Thank you Wendy.

I will call my vet today about the Doxycycline and Hemobartanella.

Here are the results of BooBoo's blood work.  This is a Canadian lab so I don't 
know if the values are the same as in the US.

WBC9.9MCV57   WBC FLAGEOS 
(8.9)
RBC3.95   MCH20.0  % LYM29.1
LYM2.8
HGB7.9 MCHC  35.2 % MON6.5  
   MONO  .6
HCT22.4RDW17.5 % GRA64.4
6.5
PLT81MPV11.0

He wasn't doing very well last night, extremely fatigued.  I did hear him 
eating some crunchy food this morning, drink either the water or milk I put 
down for him last night.  I know you aren't supposed to give cats milk but I'm 
desparate here to get some fluids into him.  He did wake me up by jumping on 
the bed this morning and purring in my face.  My husband thought he felt really 
warm last night and actually I did too.  He's cool this momrning.  What I have 
noticed that kind of concerns me is that when he's sleeping his chest seems to 
rise unusually high with each breath, like he has to try extra hard to breath.  
This could be the anemia right?  He does have a bit of a runny nose too.  
Calling the vet today.  I did manage to get the previous owners to give me his 
birthday.  He will be 5 in July.  This makes me think that he got infected by a 
neighborhood cat when he was allowed to roam.  If that's the case, 
statistically he's on his last leg.  I was also wondering if he could be 
depressed.  As bad as his previous environment was, maybe he misses those 
people and his original home.  Could hormonal changes after his neutering be a 
reason for his lack of interest in anything?  He was just neutered last Friday.

Gotta get moving here and go to work, although BooBoo is my real full time job 
these days.

extremely difficult to see the parasites on a slide; one minute they're there, 
the next they're not.  The treatment is three weeks minimum.  Third, prednisone 
(or prednisolone) is a good treatment for anemia.  Also, depending on how dire 
the anemia is, Epogen might also be good.  There is lots of information on both 
of these treatments in the archives.  Fourth, what is the anemia diagnosis?  Is 
it regenerative or non-regenerative anemia?  What is Boo Boo's HCT/RBC/PCV

it so that you know exactly what you're dealing with.  You can post those 
numbers here and there will be people who know what they mean who can help you 
and Boo Boo. 

  Please keep us posted on Boo Boo's progress and if you need anything at 
all, just ask!

  Hi Lynne 

  I thought I sent you a couple links to check with for the IR one was in 
Canada. I think it could only be ordered by a vet. Goes by the name 
Equistim(big vial bc it for horses). Also looks like Revival would ship you 
would have to call them for specifics. Good luck.

I'm sorry for not being knowledgeable of this, but what is CLS and the 
bridge you folks refer to?  

I've been busy trying to find some ray of hope for my BooBoo.  I showed his 
blood work to the doc next door at work, who is a dog lover, not a cat but he 
interpreted it as being pretty bad.  He said he has no platelets.  He then got 
on the phone to a Vet friend who takes care of his dogs and gave him a brief 
history of Boo and his blood work.  The vet said there was nothing I could do 
about the situation and that most cats after being diagnosed lived for 2 years 
at a max.  I don't even know when BooBoo contracted the disease so who knows 
how long he has.  This vet though kept saying, it doesn't mean he's going to 
die, whatever the H that means.  I also have a pharmacist friend who is meeting 
with a vet friend of his in Detroit tomorrow and he too is running Boo's 
history by him to see if there is anything at all to help him.  Apparently 
Immuno Regulin is not available here in Canada so he's going to talk to this 
man about it tomorrow.  People have been very kind and honest but I just am 
finding this impossible to accept.  I can't wait to get home from work to see 
him and almost start bawling when I am with him.  I totally hate this.  I just 
hope he isn't feeling any pain.  He mostly sleeps but does purr a lot and seems 
to love having us around him.  I just don't know what else to do.

