Hi Emily, Your only option is NOT to put him to sleep.
As far as the thinness goes, you can learn to syringe feed him. Sometimes they pull through episodes of illness and sometimes not. I would have the brothers tested - but if they're going to be infected they likely already have been, since they have been together so long. Some people on this list mix + and -, and some don't. After testing, if they are negative, I'd definitely get them vaccinated against FELV, though. Have they ever been vaccinated against it before? There are lots of people here who know more about FELV than I do. I just wanted you to know someone's out here listening, someone cares, and you aren't alone. This is a great list, welcome.
