Hi All, Here is an award handed out by a local judge in Seattle, even if you don't live here please vote. There's a poll on the page -- take a sec and vote so it's clear to readers that plenty of us think that a cat's life is worth at least this much.

the other option is to just get an rv and take the cats WITH you -- that's the only option I would consider :) Hubby goes to vegas every year for 3 or 4 days, I stay home with the cats. -- Belinda Happiness is being owned by cats ... Be-Mi-Kitties ... http://www.bemikitties.com Post Adoptable

I guess just try to be as gentle as possible and try syringing some food into her. Is she on antibiotics for the URI because many antibiotics will also make them loss their appetite? Bailey on on antibiotics for about a week I think to make sure he didn't get any kind of infection.

Don't lose hope, I'll tell you a story about Frankie, he was positive and had such a bad URI he was sick for over a week before I took him in for antibiotics. This was many years ago before I knew nearly as much as I do now, and in fact we didn't find out he was positive until this episode,

Hemobartenella and bartonella are two different things. bartenella is associated with stomastisis, hemobartenella is associated with anemia. Bailey was (and probably still is) positive for bartonella associated with stomastisis, he was on three different antibiotics (for over 5 months) and

Hi Michelle, You may want to syringe her a bit more, an adult cat needs between 5.5 and 6.0 ounces of food to maintain their body weight, although tiny cats like my Shelbee don't eat anywhere near that much (Shelbee weights about 7 pounds). You may want to stick with the 100ccs of food,

It does sound like he is fighting off an infection of some kind. I would keep a close eye on his PCV [(Hematocrit) was 26% (Normal = 24 - 45% at their lab)], with FeLV positives you really want them on the higher end of normal. Make sure that the clavamox doesn't put him off his food. Was

Marlene, Just so you know many cats will actually be positive for hemo and test negative, it's tricky to test for, so many vets will give them the med for it anyway, it can't hurt and may save his life. I think the doxocycline (sp?) is what's used for it. How many positive cats has your