   Hello everyone I haven't posted in a while ,but I have been reading
everyday so I can keep up with what is happening .  I just have to say
that when I was a child I had a neighbor who had a calico girl who lived
to be 30 years old. She was blind and deaf but till the day she died
everyday she would follow him out to check the mail box on the curb .
She was a celebrity around here and people would bring there children to
see her. Her owner died two weeks after she past. He was 86 years old. I
believe he died of a broken heart.
   I have to tell the new members (the older ones know my story) that I
had one boy felv+ who lived  18 yrs and one girl felv+ 17 years. I've
been very lucky to have several live to there teens, But I've also lost
many young ones to this terrible illness. 
   Recently I took my 15 year old boy Dooley to a new vet for some
dental work . He had been diagnosed with felv when he was 3 years old.
Well Dooley is now testing negative . Sometime over the years he threw
off the virus. I was shocked and so happy . I was afraid to tell anyone
until now I thought maybe something was wrong with the test.  So I asked
another vet friend of mine to test him again and was told he is
negative.
   Never give up hope , enjoy everyday you have with your babies. They
may out live you.

you spend it thinking about the possible future you will miss the

Dear Lynne, 
No one can say with certainty how long any of us are going to live. That
includes BooBoo. 
My view is that, just as my FeLV colony were lucky to find me, BooBoo
was very lucky to find you. His life has improved a hundredfold since he
became part of your family. 
Whatever you do, please please please don't allow negative thoughts to
dominate---BooBoo, plucky, lucky little soul that he is, sounds like he
is happy and enjoying life. He needs you to be strong and happy, like
him, and make the most of every day you have together. Remember, cats
are so sensitive to their humans' mood---even more important that you be
strong for him!
Take each day as it comes, enjoy all the time you have together--life is
short enough. 
Remember too there are people on the list who have FeLV cats that are a
ripe old age. One of mine threw off the virus, as did Michelle's cat
Minstrel just recently.
Enjoy the time you have together.
Did you contact Revival about sending Immuno Regulin to you? No go?
Apologies if you already posted the info on the list.

Re: CLS

2008-02-13 Thread Lynne
Thanks Kerri for your kind words.  I will contact Revival about the immuno 
regulin as soon as I get the ok from this vet in Detroit.  Have other FelV cats 
on the group had anemia and next to no platelet counts?  This is BooBoo's 
predicament.  I did find out today that he will be 5 years old this July which 
suggests to me that he may have contracted this disease from a neighborhood 
cat.  He would show up here in the summer with bloodied ears which Bob and I 
would put antibiotic ointment on.  If that is the case I don't  know how long 
he has.  He has a bit of a runny nose which is why I think he snorts when he 
eats.  I'm going to call the vet and see if this is an issue.

In the meantime, I am going to try to be more positive around him.

after diagnosis.  Well, Mandy is 6+ years old and who knows how long she has

FeLV, and I'm thinking maybe he's mistaken in that.  What he said was

  Have you asked about interferon ???
If you can find a vet that will keep a big supply of it on hand
in his freezer it isn't very expensive... I believe its made for
humans but does help for many animals as well...
Its has no taste and given orally... Some people mix it with food
or because it has no taste, just like water, it is easily given by
seringe if the cat isn't eating
  My vet talking with other vets on the internet says that most
believe that the newer IR isn't any better than the old interferon
which is much cheaper and easily given at home with little or no
stress to the cat...
  Some people give it all the time.. I give it at the very 1st sign
that there might be something wrong... It doesn't always work
but there have been times when I think it may have saved my cat...
At the very least it seems to improve the quality of life while looking
for other things.

I've done some reading about it Tad and it does sound like an alternative.  I'm 
waiting til I have a response from the Vet in Detroit and then I'll start 
looking for a vet that will work with me.  I'll see Boo's regular vet again and 
see what he's willing to do and if he isn't all that co-operative I'll contact 
this other vet in town.  My present vet did say at our first meeting that as 
problems arise he'd address them but I'm not certain that's the way to address 
this disease.  I definitely would prefer to be able to administer something at 
home that have to trott off to the vet twice a week.

Re: CLS ~ my cats lived LONG lives with FeLV

2008-02-13 Thread laurieskatz
ok time for me to chime in again. Squeaky lived to age 22 and Stripes lived to 
age 16. They were both feline leuk positive. Stripes was sick on and off and 
Squeaky was healthy except his final 3 weeks. HOPE reigns!
So little was known about FeLV at that time. I did NOTHING special for them 
(Squeaky died in 1996). All I did was love them and get Stripes to the vet when 
he was symptomatic.

 Lynn, this is the story of the Rainbow Bridge:

RainbowsBridge.com
 Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge. 
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet 
goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special 
friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and 
sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
 
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. 
Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we 
remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy 
and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to 
them, who had to be left behind. 
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and 
looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. 
Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs 
carrying him faster and faster. 

