and by this time, the other two have been well exposed, and it''s sort of a moot point--the odds are very high that they'll be negative, and if not, will it make a huge difference, other than in the way you treat them medically? will you love them differently? i doubt that you will--it'll just give you information on what things to look for.
FeLV+ cats are just cats, until and if the virus is activated. good food, good love, as stressfree an environment as possible--these are the things we know of that can help keep that from happening. look into the supplements that are well researched and documented, FeLVs get sick just as normal cats do, and get treated and get well, without it always having to have to be related to the FeLV--just breathe, and learn, and enjoy every minute you have with all of them: no living thing comes with a guarantee, after all.
