I know it's not scientifically proven, but I believe light positive means 
recent exposure.  Hopefully the cat will fight the virus and turn up negative 
within a couple of months.

  Wow, she's a light positive.  I don't know how old she is, but   I
have no doubt what I would do.  I'd leave the kit with her mom and
bubba, and retest at some point.  She's already with them, so they're
already exposed. Moving is stressful. Light Positive can mean that
the test results aren't correct and it needs to be redone; or that
she's been exposed to the virus and is mounting a defense against it,
or whatever.    If she was an adult I'd start interferon, but
probably not as a kitten.  I'm sure you'll get some other ideas too!

I really do not like the whole "light positive" thing.  It is confusing and 
difficult to understand - I still don't understand it and one of my foster 
kittens tested light pos a couple of years ago.  She turned out to be negative, 
though, so in that case we believe it was a bad test.