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you 
cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses 
rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look 
once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but 
never absent from your heart. 

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together  

Author unknown...
 
Hope that answers your question about the Bridge.

I think my cat (MeMe) feels so loved and cared for (she was thrown  
from a moving truck
onto the shelter's front porch) for the first time in her life that  
she doesn't intend to check out

anytime soon.
We have 'bliss therapy sessions' which consists of lap time for loud,  
trilling purrs for 10 minutes at a
clip. Cats have a 'mind, body' connection too. I am convinced that  
feeling loved and contented helps

their immunity.
If BooBoo has a good appetite and you can keep his symptoms at bay,  
he may be able turn his symptoms
around. What if the vet told you that his blood work was perfect?  
Imagine that on the day they did the blood work

it was awful, but since then it has changed for the better.
You might try l-lycine sprinkled on his food to help him get over the  
runny nose. (a 250mg capsule 2x a day)


I identify with the shock and depression you feel. Just know there  
are many exceptions to the statistics vets

throw around. Try finding a good homeopath.
AHVMA - American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association   http:// 
www.holisticvetlist.com/

If you search the Canadian list, you might find a vet near you.

BooBoo might surprise you. We're all rooting for him.

Someone on another cat list I'm on just lost a cat he says was FeLV+ and it was 
THIRTY years old!  Now, I'm not too sure how well-versed he is on FeLV, and I'm 
thinking maybe he's mistaken in that.  What he said was that the cat was 
infected with FeLV when a kitten and had to have both eyes removed.  So I 
don't know if it was something else entirely that he THINKS is FeLV or maybe 
the kitten later threw the virus, or what.  I'd LIKE to believe he's accurate, 
as I'm sure we all would!

I'll let others address your specific questions but I'll put my two cents worth 
in.  Look at homeopathic/alternative/complemtary vets, especially if 
conventional vets are not meeting your needs.  Enjoy the time you have 
together.  If you spend it thinking about the possible future you will miss the 
wonderful present...and the future may or may not be as you imagine it.  We 
all start dying the minute we are born.  We fear death but our friends do not.  
They live in the minute and that is what you need to do too.  I had a perfectly 
wonderful and apparently very healthy cat leave this world with cancer.  My 
little FeLV + girl has been with me 3 wonderful years and is apparently 
perfectly healthy.  We never know what will take us from this world or when.  
Please spend wonderful time with BooBoo.time enjoying him and listening to 
him.  Tell him of your fears if that will help you verbalize them and deal with 
them.   


Good luck and all the blessings of all the universes to you and Boo.  Don't 
waste the present.

Hey Lynne,

My name is Wendy.  I've been active on this site for over 2 years now, although 
not as active lately.  There are lots of good people here and it looks like 
you've been given some great advice.  I just wanted to say a few things that 
came to mind as I read the posts regarding Boo Boo, some of which might have 
already been touched on.  First, if you don't find a vet that will work to save 
Boo Boo, find one who will.  It means all the difference in you and Boo Boo 
being supported at this trying time.  Second, absolutely get the prescrip for 
doxycycline and treat for hemobartaenella regardless of the test.  It's 
extremely difficult to see the parasites on a slide; one minute they're there, 
the next they're not.  The treatment is three weeks minimum.  Third, prednisone 
(or prednisolone) is a good treatment for anemia.  Also, depending on how dire 
the anemia is, Epogen might also be good.  There is lots of information on both 
of these treatments in the
 archives.  Fourth, what is the anemia diagnosis?  Is it regenerative or 
non-regenerative anemia?  What is Boo Boo's HCT/RBC/PCV count exactly?  If you 
don't have a copy of his bloodwork, call the vet and get it so that you know 
exactly what you're dealing with.  You can post those numbers here and there 
will be people who know what they mean who can help you and Boo Boo.  

Please keep us posted on Boo Boo's progress and if you need anything at all,

Hi Wendy

I just saw on your last post that you are in Dallas - I'm in Denton. I just
joined this group about a month ago after the loss of one of our babies to
FeLV and now we are dealing with it in our almost 7 month old female manx.
It's nice to know someone is near by - is there a particular vet that you
would recommend in the area (or possibly/hopefully closer to Denton) ?  The
vet we used has not been extremely helpful or informative, simply because I
don't think that they have seen many cases that have positive outcomes
(their first advice for a symptomatic cat was to PTS)
So far, she is asymptomatic - save for the occasional runny nose/eyes which
I'm thinking is allergy related because it generally gets worse the same
time MY allergies flare up.

