Thank you for responding.  I am going to concentrate on keeping Ash (and my 
other kitties) as healthy as possible.  I've been feeding them better food for 
months now...Eukenuba Naturals.  They really like it and it helps with their 
urine and feces (they don't smell as much!).  I keep their litter box clean at 
all times and they always have fresh, cold water.  I am very observant of them 
and I try to give them all the love possible.  I am just going to deal with 
this as it comes and treat Ash like a normal cat (like I've been doing his 
whole life) and keep on giving him all the love I can :)

I am sorry to hear about your Dixie :(  She's in kitty heaven now and nothing 
can hurt her :)

This is a hard one but remember that there is nothing certain in this world and 
do not obsess over the diagnosis.  Concentrate on the wonderful friends you 
have and enjoy your lives together.  Give all the cats the best food you can 
and give them the supplements that seem right to you.  If you have a 
holistic/alternative vet available, consider checking her out.  I had a little 
over three wonderful years with Dixie.  She wasn't sick until a few days before 
she left this world.  I hope you enjoy a lot more years than I had but I would 
never, ever give up one minute with Dixie Louise.......not for anything.  The 
time I had with this wonderful being was worth any price.
Listen to the members of this group.  They are great.
Good luck and all the blessings possible to you and all your little friends..

Hi everyone.  My name is Jennifer and I live in New Jersey.  My one year old 
male kitty, Ash, was just diagnosed with FeLV yesterday.  I also have two other 
cats, Morrison and Isobel, and they've been living with Ash for a year (I've 
had him since birth).  He's blind in one eye and has developmental problems in 
his back area, but other than the obvious (his illness), he's a very happy, 
content, sweet and playful boy!  Very talkative as well, especially in the 
morning!  He's all black with tiny white hairs throughout his coat that you 
need to really look to see.  He eats like a pig and right now, seems healthy.  
He's getting fixed in a month (that's the soonest my vet could get him in) and 
my other two cats are being tested for FeLV in two weeks and if they test 
negative (which I really hope is the case), they're getting vaccinated.  My 
oldest, Morrison, was supposedly vaccinated two years ago, but they have no 
record of it at my vet's office,
 though they told me he was vaccinated when I took him for his shots two years 

I am looking forward to chatting with you all and I really wish all the best 
for you and your kitties!

PS - can we share pictures of our cats on here?

- Jennifer (and Ash too!)
