Susan, I'm sorry to read that Autumn is ill again. I agree with Marylyn that changing or removing shoes are way better options than Lysol use.
Does your vet know about ImmunoRegulin? It is a fairly inexpensive treatment that has had helpful results for some FeLV+ cats. It is not a cure, but it may help. Interferon alpha is another good option, which I think you may have already checked out. You might search the list archives for info on ImmunoRegulin. While you're searching, you might also look for references to fever. I know some people have had luck controlling their cats' fevers with medication. Keep up with the NutriCal and Pedialyte, which are good options. Give her anything she wants to eat (which you probably already do). You and Autumn are in my prayers.
