 Sabrina in one lucky girl. We had originally hoped  prayed we could 
 find someone who would give her a temporary room for the period of time 
 needed for testing to determine whether she could beat this thing. We 
 sent out SO many emails  talked to SO many people. Contacted all the 
 networks we with. But over the weekend, the golden goose flew over  
 laid the proverbial egg on us. Not only does Sabrina get a room, she 
 gets a home!
 
 This is a young couple who live in Spring Green, WI, where Mew Haven  I 
 am. The woman is the daughter of one of my good friends  a nicer, more 
 warm family could never be asked for. They had two Siamese cats that 
 they lost last year so Shelley asked a lot of questions about Sabrina  
 about the disease. I told her everything I knew which i s what I posted 
 here initially. That Sabrina might not live long but on the other hand 
 with good care  a stress free environment, she might beat it  live a 
 long healthy life. Or she might just be a carrier  live many years. I 
 pointed out that there are no guarantees with any pets  that there are 
 FeLeuk kitties that live longer than non-FeLeuk kitties.
 
 Shelley's  Mark's girls are 13  16. Both Shelley  Mark love cats  
 so do the girls but it was the girls' decision because losing their 
 Siamese last year had been very hard on them. I was absolutely fine 
 with that  told Shelley to tell the girls that it is possible that they 
 might have to say goodbye sooner than they want but on the other hand 
 this is a chance for both of them to play a huge role in the life of one 
 little special needs cat. And as it turns out, it's what they want to 
 do! They are both very excited. And as Vicki, Shelley's mom told me, 
 there could not possibly be a kitty who will be loved more than Sabrina 
 will be.
 
 But listen to THIS! The girls wanted to know if it would be ok if they 
 changed her name to Eleanor. For Eleanor Roosevelt who was such a 
 strong woman! Do these kids get it or not?!! They do! I 
 am so grateful.
 
 Sabrina/Eleanor is being spayed this week  will have her IFA done. My 
 friend who works MH with me  I will drive up  get Eleanor a week from 
 today.
 
 So far so beautifully good!

Blessings to all of you who have helped this wonderful little girl.   
My Dixie left this world a long time before I wanted but she had a  
couple of wonderful years that most cats would exchange several of  
their 9 lives for.  I would encourage them to see if there is a  
holistic vet in the area who works with a regular vet.  I truly  
believe my holistic vet (who chose holistic work after practicing  
conventional vet work) with helping Dixie have a wonderful quality of  
life and letting her leave this world with as little trauma (to her--- 
not to me) as possible.  She worked closely with my regular vets and,  
together, my little girl went from being a feral/throw-away who was  
expected to leave this world in a very few months to a wonderful,  
confident girl who had EVERYTHING for about three years.   
There was a lot of pain for me, Dixie's fans and all the vets when she  
left this world (by the way, she did it on her own--not interested in  
being anywhere near a vet thank you).  There was a lot of relief from  
the same people when I took death off the table for Dixie after she  
came into my life...she did have a wonderful support group.  She has  
been gone three years (yes, that seems to be a constant number in my  
life) and I miss her so much but wouldn't trade anything for the  
wonderful time I have with her.

Diet?  Easy - Eliot Spitty is not a big eater, and I will just restrict the
bowl of dry food that Mr. Tux loves to munch on in addition to their
allotted 1/2 can each.
I could hardly pick up his carrier - a lightweight soft one.

I had a 30 pounder and he was close to 4 ft long, which I hate to admit, but 
he had an eating disorder. He ate bath tissue, facial tissue,  licked 
plastic bags. If you still did not feed him, he tossed his stomach bile. He 
would scratch at our brand new king mattress and keep us up at night if we 
did not feed him. We used the squirt bottle so much that he just started 
sitting there with his eyes slammed shut and just let us squirt him. We also 
tried feeding him the Purina OM diet (this was 10+ yrs ago) and he did not 
eat enough of it (I also had another cat at the time) and then he had liver 
problems. We put him back on his previous food. I used a diff vet then but 
he told me just let him be fat and happy, we did. He lived to be 16 1/2 yrs. 
We still miss him!!! He's been gone for 5 yrs :(

Sabrina in one lucky girl.  We had originally hoped  prayed we
could find



someone who would give her a temporary room for the period of time
needed
for testing to determine whether she could beat this thing. We sent
out SO



many emails  talked to SO many people.  Contacted all the networks
we
with.  But over the weekend, the golden goose flew over  laid the
proverbial egg on us. Not only does Sabrina get a room, she gets a
home!

