Beth, I remember Will, and I'm so sorry he had to go to the Bridge. Hugs to you.

I tested everyone Elisa and IFA initially, did a follow-up IFA several months later, and vaccinated the negatives. My plan was only to retest if a negative became sick, and this was supported by my vet. The chance that a healthy, adult, vaccinated negative will pick up the disease is small, so I felt the funds were better spent on other problems (2 of my negs have severe allergies). I haven't told the list yet, as I just got functioning Internet service again today , but I had to help my sweet positive boy leave this world on November 13th. I haven't been active on the list for some time now, but some folks here may remember Will Feral. Lymphoma finally got him, after 3.5 active, happy years. He is so terribly missed. I plan to test my 4 negatives as soon as finances permit, so that I can comfortably discontinue vaccinating them for FeLV.
