   of the people living there put food out.  Occasionally a cat is

  His
   ears were not notched and he has no microchip.
  
   Storm has not shown any aggression at all.  He is fed separately, but
 the
   other cats don't bother him.  He is not feral.  I was asked if I would
   take
   him home with me when I visited in October.  I took him to the local

 have a

   While the rest of the colony will survive the winter, it is doubtful

 November.

Take him and love him.  He was sent to you for love and care.  Every time I 
have lost one furry soul, anoher one came to me.  I have 7 now and would not 
part with any of them, the love and company they give me is priceless and they 
give me a reason to get up in the morning.  They will walk all over me, Meow, 
pull my hair and sometimes I wih they would just leave me alone, but that is 
just what I do not need.  I need to get up and deal with life, not hide  from 
it.

I mix my FELV's with my non-FELV's - have had no problem. Several on  
this list do.  Also I have a friend who has 1 FELV and 1 non-FELV -  
she gives the FELV kitty oral interferon alpha, which is well known on

I have to vaccinate for FelV too, and I simply hate to do it. However,
I recently discovered that two of the cats in the shelter/sanctuary
building I own are FelV pos.  They have mixed with all the other cats
there for years and none have had FelV vaccinations. Currently they
are all healthy.  These are not my 15 cats at home. They are all
FelV neg and are never with my sanctuary cats.

Anyway, I'd also like to know which of the FelV vaccinations are the
best and least likely to cause VAS.

but I'll certainly find out. I'll get back to you as soon as I have an answer.

Re: [Felvtalk] FeLV+ Cat - Chincoteague Island - URGENT-Transportation Available

2011-11-19 Thread Cindy McHugh
Oh no. I'm so incredibly sorry to hear that. I pray you find comfort in knowing 
that Tigger is in a wonderful place, where he knows only perfect health and 
happiness. And when you consider that you'll have eternity together, this 
separation is but a speck of time. Try to remember that he's not gone, just 
gone ahead.

Nov 17 marked my last dog's first birthday in Heaven. It's been a year and not 
a day goes by that I don't think of him fondly and miss him dearly. 
Unfortunately, it's the price we pay for surrounding ourselves with these 
marvelous wonders whose life spans are shorter than our own. 

I pray for comfort and healing for you. And bless you for considering opening 
your broken heart to another in need.

Kindest Regards,
Cindy

John, I know that Tigger would want you to have your heart open to a cat in
need (Storm).
You have the support of a great fellowship of cat lovers.
Over the past 2 years I have lost 3 cats to old age/disease and I
immediately found 3 loving cats that needed a home.
Nothing will replace Tigger, but every new cat brings so much joy.
Good luck with all things feline.

Re: [Felvtalk] FeLV+ Cat - Chincoteague Island - URGENT-Transportation Available

2011-11-19 Thread Cindy McHugh
The woman trying to help the cat on Chincoteague Island sent me some additional 
information, so I thought I'd share it here. 

He only has 11 days to find a home, foster, or rescue. Please feel free to 
crosspost.

Thanks,
Cindy

Here's the info she sent:

There is a resident population of feral cats at Tom's Cove Campground.  Some of 
the people living there put food out.  Occasionally a cat is trapped and taken 
to 
an area vet.  Storm showed up after Hurricane Irene.  He was trapped and taken 
to the vet to get shaved down because he was badly matted and infested with 
fleas.  At the vet's it was discovered he was already neutered.  His ears were 
not notched and he has no microchip.

Storm has not shown any aggression at all.  He is fed separately, but the other 
cats don't bother him.  He is not feral.  I was asked if I would take him home 
with me when I visited in October.  I took him to the local vet to be tested 
and that is when it was discovered that he is FeLV+.  I have a 3yo female cat 
who is FeLV-.  There is no way I could keep him separated from my cat.

While the rest of the colony will survive the winter, it is doubtful if Storm 
would make it through the winter outside and without a regular source of food.  
The campground where he is now closes at the end of November.  I honestly think 
he would make a wonderful pet.
