Do you have a reliable friend nearby who could do meds while you are at work? I know it sounds crazy, but when Shallie's kittens were only days old, my boss let me bring them and keep their basket under my desk so I could give them a bottle when they were hungry. I was fortunate that he was

Randy I am SO happy to hear that Curly had a very positive response to Mirtazapine albeit FAR in excess of anything I saw with my Yogi.  Nothing makes us happier here than to hear positive stories about FeLV kitties responding positively to treatment.. I feel happy for the
