Feline and Flower Friday Kat and family have a request

Thanks Comedy Plus for hosting

Thanks LLB Gang for hosting

Dearest Aunty HiC and Bloggy Friends

Mom and Dad took little Brudder Rocky to the vet Wednesday, May 13
Unfortunately we got some very unexpected and sad news:

 Sweet Rocky tested “weak positive” for Feline leukemia. 
After careful consideration, and with guidance from our vet, Rocky will stay isolated from Pup and (especially) me for 4 weeks, and be retested.  
We know this story will probably not have a happy ending, but Mom has felt so helpless with all the sadness in the world, she has to give Rocky a chance. 
Rocky is a happy, playful, loving kitty, and he’s going to have the best 4 weeks of his life. 😻

He likes to sleep on shelf in mud room, but his bed kept slipping off. Dad fixed him up! ❤️
As you can see from this video Rocky is a happy little guy.  He has for sure learned all about 
unconditional love of a family.

I, Kat, Mom, Dad, and Pup thank you for your kind welcoming to Rocky on Monday
We certainly would appreciate 🙏🙏prayers and positive thoughts.

❤️ Kat Your Feline Nephew 

Dearest Nephew...
I am so very very sorry to hear this news about Rocky.
You know how very dear your Mom and Dad and you and Pup are to me and Dad of Angel Madi;
We will keep Rocky and all of you in our purrs.
Please keep us posted on how Rocky is doing.
With love and admiration your Aunty HiC

In case you missed seeing Rocky on Monday,

Here is a photo of sweet Rocky being held by mom and sitting on the deck rail surrounded by gorgeous flowers too


  1. we send lots of potp and we hope for the best... such sad news.... but maybe a little miracle will happen...

  2. Rocky is such a handsome dude! We hope he hangs in there. Our human doesn't know much about the subject - but there are so many resources in the cat blogging community. I'm going to e-mail you one such discussion.

  3. Awww, we're so sorry to hear that about Rocky. Sending purrs.

  4. I am sorry to hear such sad news. As it was a weak positive and he is young it could be he has a regressive infection which would give hope. Or it could be a false positive reading hence the retesting a month later.
    I send my very best wishes for good news for Rocky.

  5. We send you tons of AireZen and positive vibes, Rocky. You are such a handsome kitty!

  6. Rocky is adorable and looks so peaceful in that wee video. We send him and his new family loads of love and virtual hugs from Scotland.
    Toodle pip!

    POTP x 87 from my place to Rocky!!! Hugs and whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx

  8. I know your Mom will do all she can for you Rocky. Prayers are sent.

  9. Oh dear. We sure hope things go well for Rocky, but all you can do is give him your best for the next month. Very sad.

  10. So sad. Like the Weim Boys' Mama I will hope for a little miracle. Sending prayers.

  11. sad news this is. prayers for Rocky and all of the family.. he sure has the purrfect spot for convalescing.

  12. Sending tons of prayers for Rocky. So sad.

    Thank you for joining the Feline Friday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Feline Friday and weekend. Big hug to Auntie Cecilia. ♥

  13. Non-stop purrs and prayers for dear sweet Rocky from all of us too.

  14. dood..we gived ewe a 984 pawz UP on yur moovee; haz asked St Francis two help ewe thru thiz, we hope de next test sayz ewe iz aye oh kay sooper grate good N ya loves for 785 yeerz :) ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

  15. What a sweet kitty! Hope he does well! He sure looks comfy on his beautiful bed!

  16. awww our thoughts and prayers are with you and Rocky...may he get better while peaceably resting . Such a sweet orange kitty.

  17. I will be praying it is a false positive. As long as you are vaccinated against it, you can be together.

  18. That is sad news...but if his life is to be short, he's in the right place with lots of love.

  19. We are so sad to hear about Rocky. We don't know much about feline leukemia, but we hope the vet will be able to help him. Lots of POTP headed his way.

    Woos, Lightning and Timber

  20. We are also sad to hear that Rocky is sick, and we are sending lots of POTP his way. We know KAt's pawrents are going to shower him with all the love and affection he can stand!
    Rosy, Jakey & Arty

  21. We have our paws crossed for Rocky and hope he has a happy ending.

  22. I'm so sorry for this news. From what I've read though, even with a positive result, as long as he's otherwise healthy, it doesn't have to be a bad ending.

  23. We are sending purrayers and POTP to sweet Rocky. But we have had feleuk cats live with us and they lived long happy lives and the other cats did too. It is not as big a threat as was first believed, and not a death sentence. And Rocky cannot infect Pup no matter what !

  24. Oh no. How heartbreaking. We are sending you lots of prayers. Hopefully you will get a miracle. If not then Rocky will become part of Maddie's family at the Bridge.

  25. What a sad diagnosis for sweet Rocky but as others above have said - feline leuk kitties can live long and very happy lives - we hope he will - don't give up on him as it's not something Pup can get. Hoping for the BEST !

    Love, Teddy

    1. Great news about good possibility of long and happy life. Also that if Pup and Kat are vaccinated they can be a family!

  26. We're sending purrs and prayers to Rocky. We loved hearing his purr.

    The Florida Furkids

  27. We're bundling up all the purrs and purrayers we can and sending them your way too.


Please leave a meow or bark for Angel Madi...her assistant (aka Mom) will respond in a timely fashion. =^..^=
