If she is looking for a place to take them for life, C>W> RUSTIC HOLLOW is a no 
kill shelter and takes felv positive cats.  That is where I plan to send my 
babies when I pass on.
It cost $$, but I am assured they will not be ut to sleep, just kept for the 
rest of their lives.

A few days back you had inquired about FeLV rescues and 
sanctuaries....   When I got my FeLV boys I searched the Web for just 
such resources...not to transfer them but to be prepared with places 
they might go in the even something happened to me AND , specifically, 
to call them and ask their advice about how to care for my boys ( this 
was before I found this list)... I wanted to talk to people who spent a 
lot of time with multiple FeLV cats....   Found that some folks were 
just nice folks that were providing homes and other were pretty well 
funded and set up with good PR...active boards and had a decent track 
record of adoption....   I'm very sorry that I don't have the contacts 
right now....  I put them on my PC somewhere and now don't know 
precisely where but... a couple of google searches with FeLV Rescue FeLV 
Sanctuary....FelV adoption as the search terms and you will turn up 
quite a few....   Off hand I recall
Blind Cat Rescue and Merrimack River ( in Mass) as two 
possibilities....  The name's Aslan and Seer Farms also stick in my 
mind.... but I can't be more specific than that at the moment....   FEW 
I imagine are going to immediately welcome new additions but it's always 
been my experience that if you get to know people at one place....they 
know people at another place....etc...etc and sooner or later you hit on 
someone that can offer assistance......   BTW....  I'm absolutely with 
Amani on this one.....    If your other cats are no longer kittens...( 
say 1.5 years and up) I'd vaccinate them and let your other little love 
join them....  I have yet to hear of FeLV being passed from Kitten to 
Adult....   I'd worry a LOT in reverse and would not put a very young 
negative cat in with FeLV positive adults.. But..as always...it's what 
YOU are comfortable with.....   I just know that some cats really do a 
LOT better with company... my remaining boy ( I lost one of my guys just 
a short while ago after a brief life of constant illness) is VERY 
affiliative and I ended up adopting him BECAUSE I could see that he was 
dying to be with company.... Other cats... not so much... Your guy sound 
much like my own remaining guy and I'd really be inclined to let him 
have he company.....