Anyway -

best wishes
Beth

Hello everyone I haven't posted in a while ,but I have  been reading everyday 
so I can keep up with what is happening .  I  just have to say that when I 
was a child I had a neighbor who had a calico  girl who lived to be 30 years 
old. She was blind and deaf but till the day she  died everyday she would 
follow 
him out to check the mail box on the curb . She  was a celebrity around here 
and people would bring there children to see her.  Her owner died two weeks 
after she past. He was 86 years old. I believe he died  of a broken heart.
   I have to tell the new members (the older ones know my story)  that I had 
one boy felv+ who lived  18 yrs and one girl felv+ 17  years. I've been very 
lucky to have several live to there teens, But I've  also lost many young ones 
to this terrible illness. 
   Recently I took my 15 year old boy Dooley to a new  vet for some dental 
work . He had been diagnosed with felv when he was  3 years old. Well Dooley is 
now testing negative . Sometime over the years he  threw off the virus. I was 
shocked and so happy . I was afraid to tell anyone  until now I thought maybe 
something was wrong with the test.  So I asked  another vet friend of mine to 
test him again and was told he is negative.
   Never give up hope , enjoy everyday you have with your babies.  They may 
out live you.

  Definitely!  Possum was such a sweet soul that I know he would be happy to 
know his name lives on in another baby kitty in need, and that he was the 
inspiration for that.  The name Possum also led to many wonderful nicknames and 
terms of endearment that I had for him, such as Possee (with the double-e in 
honor of my beloved, late Felv cat Monkee), Poss, PossRum, RumRum, Possil (like 
Fossil), and Rossi (I don't know why?  It just came out!).  And that little boy 
knew everyone of his nicknames and came to any and all of them!  I'll miss 
calling him by his nicknames at night when we settled into bed to read our 
book.  But I am glad that his story maybe revived something in you because 
typing it and getting such positive feedback from everyone on this site, 
definitely revived something in me.

   you've given me the inspiration I've needed to keep

He was a struggling, failing to thrive white w/ grey

rough start in life and I took him in to give him
TLC and see what I could do for him. Unfortunately,
I was unable to get him the vet care he
needed/deserved due to approval problems with the
adoption group he belonged to/I volunteered for and
I will forever regret that and feel guilty. But I
know I gave him a wonderful few months that he
wouldn't have had if I hadn't taken him in: he was
kept warm, freed from the pet store condos, got the
royalest treatment of all my fosters b/c I never
made him stay in the condo-he had free reign of my
two bedrooms, he slept on the bed with me curled in
my arms or on my chest or shoulder every night and
we had love-fest sessions every morning, with him
purring away, he got the highest quality food and
supplements, holistic vet treatments, and a little
kitty heating pad that became his all time favorite
thing. Sadly though, for
whatever reason, whether it be FIP, a congenital
heart defect, or both, his little body couldn't keep
up with his mind and desire to live and he crashed
without warning (besides a swollen belly) on me in
the early morning hours of Sunday and I rushed him
to the emergency vet clinic to end his suffering. 
He was a wonderfully sweet little boy and although
he was more an old-man cat then the 7 mo kitten he
was supposed to be, I loved him for who and what he
was and I will miss him dearly, especially because
he became my sleeper-bud and I haven't had one since
Monkee left me in July. 

He was my first cat/foster kitten to die since
Monkee and that makes it even more heartbreaking for
me b/c the Monkee loss is still so fresh. I also

Possum knew he was loved and cared for, and that is the greatest gift.
I am so sorry.

I'll miss calling him by his nicknames at night when we settled

 Caroline, I love possums and I love that name! Please
 don't feel guilty. Whatever time Possum had here, the
 two of you made it better for each other. And
 you've given me the inspiration I've needed to keep
 focused on rescue, (burnt out!) so you and Possum have
 had a ripple effect that will help a few more sweet
 and gentle souls.

 Oddly enough, I have been after a grey and white male
 with a hurt foot and sore mouth, and just took in a
 grey and white youngster who flung himself into
 traffic trying to get away from a cord wrapped around
 his neck. I think Possum is a great name and if you
 don't mind, I might borrow it.

