Congratulations on the negative FeLV test results!  The supplement your vet 
recommended is lysine.  You can find it fairly inexpensive at health food 
stores and online, if not elsewhere.  Sometimes lysine can have additives that 
can cause Heinz body anemia in cats, so make sure you buy it in pure form.  
Keep us posted on your pregnant kitty and I'm so glad for her and her kittens 
that she is negative!

Morrison and Isobel are both FeLV NEGATIVE!  I was so happy when I found out!  
Those were the longest 10 minutes of my life (the time it takes for the test 
results).  They both got their FeLV vaccine.  At first they weren't going to 
give Isobel one because she's pregnant (the vet confirmed) but then they found 
their FeLV vaccine for pregnant kitties.  I spoke with my vet about a 
spay-abort and he said basically it was my choice, but that is something he 
does (for a much bigger price), but he said I should also consider no-kill 
shelters.  There's a shelter that brings cats who're up for adoption to my 
vet's office and they're on display in the lobby.  He told me to take the 
kittens there after they've been weened and seen by him and most likely they'd 
be adopted out sooner rather than later, and possibly even displayed in his 
office, and their kittens always go fast.  There's an adoption application and 
a donation fee, so as to make sure they're
being adopted into good homes who really want them.  I got the feeling from my 
vet that he's not too fond of doing spay-abortions.  He said if I do choose to 
do that, I need to do it within the next two weeks tops because he guesstimated 
that she's going to give birth within four weeks, give or take.  

As for Ash, he got his rabies vaccination and he's all set to get neutered on 
the 28th.  I discussed supplements for him and he recommended Lisine 
(spelling).  He said I can get it at most health food stores, or maybe even 
Walmart.  250 mgs a day.  I am going to look into other supplements as well.  I 
have names of some.  With the supplements and with periodic wellness visits, 
Ash should be fine for a while (I hope).
