Oh, Sarai, I am so sorry. What a terrible experience for all of you. I'm glad you stuck with her all the way and were able to do the kind thing when it was time. Gentle Bridge vibes to little Bella. I like to think that when they go so young they get another chance, and I hope she finds you

I have two that have tested positive but are asymptomatic. They are both around 3-4 years old. Both big and fat. HoweverI have been through this before and know it could change at any time. I'm not doing anything special, just keeping them on a good diet and keeping a close eye on them. So

Sarai, I'm so sorry about Bella. I only ever had one leuk pos kitty that seemed to have neurological symptoms. She lost the use of her back legs and it was very difficult to watch. Bella is so lucky to have found you. I've had probably 15 or so leuk positives (have four now) and every one

Sarai, I was saddened to read that Bella has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. I know how heart breaking it is to lose a little one. Like others that have responded, I feed mine the best food they will eat, love them, and keep stress to a minimum. So far I have rescued 6 positive kitties. All
