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.
Sharyl
