34. Lost a kitty to feline leukemia...

...and that was one too many...especially this cat was on the shortlist to make World's 100 Coolest Cats.
Now when I adopt I have the vet check for fe-leuk and FIV before 'adopting' the little critter.
So far I've been lucky; everybody's come up negative and they all get the leukemia vaccine with their annual shots. Costs a bit more, but worth it.

I don't know what I'd do if I took a kitty in to get OK'd and it was positive for fe-leuk or FIV. Hope I'll never have to find out.
