Thank you all for the information. I was really worried about it. I can now put 
it to rest. The kitty is doing well though he's hiding under a chair and only 
comes out to eat and drink. Of course, he's using his cat box. He is so cute 
and purrs when we scratch under his chin even though he is frightened. We do 
have a large crate but decided to leave the door open so he can come and go as 
he pleases. He is secure in the bedroom and we are careful when we open the 
door.?We have named him Tipper. I can't thank you enough for your help. You 
guys are really amazing and I admire your dedication to cats everywhere. Keep 
up the good work.

Sincerely, Kathryn

Hi, Kathryn -

It's never silly when the safety of our kitties is involved. ;-) 

Although FeLV virus is now thought to be able to exist *somewhat* longer in
the air than first thought -- "first thought" was in terms of seconds rather
than minutes. So even if it can exist "longer," we're still talking no more
than hours. There should be no danger to your kitten from being in the room
where Smokey was. Time and any routine cleaning have rendered the virus long

Hi, everyone:

I have an odd question. How easy is it for my new kitten to get feline
leukemia.? Is it only transmitted through other cats or can it be
transmitted through something the sick?kitty touched? It's been a year since
we?lost Smokey.?I'm?probably being silly, but the kitten is in the same room
that Smokey was in.?We have given him the vaccine for the virus.

Thanks for any information,

Classic hyper-t symptoms:?
> No diarrhea or vomiting that I've seen. He just seems hungry all the time
and follows me around crying at me. We did some tests yesterday and are
waiting for results. this is exactly how Fred was and he was very early
hyper-t. Only found with the tfree4 test.?
