Hi, can you tell me more about the salve and tonic. My FELV- cat Venture
just had his foreleg amputated yesterday due to a fast growing tumor
(biopsy pending). He has stage 2 CRF. Thanks.

For rabies, if you can't get a waiver, insist on the purevax brand which

likely to cause cancer etc.

It's a very interesting article/study. I think they are not advocating

In my opinion, this cat has to get to the vet, even if only for
euthanasia. It would be great to do exam/bloodwork first though, if
finances allow -- just in case it's easily treatable.

re-donated to feral feeders who agree to participate in TNR.
