Macey is not on AZT... The only supplement she is on now is L-Lysine. I also adopted another FeLv+ kitten who is 2 months older than Macey, kinda as a big brother and playmate for her. Right now, both stay in my office, behind closed doors, as I have many other cats who are not

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

We came back from vacation last night, having left a sick cat in our pet sitter's care - he has had some brain lesions, nothing to be done. Her was still eating, getting vitamin injections from the vet, some steroids, etc. Binkey held on until we came back. I consulted with my animal

I am so sorry about Buddy! If you really want to talk to him, have you considered contacting a really good animal communicator? I have been in contact with Binkey last week, who had to be euthanized this morning, and in a few days, will have my AC contact him. Binkey was a silver colored,

So sorry abut Buddy. It hurts, but soon you will have another to fill the void. That is always the way it works for me. I have gone thru this over 10 times and the hurt lasts for a long time, but when another comes to you for help and love it helps o ease the sorrow and pain. GRAS
