Claire I too am more concerned about the panting as is a sign of anemia which these cats are prone to getting and can kill them. If your cat does have anemia make sure she is is checked for haemobart which is treatable. It will not always show up when they test so most choose to treat for even if the test is negative.
http://www.peteducation.com/article.cfm?c=1+1316&aid=292 Junior was panting on his last day. He had fought a long hard fight and was not up for heroic treatment. His spirit is free and I stay on the group to offer help when I feel I may have something to add. This group is the reason he was not euthanized when first diagnosed. He lived about 1.5 years and was 5 when he left me. Tiny is half brother unfortunately only lived a couple months he too was 5 when he passed on. Junior also had eye problems but was due to an injury prior to the FELv dx. He went on to develop a corneal ulcer and glaucoma. He was already blind in that eye.
