How ridiculous!!! I have seen MANY felv+ thrive and live a pretty good life.I 
am so glad that Dr. Jen gives them ALL a chance no matter what. :)

than our own,
Live within a fragile circle,easily and often breached.
Unable to accept its awful gaps.
We still would have it no other way"

I just saw an article at which I was surprised and disappointed 

The author includes "What happens to a cat who has contracted the virus?"

and says "The virus adversely affects the cat’s bone marrow and immune system. 
An infected cat becomes anemic and is unable to 
fight off even routine infections. Cats with feline leukemia are commonly 
jaundiced and lethargic, and they experience weight 
loss, enlarged lymph nodes, and poor stamina."

It sounds like an FELV cat is going to die immediately after getting the 
virus.  So I can see folks reading that article and then 
euthing their FELV kitties, thinking they're doing them a favor. The 5 FELV 
cats that I have now haven't seen any sickness since 
I've had them.
