My stats to begin with. 11 cats
1 turned up positive and I kept her.  She lived to 7 or 8.
1 positive is probably 10 by now and is fine and dandy.
I'm down to 4 cats now.  I've lost more cats to old age reanal disease.

All I can do is give you my stats.

6 positives in the house; 3 died before they were 1; 2 thriving at age 2, 1 
thriving at age 1.
2 positives in the dumpster colony I TNR'd; both still thriving at age 2.

Sissy, one of my house 2 y/o, has always had swollen lymph glands. Rocket, her 
sister, does not have any symptoms.

I've lost cats to CRF, heart disease and a dog attack in addition to FeLV.   I 
learned to treasure each day we have together.  Worrying about the future 
doesn't help me or the cats.

Hug your kitty for me
