It is a fact that many kittens that test pos at 8 weeks will test neg.
at 16 weeks...
Some people say 6 months to be sure but from my personal experience the
test at 16 weeks is about 80% accurate....
A word about Jeni... She is very active in short term fostering and holding
kitties until she can get them in a no kill shelter... She is probably
for saving more kitties from PTS in one month than most of us are in a
She probably already has both pos and neg. kitties isolated from each other
in her home and what these kitties need is a home that has neither pos or
neg. as they can go either way in the next few weeks....
This might be a great opportunity for some people who have said that they
have worked with FeLV but currently don't have any to help out for just
while to see which way they go...
I believe these kitties are in the NYC, Long Island area.....

I'm sorry, I should have given a cite for this. My vet says testing
cats of less than 3 months is not recommended. I can't find anything
on the Internet to cooberate. Anyone hear of this before?

If they are 8-9 weeks old, SNAP tests are very inaccurate. I would
not even bother testing a kitten that age. They need to be retested
in 6 months to see if they are actually positive or not.

Just when I found placement for the adult feluk positive, now three kittens
need placement. The woman was going to take them to the vet to pts them, but I
told her I would take them and find a home for them. They are about 8-9 weeks
old and tested positive yesterday. Need help yet again. They are tabbys and
very cute. I am picking them up from the lady today, I don't know if they are
boys are or girls yet. I know they are a little scared, she found them in her
backyard. There are actually five, but I can't take all five. She might try to
find a home for the other two. Anyone out there want one, two or three kittens
to add to their home. Willing to travel, food included, will spay/neutered
