If you keep these (probably positive)kittens it just means other kittens will 
die in their places.  I would abort as soon as possible.

Hi Jennifer,
 
Even if FeLV were not a factor in this possible pregnancy I would suggest a
spay-abort. The kitten season has been particulary bad this summer in Jersey
(and probably elsewhere) so if you can't keep them they would have a VERY
bleak future.  I live in central Jersey and if you're not too far from Toms
River (don't know how far south you are) you can take her to a clinic there
that does low cost S/N.  We take all the ferals we can TNR there, and they have
no problem doing spay-aborts.  
 
You actually have to go through ABC (Animal Birth Control) which is a group
based in Bayville (I believe) NJ, they will give you a voucher or number that
will entitle you to a low cost S/N.  If you would like I can get the
information for you, my neighbor has it since she does TNR daily this time of
year.  I help out financially when I can since I work during the day (she
doesn't work, cept for sterilizing cat colonies for people).

and the only possible father is my FeLV+ kitty, Ash.  Isobel is showing signs
of pregnancy (hard and protruding tummy as well as pointy nipples).  She's
going this Thursday to get tested for FeLV.  My question is, if she tests
negative (which my guess is she won't being that her and Ash mated), will
the kittens be FeLV+ because their father is FeLV+?  Also, if Isobel is
pregnant and she is FeLV+, does that automatically mean the kittens will be
too?  I feel so horrible about not getting her fixed sooner, but my money is
tight and I have to save up just to take them to the vet.  If she is pregnant,
I can't keep the kittens as we already have three and my boyfriend is
allergic and says no way to any more cats in the house, which I understand. 
If
I take them to a shelter and they're positive, won't they put them to
sleep right away?  I don't want that to happen.  I live in Southern New
Jersey...anyone want more kittens??  When I take her to the
vet this week, I'll have them confirm her pregnancy.
