Our second cat has died. Both had feline leukemia. The vet said that virus is common in "barn cats". Our first cat died a couple of years ago, shortly after DH brought home a kitten from the country. It was the "runt" but thrived at our home. We fell in love with both cats, but they each only lived about 3 years. It hurts so bad to lose a pet. They both had a wonderful life with us, but it HURTS SO BAD RIGHT NOW. I know many of you know what I am talking about. I remember writing about the first cat when he died, and wanted to do the same for this one. RIP, Buddy.

I had a leukemia cat that lived for 9 years, but it was a struggle. I had to isolate him from all other cats. He just loved my dad's cat, and once he was diagnosed, I could no longer take him to my parents' house. There is a vaccine for feline Leukemia, but they have to be tested first to see if they didn't get it from birth. So sorry for your loss. It's always heart wrenching to lose a fur baby.