This is a young couple who live in Spring Green, WI, where Mew
Haven  I
am. The woman is the daughter of one of my good friends  a nicer,
more
warm family could never be asked for.  They had two Siamese cats
that they



lost last year so Shelley asked a lot of questions about Sabrina 
about
the disease.  I told her everything I knew which i s what I posted
here
initially.  That Sabrina might not live long but on the other hand
with
good care  a stress free environment, she might beat it  live a
long
healthy life. Or she might just be a carrier  live many years.  I
pointed



out that there are no guarantees with any pets  that there are
FeLeuk
kitties that live longer than non-FeLeuk kitties.

Shelley's  Mark's girls are 13  16.  Both Shelley  Mark love
cats  so
do the girls but it was the girls' decision because losing their
Siamese
last year had been very hard on them.  I was absolutely fine with
that 
told Shelley to tell the girls that it is possible that they might
have to



say goodbye sooner than they want but on the other hand this is a
chance
for both of them to play a huge role in the life of one little
special
needs cat.  And as it turns out, it's what they want to do!  They
are both



very excited.  And as Vicki, Shelley's mom told me, there could not
possibly be a kitty who will be loved more than Sabrina will be.

But listen to THIS!  The girls wanted to know if it would be  ok if
they
changed her name to Eleanor.  For Eleanor Roosevelt who was such a
strong
woman!  Do these kids get it or not?!!  They do!I
am so
grateful.

Sabrina/Eleanor is being spayed this week  will have her IFA done.
My

So far so beautifully good!

Wow, this is truly golden! I love that the kids are really old enough to
understand what's going on with Sabrina and to be proactive in her care. And
I LOVE them wanting to name her after Eleanor Roosevelt. Sounds like this is
a great family!

But listen to THIS!  The girls wanted to know if it would be  ok if they
changed her name to Eleanor.  For Eleanor Roosevelt who was such a

am so grateful.

Sabrina/Eleanor is being spayed this week  will have her IFA done. My

So far so beautifully good!

Not fluffy, not big - just huge!  When he walks, he looks like a big cat,
the muscles moving back and forth like in slow motion.
We also have his father - he's just average size.  Also NOT FeLV +!

 I had a 30 pounder and he was close to 4 ft long, which I hate to admit, 
 but

 he had an eating disorder. He ate bath tissue, facial tissue,  licked
 plastic bags. If you still did not feed him, he tossed his stomach bile. 
 He
 would scratch at our brand new king mattress and keep us up at night if we
 did not feed him. We used the squirt bottle so much that he just started
 sitting there with his eyes slammed shut and just let us squirt him. We 
 also

 tried feeding him the Purina OM diet (this was 10+ yrs ago) and he did not
 eat enough of it (I also had another cat at the time) and then he had 
 liver
 problems. We put him back on his previous food. I used a diff vet then but
 he told me just let him be fat and happy, we did. He lived to be 16 1/2 
 yrs.

 We still miss him!!! He's been gone for 5 yrs :(

Blessings to all of you who have helped this wonderful little girl.   
My Dixie left this world a long time before I wanted but she had a couple of
wonderful years that most cats would exchange several of their 9 lives for.
I would encourage them to see if there is a holistic vet in the area who
works with a regular vet.  I truly believe my holistic vet (who chose
holistic work after practicing conventional vet work) with helping Dixie
have a wonderful quality of life and letting her leave this world with as
little trauma (to her--- not to me) as possible.  She worked closely with my
regular vets and, together, my little girl went from being a
feral/throw-away who was expected to leave this world in a very few months
to a wonderful,  
confident girl who had EVERYTHING for about three years.   
There was a lot of pain for me, Dixie's fans and all the vets when she left
this world (by the way, she did it on her own--not interested in being
anywhere near a vet thank you).  There was a lot of relief from the same
people when I took death off the table for Dixie after she came into my
life...she did have a wonderful support group.  She has been gone three
years (yes, that seems to be a constant number in my
life) and I miss her so much but wouldn't trade anything for the wonderful
time I have with her.

and they are unbelievably big.  
My mom's cat, Lucky (now my cat, really) weighs in at 13 # and I can hardly
stand for him to spend a lot of time on my lap.  He's heavy!  Can't imagine
