I've already got him on a food supplement vetiq nutrivet. High in calories and minerals
Doesn't seem. To be working

Isnt felv a death sentence
He's not been bit or gone outside ever
He's lost over a kilo since dec

Nothing has changed still eats grooms
I'm. So worried as to what it could be

They seem to have ruled out some issues at least for now. No FeLv is not an automatic dead sentence, but the problem is Bruce is in a very weakened state. That could be very very difficult for a cat with FeLv. Hopefully the scan next Tuesday will answer some questions, but as of now it is impossible to say what is going on with him.

Is he frail due to age or his cat flu

He's battled it all. His life
His stomatitis is in remission
Is eye looks awful
I've nursed him for years
I don't want to lose him
Over the years many vets suggested euthanasia

I can't bare that
But the continuing weight loss worries me

I know you don't want to lose Bruce. None of ever want to lose our babies.
They have done a lot tests and will do more on next week
You have done your very best to take care of him over the years.
There maybe nothing that the vets can do to improve his quality of life now.
It is very hard to make the decision to euthanize them, but often it is the only kindness we can give them.
See what information they give you next week and go from there.
I am hoping for the best for you and Bruce at your next vet appointment.

I am so sorry to read this. You absolutely do as much as you can for your cats and fight on when they are ill. I hope that you can be comforted by the memory of Bruce and by all that you did to give him a wonderful life with someone who loved him.

My heartfelt sympathies go out to you on the passing of Bruce. :hugs: You were on top of his health and tried your best to comfort him in his time of need. We will be thinking of you and your sweet boy.:angel:

This absolutely has to do with the fact that you did get these cats at the same time and ages. There is nothing wrong with that and they are lucky to have had a home with you. You have done your best to advocate for them and the fact that they have very close ages is out of your control.

This happened to me several years ago when I suddenly realized that every cat I owned was going to get old and sick at the same time.

Yes that's exactly what's happened
After felix goes the only old boy Il have will be Toby and he's had many issues with prolapsed rectums
Atm he seems in good health, touch wood, but I know at the drop of the hat anything can happen

I love my cats and it's absolutely heartbreaking when they pass

I got 9 around same age
Toby is 14 and a, half

I have 3 years old trudy but she has Megacolon like toby and it's a constant worry
