Laurie, I don't know for sure about the isolation requirements. As a precaution, I kept my positives separate from my negatives until after the negative had received the 30 day booster. That was a yr ago and all are still doing fine.
Amy, to build on what others have already written, enjoy each day with your big boy. Over the last yr I have rescued 6 positive kittens from a dumpster colony. I lost one in Jan. but the other 5 are doing great and are a joy to be with. Having had CRF and heart kitties I learned to treasure each day I have with my beloved companions. We do what we can with the available resources to help these sweet companions have a full and meaningful life. Love is first on the list of what these babies need. My oldest positives are 1 1/2 yrs old. The babies are 8 months old. Love and enjoy him.
