Sam, I haven't checked my email for quite a while, as I am putting in hay for the horses (so sorry for the late answer). I am an animal nutritionist and physiologist and would be more than willing to speak with you over the phone about your kitties. That is much easier for me than email, as I don't get a chance to check it very often. I have had much success with multiple FeLV positive cats in the past.
Give me a call at 740-992-5782 after 9pm EST. After I get the specifics of your new kitty, I can give you several targeted suggestions that have worked very well for me over the years.
