Ditto on testing for feleuk.  Generally if you wait 2-3 months and retest there 
is a good chance the result will be negative for feleuk.  Have seen it happen 
several times.

are testing young kittens for FIV there is a good chance of a false positive 
from antibodies in their mother's milk if she was positive. This usually 
clears away by 4 to 6 months so, testing kittens for FIV before that doesn't 
give a true indication.
