It sounds like you're doing everything you can.  My first positive went through 
2 very bad periods and recovered to live to 7 or 8 years old.   I hope Tora 
pulls through.
  take care,

I`ve had FeLV possitive cats, I had two before, one lived a long normal
 life and the other pulled through the first bout of sickness like Tora, maybe 
not as bad, but I remember she didn`t eat for days too! But I lost her to 
Lymphoma cancer a year later. Any advice help, information would be truely 
appreciated!! hugs and purrs Amanda and Tora.

Amanda, my FeLV+ kitties haven't crashed yet so I don't know the odds of 
pulling through.  My Sissy did have swollen lymph nodes that improved after a 
round of a/b,  I do know a sick kitty needs fluids and food.   You can blend 
most pate style canned foods with a little liquid until it is the consistency 
of a thick milk shake and syringe feed Tora.  There is a Yahoo Assist Feeding 
group with more info.
http://pets.groups.yahoo.com/group/Feline-Assisted-Feeding/
You could also try meat baby food (no onions or garlic) if that is available in 
Japan.  Until you are able to get a handle on his problems it is important to 
get food into him.  Sick kitties actually need more calories than healthy 
kitties.
 
There are meds for pain like buprenorphine (Buprenex) that are very effective.  
Please do not use Metacam (meloxicam) which can lead to kidney failure in some 
cats, 
Hugs to Tora

amanda,  since you are using vets, acupuncture and holistic, that is about all 
we can do.  try praying.  God can work miracles if that is in His plan.  at 
least, He can give you the strength to get thru this.  dorlis

Of course he has a chance.  Please remember none of us are guaranteed  
any specific time on this earth.  All we can hope/pray for is to be  
cared for and loved...Tora has that.  Please do not focus on  
what may happen but care for Tora and enjoy his love.  I do know what  
I am talking about.  I learned from the Royal Princess Kitty Katt and  
my Junior Partner, Dixie Louise Doodle Katt.  The lessons are hard but  
very important.  You are doing wonderfully.  Tora is cared for and  
knows lovewhat more can any of us ask for?

Blessings to you all and, most of all, peace.
