The topic: Handsome’s not doing well


He’s downright skinny.  He doesn’t beg for food like he used to.  He still eats, but doesn’t have that ravenous appetite any more.  He’s not throwing up as much, but maybe that’s because he’s not eating as much.

He does seem to be sleeping more, and more soundly, but that might just be wishful thinking on my part. 

I knew he had a disease when he came to live with us, one that would most likely shorten his life span.  He’s had a good life while he’s been here and I would hope he has more years with us, but FIV can do a number on the body.  I’ll keep an eye on him and keep giving him yummy food and maybe this will just turn out to be a bump in the road and not the final downhill slide.

Keep some good thoughts for this old guy.  He’s a great cat and deserves better than he’s gotten.

Have a friend that has a furry baby with FIV, she has lived way past the time the docs gave her.  Like Handsome she is so skinny, but still loves to be loved, seems very happy and content.  Will send some hugs and love to Handsome and to you for all you do!!

He does seem like a great cat. I hate to think what would have come of him if he didn’t find you. You’ve done so much moer for him where others would have given up and most likely did.
Prayers and hugs to you both.

I love the pictures you post of him. He is one of my favorite ‘net cats.
Sending him lots of good thoughts, gentle hugs and prayers.

He is such a lovely boy!  Many caring thoughts and prayers for both of you!  Please give him a hug and a headbump from me.
