Dear Sandra,


My Kitty (his name) has FELV, we got him when he was 7 months from students. He 
was diagnosed with Felv when he was not quite two, he is now 8 1/2 and the felv 
has been kept at bay with the Prednisone.  I also worried about my other cat 
Simba being exposed to him, because they would played and sleep together and 
this was long before we knew Kitty had the Felv.  It has been 6 1/2 years now 
and Simba has been tested and no sign of Felv. Both have always been indoor

> My cat (Stella) is an indoor cat, 7 years old. and has had all of her

> Is there any way they can live together with Penny being FeLV positive?
> any insight or links to relevant websites/postings would be greatly