Caroline,

I'm sorry to read of Possum's passing. It's so hard to lose these
cherished
innocent ones, but it seems even more unfair when they're so young.
Thank you for
taking such good care of him, and for loving him and giving him those
wonderful months.

Thank you.  I had a talk with Monkee this morning and I told him he better be 
on his best behavior and to be nice to that sweet little soul Possum b/c you 
know, Monkee was a rougher-upper of other cats (hence, likely the source of his

Hi Caroline,

I'm sorry to hear about sweet Possum.  He was very lucky to have had you caring 
for him.  And I'm sorry that this hurts so much, given Monkee's recent passing. 
 You have a wonderful, kind spirit towards cats, and I hope you get joy back 
from that a hundred fold what you go through in grief when you lose one of your

RE: CLS- Possum

2008-01-21 Thread Caroline Kaufmann

Definitely!  Possum was such a sweet soul that I know he would be happy to know 
his name lives on in another baby kitty in need, and that he was the 
inspiration for that.  The name Possum also led to many wonderful nicknames and 
terms of endearment that I had for him, such as Possee (with the double-e in 
honor of my beloved, late Felv cat Monkee), Poss, PossRum, RumRum, Possil (like 
Fossil), and Rossi (I don't know why?  It just came out!).  And that little boy 
knew everyone of his nicknames and came to any and all of them!  I'll miss 
calling him by his nicknames at night when we settled into bed to read our 
book.  But I am glad that his story maybe revived something in you because 
typing it and getting such positive feedback from everyone on this site, 
definitely revived something in me.

Do we know for a fact that Scooter, the FeLV+ kitty was gone ??
I heard that some unknown number of animals were in foster homes...

But I was hopping that this unlucky kitty got a bit of good luck and was

Please take a few moments to add them to your thoughts during

most were not (maybe when they rebuild they will have a wing
dedicated to Scooter for the FELV+ cats). A couple of dogs were
lost as well, from reports at their website, and 5 cats were able
to be rescued, I do not know if they are any shown on the memorial
page. Please remember, MANY animals that end up in shelters were
previously someone's pet, and this tragedy will certainly effect
those owners who had to give up their cat to this shelter. This
was a no-kill shelter.

but they had to wait until later on, because of the
system being messed up.

I can tell you that they did find one cat in the
rubble that was alive and fine.

The fireman who was back there with the cats was on
his way out of the bldg. after they called for
everyone to get out, when the roof collapsed.  he is a
young man (31) and he got out of the hospital today.

Thank you all for your care and compassion.  You know,
I didn't get any feedback from the other lists I
posted on...not that they needed to.  It was just a
thought.

 This has been a very difficult year for rescue here. 
Most of my friends in rescue lost many many cats to
distemper.  It hit like lightning to the very young
before they could vaccinate.  They ended up spending a
small fortune doing intra-nasal on tiny kittens.

I had more to say, but i need to go to the dentist,
and DH is already in the van.  So much to do before
this move!!!

That looks prefect to me. I did email them and ask if they wanted additional 
animals
added (ones not listed at petfinder), but I'm sure they are just trying to cope 
right
now, and not checking email. If they do add more, you wont have to change 
anything,
as the link will not change, I'll just add to that same page.

but that just wasn't meant to be

Carmellia was a middle aged kitty who had been isolated from other kitties
and she was a bit over whelmed with all my other kitties... She stayed in
the isolation cage most of the 6 months time that she was here... Her
own choice... the door was open... She was friendly though and loved
attention in her cage... Just the last month she was starting to sneak out
and come to me if the others were sleeping... I can't help but wonder

You must be getting very low on FELV+ cats now, it seems like you didn't have 
more
than 10 when I brought you the Angel Wings babies. Who is still with you at this
point? Did you ever get your garage converted over to another cat room like you 
had
planned? Have you begun to rebuild at your other home site where your other

burned down? I know you had lots of plans last time we talked in person, but 
that's

