Respectfully, I disagree.
Quoting from this article, http://www.castawaycritters.org/info/display.php?PageID=157 "Some caretakers believe that placing cats that initially test positive for either FIV, FeLV or both, together is a viable option. It is important to keep in mind that the cats may be in the process of fighting off a virus. If one makes the decision to test, it is important to follow the AAFP testing guidelines and re-test. Even if a cat happens to be FIV+, Neighborhood Cats founder Bryan Kortis says "An FIV cat especially should not be around FeLVs, because an FIV cat could lead a very long life around other, non-FIV cats. But putting them around FeLV positives means they'll catch that virus too, being immune-compromised, and die early."" *** And vaccinating already immune compromised cats? Hmm, it doesn't seem like such a good idea. We must do what is morally and ethically right, rather than what is easy. > From: twelvehousec...@gmail.com > Date: Sun, 27 Sep 2009 13:30:06 -0400 > To: rchestert...@verizon.net > CC: firstname.lastname@example.org > Subject: Re: [Felvtalk] PA Sanctuary > > fyi, there is no evidence that FIVs are any less able to throw off FeLV than > are other cats--in fact, FIVs tend to be the healthiest populations in all > sanctuary settings. > > while it might not be the optimum arrangement, until there are more places > who are willing to take positive of both sorts in, it beats the alternative > of just killing one or the other group. > > i don't know if best little cat house vaccinates their FIVs against FeLV, > but if they do, that makes problems almost non-existent. > > > > -- > Spay & Neuter Your Neighbors! > Maybe That'll Make The Difference.... > > MaryChristine > Special-Needs Coordinator, Purebred Cat Breed Rescue (www.purebredcats.org) > Member, SCAT (Special-Cat Action Team) > _______________________________________________ > Felvtalk mailing list > Felvtalk@felineleukemia.org > http://felineleukemia.org/mailman/listinfo/felvtalk_felineleukemia.org _________________________________________________________________ Lauren found her dream laptop.
