my unscientifix explanation is that they can be tested for felv at any age, but 
you won't know if that's a 'true' positive for at least 3 months of time. 3 
months that you KNOW they are not with any other exposed cat. I see it as 
impossible in the real world.  I wish the test had never even been invented.

i read--remember, i'm in the process of compiling an up-to-date list, so i read 
things, save the links, and will go back and actually organize them later, so i 
DON'T have the links right now--said that, because of what the test tests, the 
antigens instead of antibodies, kittens can be tested at any age.

if there's anyone who can explain this to those of us who are doing our best to 
be scientists when we really aren't, i know that i would appreciate it!

  Could someone remind me of the age when testing kittens for Felv is. I
have some 8 week old kittens, Miss'Tache, Gilbert, Perry, and Eeyore,
born to a feral queen, queen is untested. My rescue group wants to test
them real soon.

I also have former tom cat who has tested positive for Felv via a snap
test, he is in a different room from the kittens and from my cats. As of
right now he is not showing any symptoms. He is a sweetheart, I think he
is a dumped cat left to fend for himself.
