Hi all -
My name is Laura and I'm new to this list. I'm also
new to FeLV, since I've just adopted an infected cat.
I work at an animal shelter here in Georgia, and one
of my favorite cats tested positive last week. We had
planned to take him to an adoption fair but had to run
the test first. Well,
Just curious, can other drugs be made into creams to be used in the ear? I have
a 24 pound foster cat with a bad URI, and he had to spend a week at the vet (at
a cost of over $300) because I absolutely could not give him oral meds. Can
this be done with Clavamox or Baytril?

One of my fosters was HORRIBLE for several days after spaying. She was a nice
cat who became very aggressive and basically just stayed in a corner.
Eventually she returned to normal.

One of my fosters (FeLV negative) is an older cat who always had diarrhea
problems, no matter what food I used. Finally I put him on Wellness and he
hasn't had diarrhea since.

I got some bad news at the vet today. I brought Charlotte in for a visit
because she wasn't herself and had been losing weight. She's been with me for
about a year, and, like all my cats, was combo-tested before she was put in
with my other cats. So FeLV was the last thing I was worried about.

Thanks so much, everyone. I feel much, much better knowing that some of you
have been through this and everything has been OK.
I just got home from work and saw that Charlotte had eaten all of her food,
both canned and dry, and she was ready to eat again. So her appetite seems to

Laura, hang in there as long as you can and if they have

Charlotte has an appointment to see Dr. Ray again tomorrow. Her IFA test did
come back positive - so Dr. Ray is not optimistic about the long-term outcome,
especially since she's so young. But we'll see. He mentioned trying Epogen -
anyone have any success with that?
Overall, though, she is
All 15 of my cats came from there, including Charlotte! So if I'm going to
bring anything home I've probably done it already...and we've had outbreaks of

Yes, she is anemic. I'm not sure what her HCT is. She's been on doxy for about
a week now. We don't know if it's Hemobart/Mycoplasma since that's an
additional test, but I'd rather be safe than sorry since I did lose one to
Hemobart last year.

Charlotte returned to the vet today as scheduled. Her PCV is up to 19% versus
9% a week ago. The CBC should be back tomorrow. Both the vet and the vet tech
noticed how much better she looks. She'll be back for a recheck in a couple of

ask the hard questions. The adoption application needs to be revised big time.

Charlotte has just passed away.
I came home from work, went into her room and she was lying on her side, crying
and breathing heavily. I ran and let my dogs out, came back to her and held her

This is what's so strange. I'm not a religious or even a spiritual person, at
all. But after I felt that overwhelming peacefulness - and this is where it
really gets weird - the air in front of me changed. The only way I can describe
it is to say it sort of smoothed over, or glassed over. And
I was wondering if any of you might know why Charlotte was drooling copiously

about when I go to bed at night.
