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.

Subject: Greetings Again

> Greetings Again,
> I have not been very active here since the passing of my LeLV cat Elric
> Whiteybone. Since then I have been active in cat rescue.
> Recently I have lost another cat to this disease, he came to our back
> porch, and rubbed between my wifes legs. He was more than friendly, but
> he had a full mucus mustache on his face.
> He tested positive for LeLV but not FIV, the respiratory infection which
> was giving him his mucus mustache did not respond to any of the 5+
> antibiotics we used on him. We named him Gio short for Giovanni.
> With in two weeks the disease did it work on his body along with the
> respiratory infection. On a Saturday we took him to our Rescue Groups
> Veterinarian.
> We got there way early and were able to spend over an hour with him there.
> When the Veterinarian got there, she asked if this was our kitty or a
> rescue kitty. We responded he was a rescue kitty and that we were
> staying with him while his time came.
> So while the Veterinarian gave him the meds to ease his passing, my wife
> and I were holding and touching him. We both felt him relax then go
> totally limp. After a bit the Vet listened for his heart, and said he
> was gone.
> We spent another 15 minutes with him. Later the Vet came in and asked
> what we wanted to do with Gio's body. We replied that we already had
> place dug for him in our back yard by our porch and the catnip bush that
> grew nearby. She seemed taken a back that we were doing this for a
> rescue kitty. I believe she got her eyes opened about those that rescue
> cats/kitties.
> We took him home and placed him in the spot we prepared for him.
> We have been putting food out of the strays in our neighborhood, getting
> them snipped and returned.
> We recently heard a sound while we were eating breakfast coming from our
> back patio. It sounded like two male cats squaring off to fight. When we
> looked it was a single domestic short haired Gray male cat.
> We named him Gus as in Grumpy Gus. He was at first a bit shy, but later
> became much easier to handle. We spoke to our rescue group about him,
> offered to foster him, they said they would pay for his testing and
> snipping if we fostered him.
> Well the news from the testing was not good, it was the SNAP test and by
> that test he was positive for LeLV. We have him in a separate bedroom
> where he gets his love and food.
> I am wondering if any here have any experience with the various immune
> system enhancing drugs/compounds.
> I want to boost his immune system so he has a chance to throw off the
> infection prior to his next series of tests. As of right now he has no
> symptoms of any disease.
