Join the yahoo group  feline assisted feeding. GREAT INFO there re importance 
of eating and helping them eat.
Important to get nutrition in him immediately.
Start with AD which is easily syringed and high calories.
I would keep him separate from your other kitties for now...

  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 

  This is a great list, welcome.

    Hi there 

    My name is Emily and I have three cats, Moses (Felv +) Jeremiah and Samson 
(status yet unknown).

    I just found out that Moses is + and he's quite sick. the doctor put him on 
prednesone and doxycline... 

    He's not eating and he's quite thin.

    The dr wants to put him to sleep. Is this really my only option? Also - if 
i bring him home to be with his brothers... will he infect them? Should i have 
them tested? 

    I'm so sad. 

    Any help would be greatly appreciated... 

    THank you thank you thank you...
