Where is this list???

Really I am so happy to be a member of this list. It is so emotional when
you have a sick kitty or worse yet lose your love one. I at least know I am
doing the best I can with Junior because I joined this list. I am one of
those people who if the vet told me I had to put him down from the get go
I probably would have done it. Let me explain, I was already in such an
emotional state because I missed that Pumpkin was sick and lost him. He was
never tested but I assure you from his symptoms the outcome would have been
that he was positive.

Now Lionel came to live with me the same day as Pumpkin about 8 months
before all this transpired. His testing showed FIV and FELV. I do think he
probably contracted the FELV after he came to live here. I am sure based on
his condition when he joined my household that he was already
immunocompromised. But we were able to heal his wound and get rid of his eye
infection without antibiotics. See at that time I could not get into see my
vet because he was short staffed.

Uh where am I going. Not sure. I did wind up PTS Lionel because after the DX
i was not sure where I was to keep 3 sick kitties and 8 negative kitties. I
should day 2 FELV cats, one FELV/FIV cat and 7 negative cats. I have a small
place. Like I said emotional issues. One does not always make the right
decision. This group has helped guide me since I joined.

I miss the ones who left, but the new folks also bring new perspectives.

Thanks

Sally

   The person who is running the shelter is a veterinarian who is very
   well regarded in the rescue world.  I guess that a veterinarian
   *could* be uninformed, but I find it hard to believe that someone who
   spent a great deal of her own time and money working to place homeless
   animals *would* be uninformed.

Please can we all work together? The kitties come first, imho. We need the 
benefit of everyone's wisdom, if you are willing.
