Re: [Felvtalk] kitten vs. cat when adding a positive

2011-01-06 Thread Trish Sebben
If anyone is interested in adding a healthy positive adult  to their home, my 
beloved foster cat Zelda is still available for adoption after one year. We 
cannot mainstream her due to the health conditions of one of our own cats, so 
she has a room of her own in our house (with plenty of love and company, but 
still, she deserves a home of her own). She remains asymptomatic after her 
rescue last January. Our vet declares her one of the healthiest he has ever 
seen. She enjoys lap time, her laser, and watching tv. A real sweetheart. Click 
on the link below to see her petfinder profile, or contact me for more info. I 
am willing to transport almost anywhere for the right home for this sweet girl.
Love to all the fur-babies and the wonderful folks who care for them,
Trish and Zelda

Shannon,
 I don't know whether or not there is a difference in the direness between 
the ages, however I know that typically they give a worse prognosis for young 
kittens who are already symptomatic. Every cat is different so it is really 
hard to make that call. I say go with your gut. Our FeLV Maggie is 2 1/2 and 
she has been symptomatic since she was a small kitten. Good luck with whichever 
you choose and God bless you for taking in another FeLV!

 Would it be true that if a young
 kitten, 3 mos, is positive on an IFA that is more dire than
 a 2 yr old cat being confirmed on that test? It seems like
 the younger the diagnosis, the sadder the outcome?
  
 I am asking because in considering a friend for Whimsy,
 I've heard about a local 3 mos old female who is positive. 
 I am still waiting for the shelter to let me know if it was
 IFA confirmed. There is another positive, but he is a very
 large intimidating male and my instinct tells me he
 wouldn't be right for our guy.   I also have been approved
 to adopt in WI, a few hrs drive, with a group that has
 several 1-4 year old male and female positives.
  
 Whimsy has started trying to play with his brothers on the
 other side of the door and it's adorable.  I'm not quite
 sure a kitten would be the best idea for Whimsy or for us,
 but we shall see!

Trust your instincts.and that kitten, even if it has a short life,  
would love to live with you and Whimsy.  It takes a lot of guts and a  
really big heart to take on a positive..and those who do are  
rewarded with the best of love from the little ones.

2011-01-02 Thread Emeraldkittee
thanks, everyone.  I will go with what feels right.
 
I met the sweet kitten today - she currently has a URI; there was also 
confusion about her status - she won't be retested (ELISA) until the end of 
Jan; there were no plans there to get her the IFA, and they didn't seem to know 
about it.  No judgement there, it's a shelter doing the best they can but of 
course, I would need this done.  They want to wait and see what the ELISA is 
again; guess we'll go from there.  I also found out she was a part of a litter, 
all of whom tested negative.  She is adorable, but for whatever reason I'm 
leaning towards some other adult kitties with another rescue.  We'll be making 
a trip up there (weather cooperating) in a few weeks.  Don't you wish you could 
take them all?
