sue, was casper ever double tested to make sure he was actually negative? a single negative test means no more than a single positive test does: unless we know for sure when the last possible date of exposure was, and do a final test 90-120 days after that, we cannot know that any cat is truly negative. this is how my cats all become exposed back in 2000--my housemate, the shelter director, brought in a beautiful little girl who'd tested negative. we didn't know to retest back then, and didn't. she became symptomatic less than a year later.
as far as i know, there are no cases of an actually negative cat (tested twice) who has been vaccinated ever becoming positive from living with positives. don't blame yourself for something that you probably DIDN'T do.
