I like that -- Martini and Rossi. It's good that Martini gets to play with another kitty at least -- and torment the dogs, how good is that!! I'm sure others will chime in with experience and advice on your situation, but have you considered vaccinating your others? The stats are pretty good on that.

His buddy is Martini -- Martini & Rossi! I have 13 other cats in the house, and would never forgive myself if I somehow introduced the virus into the rest of the population. I do allow Martini to play with another cat (who is an outcast by his own choosing -- hates all other cats except Martini & Rossi), but supervised and with the food and water bowls and litter boxes put away. Also Martini likes to play with/tease the dogs! He is quite the character, and has a real mischievous/naughty streak. Thanks everyone for your kind words and thoughts about Rossi. We buried him in our yard, so he can stay close.
