Hi Amy. I didn't find out my boys were positive until they were in their
teens. The vet said they were likely "carriers" and since Squeaky was never
sick, the vet said his was likely in his bone marrow. Stripes was
symptomatic on and off. Stripes lived several more years (to age 16) and
Squeaky lived to age 22. 

Isabella tested positive almost 2 years ago and is the picture of health. 

Your boy could live a long life.

Keep your other kitties separate for at least 24 hours after they are
vaccinated (I can't recall if they should be separate until the booster in
30 days....does anyone know?).

Subject: [Felvtalk] Hello- new to the list.

Just wanted to say a quick hello to all the list members- i've just joined
upon learning this afternoon that my much adored 10 year old cat is
positive.  We're unsure as to how he contracted feluk as he was tested
before we adopted him, and the two cats we have adopted since then were both
tested... sigh.  We take the other two in tomorrow morning to be tested &
hopefully vaccinated, and then we'll bring my big boy home.  Hopefully he
will be with us for at least a few more months.  I've been scouring the
archives and can't express enough gratitude- there is so much wonderful
information & support here.  I look forward to being a part of this
community.  Amy
