Fabulous news for you and Minstrel! Happy dance! I cannot even imagine how 
light your heart feels today!!!
Do you mind sharing how old she was when she first tested negative; how old she 
is now and what test was used each time?
That is, if you can come down from your cloud long enough to read email!

  Just wanted to bring a positive note to you all.

  I took my FeLV girl Minstrel to the vet last week to check her mouth cos she 
was showing dental signs. I'd had her checked at New Year just before Buddy 
(FIV+) passed away and her gums were a little inflammed but not severe. Last 
Friday she had 3 wobbly teeth and red gums so she'd had root infection travel 
down. The vet said the pathology looked like what any cat can get and not 
specifically just related to FeLV. She had 5 teeth out on Tuesday and came home 
trying to get in the bag of cat biscuits bless her - but she is eating well 
soft food complete with antibiotics sprinkled over and some painkiller for 
couple of days. Anyway, whilst she was having pre-op bloods taken I asked them 
to re-check her FeLV status as I know occassionally cats can rid themselves of 
the virus and I just wanted to know either way. The vet phoned this morning 
whenthe blood results came back from the lab and Minstral is now FeLV negative 
:-) I didn't know whether to laugh or cry but I think I'll be opening the 
champagne tonight. I could now even consider introducing a new cat into the 
house (would obviously have to be FeLV - though but would mean Minstrel has 
company when I'm at work - and helping any cat is better than helping none. 
Need to book leave from work and consider carefully before that though - but 
what a nice surprise.

  hugs and good wishes to all your kitties xxx
