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.

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 dead.

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.
