Hello all!

Its been a long time since I have updated! About 6 months i would say! Almost a year ago I found two little kittens around 2 weeks of age and took them in. They both grew up beautifully and are the sweetest cats I have ever known. The male (Cosmo), just the most AFFECTIONATE cat ever. Would rub up in your face for hours if you let him. And Ashley (the female) so smart she even plays fetch! Sadly this past week Cosmo started to deteriorate. He was losing a lot of weight and refused to eat. We took him to the vet and decided to put him down because we don't have enough money to do anything. The vet said he maybe had a day left to live so chances are we would have lost the fought anyways...we don't even have the money to get his ashes back. We are very deeply saddened to have lost of of the best cats that ever lived! The vet said it was due to FeLV or FIV. The vet has a lot of experience with it so pretty much could tell by looking at him. We miss our cat very very much, but we still have his sister. I know this illness is very contageous and these babies were raised together and used all the same things. I have been trying to talk my parents into getting Ashley tested for the viruses but I can't seem to get through to them. I no longer live at the house but I raised these babies and they are just as important to me. What should I do? Should I bother getting her tested? If the test comes back positive...I just dont know what to do...I really don't want to lose the other cat! They're our babies...if you would like to see pictures, theres one of each of them under my profile. Thank you

RIP Cosmo August 2008- May 30th 2009.

Welcome back James, I remember your story.

Sadly, these things happen even in the best of circumstances.

I'm sorry to hear Cosmo took a turn for the worse.

It would be a good idea to get Ashley tested. that way you can take preventative steps in case she turns out to be positive as well.
