Thanks :)  I really hope my other test negative, but if they don't, I will love 
them just the same.

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.

Welcome to the list.  I hope your original cats test negative, but it sounds 
like Ash is in good shape.  If he's made it over a year his chances of getting 
sick are much less!  tonya

        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 ago.  

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!)
