First things first: Bill came through his surgery just fine. The vet just did the left knee because he didn’t think the right one needed it. Bill will go home this afternoon and then has to be confined for six weeks so his leg can heal properly.
Now everyone send prayers and thoughts to Ann, because I swear it’s worse to be nurse than the patient in these cases!
Robyn…I know you have a lot of experience with testing of FeLV with your fosters…I found a kitty in our garden (eating twigs and leaves last week) she was quickly moved into the laundry room(away from our other 2 cats) and is doing well, resting playing, being affectionate. Today she was micro-chipped and received shots and the testing for FeLV came back as a “slight positive” (from our local Humane Society). From your experience have you seen any of your fosters with that result and at a later date (with other testing) come back as a negative? I plan to take her to the vet in a couple of weeks for secondary testing.
Any insight you can provide, from your personal experience, would be greatly appreciated.
I have actually not had any of my fosters come back positive for FeLV, but I’ve heard of people who’ve had cats initially test positive for FeLV and then ultimately come back negative. (Amy, wasn’t Tabitha FeLV positive at first?) Anyone who’s had experience, please share in the comments!

Apparently the ducks have a whole routine in the afternoon. When they hear Fred come into the back forty, they waddle up to the front where the coop is, and then they accompany him to the pond, where he tosses scratch in the water, and they eat it. Spoiled rotten ducks, is what they are.
But chickens are, perhaps, not the brainiest animals in the barn yard. As they’re running around with food in their mouth, they are also screaming “I HAVE FOOD I HAVE FOOD THERE IS FOOD IN MY MOUTH AND I AM GOING TO GO RIGHT OVER HERE AND EAT IT! THIS FOOD! THAT IS IN MY MOUTH!”
