Think I goofed, lots of noise and my message got wiped out. Here goes again. I have only given fluids once, to Lil Bit who was 10 years old and down in weight. she was dehydrated so vet gave me fluids and needle to use. It was an 18 g and looked awfully big to me for such a small cat

I don't remember offhand, it was over a year ago, but I think I may have gotten the link from the files at the FCRF yahoo group they have to give fluids all the time so some good advice and links on there. you can google it and check prices, you may need a script for the fluids as they want to

Hello Everyone,      It's been about 3 weeks now and still trying to clean up a very bad mistake. Here's my story! I have a beautiful male Bengal Cat name Buddy Buck who is registered and I have papers and pedigree back 8 generations. I want to breed him and just have had no luck finding a cat

Well, I don't know about the scam but about the cat; if you don't want her you could call a rescue. What type of test did they do? I'd test with IFA tho the in house is accurate for FeLV, or can be. I can't relate much to the situation you are decribing b/c I live in Nebraska where temperatures

I'm sorry, cannot relate to your problem because I am a rescue and oppose breeding, for obvious reasons. I feel really bad for the poor cat that is not wanted for anything except breeding (but that's my personal view). However, I would suggest that you contact a breed rescue or a group that takes

This is for Charles Adams: Unfortunately, you are beginning to learn by your mistake that breeding animals, whether cats, dogs, birds or any other species can be more costly than it's worth.  You state that you don't want a pet cat and never did. I am assuming that the Bengal you have is just

Charles, I think you should follow the advice of the other posters -- get her retested, get her spayed and find her a home where she's wanted. If she is truly FeLV+, then find her a FeLV+ friendly shelter or adopter. It's in the best interests of the cat. It would also be in the best

Charles, Please heed the thoughtful advice shared by others on this list and have your Bengals spayed and neutered before placing them in homes where they’re cherished. I do rescue and have two retired breeding Bengals. One took two years before she adjusted to life in a home. Sadly, the other

Charles many of the people here do rescue rescuers don't really have sympathy for breeders. We spend our lives telling peple to spay neuter their animals. We watch as animals are constantly destroyed because people don't listen to us. If this cat retests positive I'd be happy to take her into