2006-04-20 Thread Lee Soper
some thing to smile about.Well I was not smiling at the time, but in tears, Sunday is my day for me, and I going mountain climbing with some friends, and at the end of the day we have a cheap meal some where. where upon I try to save the scraps off my plate and every one else who has left any thing.
Well that's the general ideal any way. Some times if I am Lucky there is meat serve up in a big dish where every one helps them self's, and theres quite a bit left, Oh goodie too shoes, lots for the strays that I call off to on the way home. 
In Spain there are little groups of cats that hang around the dust bin areas waiting for the chance that the big lids are left open and they can do a bit of rummaging. I know of quite a few pit stops where I can drop my scraps, and have the joy of seeing them devour my offering. I also carry around in the car a few cans of cat food and cheap dry cat nuts, which  are added to the offering if it is a lean one.
Well this would not  be the first time that I have been challenged on the left overs, where upon 3 out of the 10 of my so call friends are so hard up that they wish to take home some of the meat for a sandwich for the next day. (One Lady has just inherit half a house.)
Obviously not animal loves.Some of us where still eating, But the left overs had began to take up the converstavion, and I could see that what I had my eye on, was going to disappear into some ones sandwich the following day. So I picked another piece of meat out of the dish and added it to my empty plate.
and took a bite out of it, and then stop eating.my so called friend who was sitting opposite me, challenge my action suggesting that I had only taken the meat to prove a point.I was so shock that I did not believe what I had just herd and had to request her to repeat her self.
Which she did, Well my god did the shit hit the fan.Quite a few hot words were exchange along side a few swear words from my self, at this stage I was close to tears and not really holding them back too well, ( I think all the up set of losing Tabbs and the last 3 months of my fight for him, and taken its toll. ) I am not normally so up set able
While the fire works where flying one of my other friends said that I could have her meat, and that she was only interested in the bones for her neighbours dog. and had started to collect some of the meat from the table, which I think made things even worst.
At this stage I felt I was so hurt by what had happen, and also the fact that this had obviously been a on going problem which I had been unaware of. But so petty.Any way I pulled my money out and left a payment for my meal on the table and left empty handed.
But as I got to my car my friends husband and another friends dogie wife followed me out to the car with a doggies bag full of all the meat which she gee fully told me she had taken for me. She also told me that I was not wrong and that my friend and been out of order.
This made me feel a lot better. But this happen last Sunday, and its only now that I can see a funnier side to it.There was a big satisfaction at the end of my drive home, when I stopped of to put out the pickings, there where 2 of my normal strays that came down from the hiding place to take my offerings.
They are too wild for me to touch, and also I do not go every day, as I do not wish too let them down when I am not available for them. also I will be out of Spain, for a month, later in the year. Also they do seem to be coping weight wise quite well. I think taht my be they have another source from else way.
My friend who had brought the food out to me when I went to the car, phoned me up later that evening and told me that also the so called friend and also called me a bitch,So I don't think I will be walking with that group of friends for quite some time.
Hope that some of you can see a funner side to this. along side the sad side of how sad some people can been regarding the well fair of our felines.Also I know that some of my friends think I am a bit of a standing joke, But I do not care.
Take care to you all, wish and praying for you unwell felines, and once again thank you all for all your support over Tabbs troubles.Sandra Tabbs past, plus Suzy one eyed Copper and UK suzy. plus Chang look alike who calls during the night for his food that I have been leaving out for him.

Thanks, Tonya. Surely it is all over for a while now. Hunny Bunny was a shy litttle girl, semi-feralish - who some days I'd see a lot and other times not see for a couple of days. I had trapped her in my neighborhood and she seemed happy living indoors.When she was feeling brave she'd come up and bite me on the leg! Just a little love nip. And her tail, iinstead of sticking straight up when she was happy would curl over her back. She was so pretty and shiny black. Graybe had been my mom's cat, one of the babies who let me and my cats move into their house after my mom died. Graybe had showed up one day, hung around the carport, always wanting in. Finally one day my mom opened the door, Graybe came in and never once asked to go outside again. He'd picked his home! He was - as you might have figured - the prettiest dark gray. He was at least 15, probably more. Such sweet

