I know I should know better than to have a panic attack about this,
but I'm really close to having a panic attack about this. I awoke
quite early this morning to discover that two of our negs had managed
to get into my bedroom with my pos. Some of the cat sounds (primarily
scratching on the cat tree) sounded different, because they were
coming from a bigger cat, but it didn't register until I got up. My
pos, while growly, wasn't acting too wound up. I'm proud of her.
I'm concerned because, of course, not only is my pos in here but her
food dish and litter box. Also, I don't know what was going on or how
long the cats had been in here with us. I have good reason to believe
that one of the cats is resistant to the virus, but the younger cat, a
two year old, I'm not so sure about. She got the first round of FeLV+
vax when she was young, but those vax haven't been refreshed, as we
never anticipated these sorts of run-ins.
So, does anyone have thoughts on any treatment I should start? How
long should I wait to have her tested? It looks like
felineleukemia.org recommends 90 days? I realize that there's a
possibility that this particular neg didn't come into any real contact
with the virus, and if she did, that there's a decent chance she'll
fight it off. However, since this cat is not mine but is the love of
my mom's life, I'm crawling out of my skin right now.
