Thank you for telling about Armond.  I guess that answers my question - they 
can be infected even with the vaccination.  That is too much risk for me and my 
original cats.  If one of them got sick I would feel horrible!
 I don't want to get another FeLV+ cat, it seems like that would just double 
the trouble, and both of them in this small room.  The best I can do is make 
this as    a place as possible for him.  I already have one of those donuts 
with a ball inside, a soft square he can hide in and various other cat toys.  I 
think I will replace the chair by the window with a cat condo.  Any suggestions 
for making room sweet room a fun place for Buzz to be?  The floor is carpeted, 
so things that roll across the floor don't work.

  I absolutely understand about you wanting Buzz to be with the others.  It is 
so tough to have them separated.  We brought in a stray a year ago and did not 
have her tested (but we did have her vaccinated).  Anyway, she was positive and 
exposed our others.  Armond caught the virus but my other cat did not.  All of 
my animals were always vaccinated.  Based on my experience, I would not mix 
them.  I have had Armond since he was 4 weeks old, he has had all of his shots 
and he still tested positive from being with the other positive cat.  
  We just adopted another FeLV positive cat so Armond could have a friend and 
we had a special house built for them.  It works out great.
