so sorry about Bashful.  if only there was a way we could get thru to them that 
we are there to help them, we could do so much more for them.  i know lymphoma 
first hand, had it myself and you are right, that is an awful lot to put anyone 
thru.  even then, it doesn't always work.  my oncologist told me that all 3 
chemos i had did nothing.  i simply went into spontaneous remission 1 year 
after treatments were stopped.  i know prayer had a lot to do with it.  that 
and because God had something else in mind for me.  dorlis

Those who love and care for feral cats have a very difficult calling,  
one that causes great pain when a feral leaves for any reason.   
However, when a feral cares about you, it is the most rewarding  
experience because that caring can not be forced nor is it bred into  
the cat.  Bless you and your friends for caring about these wonderful  
animals.  You did the right thing.  The fear and anger would have made  
Bashful's time unbearable for her.

Thank you Diane  M.C., your thoughts are so much appreciatedI hate not
trying which is why we did all the diagnostics, but all involved felt that
she would not have peace enduring chemo, especially given all aspects of
her  condition, temprament, and of course that not only was there the known
stresses of chemo  frequent appts, injections, but that unexpected things
might come up as well depending on how she tolerated it.

Thank you for helping us ensure that Bashful is not forgotten...these
geriatric feral cats are very special to us, their strength  perseverance
is honorable...not to mention the light and love they add to our daily work.

 unhappy even being at the vet, it was clear this was not going to be a
 way
 to give her quality time and that she was already in a very bad state.

 One of my good campus friends who came to the call to help drop trap is
 leaving now to be with Bashful for her final moments.   Bashful was not
 FELV+ (likely was FIV+), but I know many here can sympathize with the
 dreadful diagnosis of lymphoma.

 We treat feral cats for illnesses as much as we possibly can, I've
 actually
 got 14 campus feral kitty Bobbye on my porch now for that reason (CRF,
 FIV+,
 along with Toxoplasmosis  possible eye tumor which has not
 progressed--she's done well other than not liking the fluids of
 course)but it just didn't seem there were any way we could put
 Bashful
 through chemo, weekly vet visits, and possibly never feeling good enough
 for
 the time to have been of quality for her.   She is very stressed at my
 vet
 and we hope things go as peacefully as possible this afternoon.

 Go with love, sweet Bashful, and know how badly we wanted to help
 you--you
 will not be forgotten.

Bashful is of course so fortunate to have you all - what a great  
group.  May she float to the bridge on gossamer wings, with all our  
sweet ones.

How wonderful of all of you to be there with Bashful all this time and right
up to the end.  That alone will mean so much to her--a familiar face helping
her to be at peace and pain free. Having lost my Romeo to Lymphoma earlier
this year, I know how quick and devastating it is.  Bravo to all of you for
loving this little one that much!

Thank you Heather for your story of Bashful.She no longer has to suffer and has 
many wonderful fur babies to play with now.