 Barb Moermond [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote:
   Hi all, it's been a rough week all over it seems. 
 This morning, my mom and stepdad had their kitty
 Tigger put to sleep.  She was nearly 17 and had been
 with them since early-mid kittenhood.  One night
 during a snowstorm, my stepdad had just closed the
 shop and was standing at the truck door when a
 little rub was felt on his ankle and tiny squeaking
 was heard.  This little white and buff kitten with
 very noticeable injuries was at his feet. 
 Naturally, he scooped her up and brought her home. 
 They called her Fart for quite a while - any of you
 who have rescued mal- and/or under-nourished kits
 know this well:)  She was a very pretty kitty, small
 head and delicate facial features, tiny feet,
 long legs:)  sort of built like a race horse.  
 She was an excellent hunter and lap-warmer.  But
 those injuries had long-term effects.  The soft
 tissue of her right wrist had completely worn out
 due to her limping from the old injury on her left
 shoulder/leg.  She was flat footed on that paw.
   She also developed spinal arthritis, as another
 kitty of my mom's had.  With that, it's only a
 matter of time before the nerves just don't work in
 the hind quarters.  Mom had tremendous guilt about
 old Samantha; she'd waited far too long to help her.
  Tigger hadn't progressed nearly as far as Sam had,
 but she was declining rapidly.  She wasn't playing
 on her own anymore, and she'd previously spent hours
 amusing herself with string tied to the back of a
 rocking chair.  She was allowing Bozo to groom her
 for longer and longer sessions which was simply
 unheard of - Bozo was an interloper, no matter how
 many mice he caught for her!  She also didn't know
 whether or not she'd made it to the box - messes in
 the vicinity etc.  But what was far more worrying is
 that when she did make it to the box and stepped in
 a clump, she couldn't feel the debris on her foot -
 which of course dried on like cement - and therefore
 wasn't grooming her feet.  The deafness she'd
 developed and the weakening
  eyesight weren't important, but when they lose
 their grooming and their playing  Tigger had an
 amazing run of years considering the start she had
 and fortunately, my mom will have no serious
 second-guessing about doing it too soon (the vet
 agreed with the decision, which helped) or guilt
 about doing it too late and making Tigger suffer
 unnecessarily (like with Sam).  It's the hardest
 decision we have to make, but the grief is worth it
 - all the moments of joy and love far outweigh the
 pain of losing a friend.. eventually anyway.
 
   So Belinda, if you could please add to the FeLV-
 list, Tigger, loved by Maggie and Dale.  It was this
 morning, March 4.
 
 As always, I'm so glad I know all of you:)  you
 bring joy and understanding and compassion to the
 world.

urinary issues Re: CLS addition

2006-03-07 Thread Barb Moermond
Cindy,  I don't know if the Hills SD is comparable to the Royal Canin s/d, but the RC s/d is a temporary diet (3 wks ish) designed to lower the pH of the urine in order to dissolve the struvite crystals. The Royal Canin s/o is designed to normalize the pH of urine;keep it in the neutral middleto preventstruvite (high pH) and/or oxalate (low pH). Smoky's first episode (very bloody urine, no crystals, no bacteria) was in January of last year (2005) and he did very well with his diet about half s/o, half other (CA Natural, Eagle Pack). Then theTuesday beforeThanksgiving, we had to go to the ER, again, no crystals and no bacteria, but enough blood to have the urine sample clot in the tube. Symptoms again on December 8. This time there was struvite and bacteria. The first abx didn't work, so tried 2nd, that did. He was still on the medicine and diet for the dec 8 outbreak when symptoms
 popped up again on Dec 22. no crystals and no bacteria. You can see my eye twitching by this point, can't you. My poor boy was miserable during those outbreaks and even though I was doing everything I could afford to do, I felt helpless. He then was blocked on Feb 14 - another trip to the ER. THAT was scary, he was so not himself. So, diet is no longer half s/o, half other - it's completely s/o and we upped his glucosamine/chondroitin dosage (1 capsule of reg strength human stuff per day) and so far, so good. Hereare acouple of suggestions we got, if only $$ weren't an issue.Do thorough baseline testing and start him on amitryptyline (available as a transdermal gel)to ease stress. Stress can make bodies do very strange things - it tends to raise the urine pH and then you get struvite.Have an ultrasound done to see if
 there are any stones or crystals in the bladder that could be causing the irritation to the lining. If yes, possible surgery.With really bad cases, there is a procedure where the urethra/penis is replaced by a larger diameter tube to help prevent blockage. Part of the problem with multiple blockages is the build-up of scar tissue.Hope that gives you some ideas to take to your vet and discuss:) I really recommend adding the glucosamine/chondroitin - it might help and it can't hurt.

