Don't despair, my Oreo was diagnosed positive at 3 months with similar symptons 
like your Laura. He is still alive and is 3 years old. Still positve but 
healthy 13 pound boy, my vet took goog care of him.

Laura, sending positive thoughts your way for little Laura.  Hoping it is
something an antibiotic will fix.  Will she let you assist feed her?  It is so
important to get food into sick kitties.

 My Positive blind girl is sick, I
 have had her for just a year now and this is the first time
 she's been ill.  I had my neighbor take her to my vet
 yesterday and she had a fever of 104.9, she's also not
 eating much and VERY lethargic.  I'm very worried.  
  
 I adopted Laura (she was named after me by my vets staff,
 long story) because she was living at the vets, was blind
 and being tormented by another cat.  I had her tested when
 I brought her home and found out she was pos, she came from
 a colony that had alot of pos's, so I think she'd been pos
 since a kitten, just didn't show on her first snap test. 
 Anyway, at that time we found out the cat that was bullying
 her was also pos, he recently passed away.
  
 Laura will be three next month, I've read that many kitties
 don't live more than 2-3 years after diagnosis.. Vet drew
 blood yesterday so today we should get those results
 back...please keep a good thought it's not something dire.
  
 Laura

Re: [Felvtalk] FeLV+ kitty is sick

2009-05-05 Thread Elizabeth Paz

Hi  Laurie, 


As you know we went to the vet today and did the blood panel and urinalysis and 
then decided to do the ear test.  By this time Kitty was overly stressed and 
subsequently received a 23.3 reading.  It was just a few days ago when he got a 
13.9 reading.  I wish that he did this test first to reduce all his stress.  He 
had his prednisone yesterday and of course we've been giving him the Methyl B12 
which does have sugar in it.  However he is more lively and has more strength 
in his hind quarters-it's not perfect but much better than just a few days ago. 
 We're so disappointed with the ear prick test but have high hopes regarding 
the urinalysis and blood work.
 
We spoke to the vet briefly regarding Lantus and have found out that our 
pharmacy stocks it which is good.  Today wasn't the right time to go into 
everything until all the tests come back but we made it clear to him that we 
are going to take a proactive role in Kitty's health.At this point in time 
I'm not interested in how this vet feels. We got Kitty through the FELV with a 
very good knowlegeable friend when everyone else was telling us to put him down 
but six years later we still have him. This is definitely going to be hard for 
me.  I have no problem giving needles to other people including myself but I 
have a hard time with my cats.


When I had to give Simba antibiotics for 10 days I was lousy at it and didn't 
have the thrust to get the needle in.  I know that I will think positively and 
for sure we'll be home testing. If this all comes to pass and he has to go on 
insulin I just have to keep repeating to myself that I will be able to do it as 
I have no choice.
 
Thank you so much Laurie  for all your help. Tomorrow when we hear from the vet 
I will let you know what the outcome is.
 
Liz

I'm so sorry Laurie, I sent an email to you by mistake;  it was for someone at 
the pet diabetes group.

 

 Laura God must have put us together.   Regarding your baby Laura our Kitty 
(his real name)  was diagnosed with FELV when he was 2.  Kitty is now turning 8 
years old and has fought many an infection.  He's on prednisone 2.5 mg every 
other day and has been as healthy and vibrant as any other cat and you would 
not be able to tell the difference.  It just so happens that we've been told 
that he could have diabetes so another mountain to climb and another battle to 
win.  Don't give up, never quit and just keep loving her-magic happens look at 
our Kitty.  Please write me any time you want if you have any questions or ever 
need someone to talk to.

Laura what a wonderful thing you did taking in a sweet little girl.  Regardless 
of whatever happens look at the love she's been receiving from you.  God bless.
