I'm so sorry, Natasha. I've had several double positives, and they have lived normal lives for a while, but getting sick with anything was taxing on them. I don't have any double positives right now...I think the first one I had was Mr. Black Kitty back in 2002 or 3, and I'm so glad I took him in.
But I'd sure wait and see before assuming that your kitty has FELV also. The other thing - I think vets don't see healthy FIV and FELV cats as much as they see sick ones - makes sense. So they think of them as sick, when actually they can have some good healthy years.