 Cindy,
   I don't know if the Hills SD is comparable to the
 Royal Canin s/d, but the RC s/d is a temporary diet
 (3 wks ish) designed to lower the pH of the urine in
 order to dissolve the struvite crystals.  The Royal
 Canin s/o is designed to normalize the pH of urine;
 keep it in the neutral middle to prevent struvite
 (high pH) and/or oxalate (low pH).  Smoky's first
 episode (very bloody urine, no crystals, no
 bacteria) was in January of last year (2005) and he
 did very well with his diet about half s/o, half
 other (CA Natural, Eagle Pack).  Then the Tuesday
 before Thanksgiving, we had to go to the ER, again,
 no crystals and no bacteria, but enough blood to
 have the urine sample clot in the tube.  Symptoms
 again on December 8.  This time there was struvite
 and bacteria.  The first abx didn't work, so tried
 2nd, that did.  He was still on the medicine and
 diet for the dec 8 outbreak when symptoms popped up
 again on Dec 22.  no crystals and no bacteria. 
 You can see my eye twitching by this
  point, can't you.  My poor boy was miserable during
 those outbreaks and even though I was doing
 everything I could afford to do, I felt helpless. 
 He then was blocked on Feb 14 - another trip to the
 ER.  THAT was scary, he was so not himself.  So,
 diet is no longer half s/o, half other - it's
 completely s/o and we upped his
 glucosamine/chondroitin dosage (1 capsule of reg
 strength human stuff per day) and so far, so good.  

   Here are a couple of suggestions we got, if only
 $$ weren't an issue.

   Do thorough baseline testing and start him on
 amitryptyline (available as a transdermal gel) to
 ease stress.  Stress can make bodies do very strange
 things - it tends to raise the urine pH and then you
 get struvite.

   Have an ultrasound done to see if there are any
 stones or crystals in the bladder that could be
 causing the irritation to the lining.  If yes,
 possible surgery.

   With really bad cases, there is a procedure where
 the urethra/penis is replaced by a larger diameter
 tube to help prevent blockage.  Part of the problem
 with multiple blockages is the build-up of scar
 tissue.

   Hope that gives you some ideas to take to your vet
 and discuss:)  I really recommend adding the
 glucosamine/chondroitin - it might help and it can't
 hurt.

   Barb, I have a cat named Winston that has had the
 same
 type of urinary issues. What has your vet done for
 Smoky? I had to change Winston's food to Hills SD
 and
 we haven't had any problems since October. I didn't
 know if there was anything else I should be doing. I
 hope Smoky has a good checkup this week.

  Thank Tonya,
  I'm doing pretty well, just really really busy so
  I've been lurking for the most part. Smoky has a
  check-up this week for his urinary issues. He was
  blocked last month - he was a very unhappy boy:( 
  but that's what the emergency clinic is for and he
  saw the same vet as before and was remembered:)
 and
  his regular vet is awesome, so we're actually
 making
  some progress managing his issues with
 interstitial
  cystitis and also struvite crystals on occasion. 
  Bandit is his usual irrepressible self:) very
  sweet:)
  
  hope all is well with you and your crew!

  Hi all, it's been a rough week all over it seems. 
  This morning, my mom and stepdad had their kitty
  Tigger put to sleep. She was nearly 17 and had
 been
  with them since early-mid kittenhood. One night
  during a snowstorm, my stepdad had just closed the
  shop and was standing at the truck door when a
  little rub was felt on his ankle and tiny
 squeaking
  was heard. This little white and buff kitten with
  very noticeable injuries was at his feet. 
  Naturally, he scooped her up and brought her home.
 
  They called her Fart for quite a while - any of
 you
  who have rescued mal- and/or under-nourished kits
  know this well:) She was a very pretty kitty,
 small
  head and delicate facial features, tiny feet,
  long legs:) sort of built like a race horse. 
  She was an excellent hunter and lap-warmer. But
  those injuries had long-term effects. The soft
  tissue of her right wrist had completely worn out
  due to her limping from the old injury on her left
  shoulder/leg. She was flat footed on that paw.
  She also developed spinal arthritis, as another
  kitty of my mom's had. With that, it's only a
  matter of time before the nerves just don't work
 in
  the hind quarters. Mom had tremendous guilt about
  old Samantha; she'd waited far too long to help
 her.
  Tigger hadn't progressed nearly as far as Sam had,
  but she

  Here's some really good news! My little feleuk+ Daisy, whose 
  every cough and sneeze I've been agonizing over since DECEMBER is finally 
  URI-free, thanks to a couple of doses of immunoregulin (together with lots 
  of lysine). 
  That's something, finally, to cheer about!!Terri Brown
