One of my rescues has uneven pupils, and he is negative for FelV and FIV. He had an injury to his head when I found him, and the vet thinks it caused him to go blind in one eye. He's fine otherwise. I've had him for over a year now and he's turned into a real head bonker.
I don't think (but not sure) uneven pupils are caused from FelV, but the breathing problem could be caused from anemia, a common thing with FelV cats.
