On Feb 26th (a Sunday) my cat Gary that has FeLV was hiding in a closet we were going to take him back to Auburn University the next day for blood transfusions and to admit him for what we knew was his last chance...I heard a cat meowing and couldn't find Gary. Despite being anemic he had made his way downstairs and jumped into the front window, he was staring at a pretty girl kitty that was outside in the window meowing back. She stayed around and we took Gary to Auburn the next day....after 2 transfusions he began to take on fluid in his chest cavity and had issues with his blood pressure, I was there every day with him at the hospital by his side but he passed away that Friday the 3rd.....The girl cat never left our house. Our subdivision doesn't have strays. I have listed the cat on all the lost/found sites. I have been feeding her and even though we are in Alabama the past week it has been so cold I bought her a bed that has a cover she can crawl into. ( she refuses to go into the garage if I leave it cracked)
I took her to the vet today, she let me pick her up. She loved all on me purring and didn't mind me putting her into a carrier. She didn't even meow or mind the car ride. At the vet she was very calm and walked all around the room while waiting rubbing against me and jumping in my lap. She was scanned but doesn't have a chip. She tested neg for FeLV/FIV. I got her updated on all vaccines and dewormed and got her on flea prevention. (even though she didn't have a single flea) They shaved her belly a little to check for a tattoo or scar but she isn't spayed. They felt and said they may have felt lumps so there is a possibility she is pregnant but would be very early so hard to tell right now. She only growled when the tech held her down but didn't try to bite or scratch. We said we would never have another cat after Gary....but it seems that cats choose you...you don't choose them. With that being said I would hate for this to be someone's cat and my children get attached only to lose the cat so close to losing Gary....not sure what to do!
