Hi Lisa - In my opinion you are doing the right thing.  I have 7 cats; one, 
who I adopted in July 2007 at about age 5, is positive.  My other cats are 
all adults.  I discussed thoroughly with my vet, who said the vaccine is 
more than 90% effecttive and that it is very unlikely my healthy adult cats 
would be affected.  So, a year and four months later--all are healthy.  The 
positive cat has no symptoms, other than being deaf (which may or may not be 
caused by the leukemia).  I am very glad that I did what I did.  Mandy (the 
positive kitty) is the most wonderful, loving kitty I have ever had.
