Correct me if I am wrong...But I believe FeLV IS contacted primarily
Maybe not urine and poop....
In saliva it dies as soon as it becomes dry, but what if it is in poop ???
Can that be carried on a shoe ???
The best defense against the disease is to keep cats healthy, well fed and happy...
No stress....I believe it is easy to contact but a cat has natural defenses against
the disease...The strength of these defenses is directly related to the condition
the cat is in....This pretty much holds true both before contact and after when
the cat tests positive...My vet says that he has seen many cats who he has seen
for the 1st time when on their death bed that test positive and are years old
and living with a number of other cats (unvaccinated on farms) and so far as he
knows none of the other cats have contacted it...(But maybe the farmer just
says this is the same thing and says the cat will die anyway and doesn't come to
One of the problems is that there are so many variables...health..time..and death
is a result of another disease....
