Oh boy thank you for the props. :)  I'm so glad I didnt put him to sleep the moment they found out he was FELV.  That was presented as an option, and I thought I at least have to go do some research, and give him some love and snuggles tonight if he really has to be put to sleep... but then

Good for you for giving this little guy some good times at the end of his life. Had you not been there for him, he would have suffered so much out there. No matter what happened to him in the first part of his life, he got to know love and caring and the good life he so deserved. Thank you so

Julie, thank you for taking in Dude and giving him the love and attention he deserved. At least in the end he knew he was loved. We each do what we can to help the FeLV kitties but you took that extra step to help a stray who desperately needed you. Thanks to you he had a peaceful passing.

Thanks. That's what's getting me by too, knowing that had we not snatched him up last month, right now he'd be frustrated and scared, wondering how in the heck he was going to eat tonight since he couldnt make it up the stairs to the food dish on my neighbor's porch.  I just cant imagine.

Hi, Julie. Sorry you lost your boy. This so sounds like my own intro to FeLV, when a stray came to my door and yowled to get in. He was a sweet and friendly boy, ready for affection even during the first few days, when he had horrific mats in his fur -- he looked like he had wings, but they were

Julie, His fate would probably been much worse than that. Cats that are sick or impaired become prey...easy prey...instead of hunters. I am sure you know that cats don't show their people symptoms when they are sick..it is because they will die in the wildthe same, to a degree

Hi Julie, I've met you in some of the other cat groups we were both in. How sad about your stray dude. This is quite common with FelV cats. I've had several who lost the use of their back legs. Thank heavens you found this cat and you were able to give him a few weeks of love and care
