I'd agree with spaying the FELV kitty, and that's what I've done. I took in a little 8 month old FELV kitty who was pregnant, and my choice was to have her spayed. She came thru it with flying colors. I give my FELV kitties daily interferon, to boost the immune system. Gloria On Dec 15,

My first FELV cat was calico - Calawalla Banana Booboo, a real darling. However, I now have several FELV cats and FIV cats. None are calico. If there's any predominance in color, it's black. My friend Susan has several FELV and FIV, and I don't recall seeing a calico. FYI - Gloria

Thanks for the link, might be helpful in educating people. I think the declawing should be outlawed too. We really don't get that many people who ask for declawed cats in Arkansas, but there are some and we always screen for that. Gloria On Jan 2, 2006, at 6:58 AM, janine paton wrote:
