Has anyone got any ideas on how to get some food into my kitty?
He has had FELV since 03. He was a very sick kitty and we were a breath away
from having to put him to sleep. We wanted to try and give him a chance,
even though our Vet and the Ophthalmologist that was treating
Thank you for getting in touch with me so soon. You are right I have such
a feeling of panic mixed with such heartbreak. Don't seem to be able to
stop filling up with tears. I have had many cats in my time and loved
everyone of them, but this little boy (he is now 5yrs old) came into my
I have Rescue Remedy, I just bought it the other day, would this work? I
was thinking of spraying his carry case with it tomorrow, but it has quite a
floral odour I wondered if it would annoy him.
See if you can find some Feliway spray--not the plug in--and spray it around
where he is and on
Thank you Belinda, I will keep trying, made such a mess out of it with the
syring tonight. Put it in the side of his mouth then accidenally applied to
much pressure and he choked, it was awful I am giving him so mush stress,
it's so heartbreaking.

Well this was my second time trying, we warmed up the food and I decide to
use my finger, It was so awful, we spoke our usual baby talk and I also
warmed up the food a little, you would think we were trying to poison him,
he reacted so badly. His stress level must be going through the roof
rebounds soon, please let us
know how you guys

I've never heard of Nutrical, is it a food supplement? This sounds very
good and quite easy to give, at this point I am willing to try anything.
Thank you so much, I will be picking up a tube tomorrow.

Nina thank you for.
Please try to get a hold of your emotions. I completely understand
about tearing up at just the thought of losing him, I really do get
it. It's easier said than done, but those strong panicky emotions
don't help anyone. Put the energy into resolving to fight for
Dear Michelle what a wonderful poem to your sweet little Tridge. It touches

wantedto see it.
My cat was diagnosed with felv when he was 2 yrs old, he is now 7 1/2. It
was such a shock at the time as I have had so many cats and this was the
first time I had ever heard of felv.
He was put on 5 mg of Prednisone a day and is still going strong and I do

off of it. I've been suppressing his immune system for 2 months now, and I

worry but to get informed. I think my cats sense my worry.I also think I
can invite the very thing I dread if I give it too much attention. Peace,
