This did not hold true in my case. Tiny was 5 and Junior was 4. Junior had tested negative earlier in the year and turned positive. Daisy on the other hand was a kitten and was a love bug to Lionel, the cat who was brought from the same shelter.I belive he was the source cause he had a URI and tested positive for FIV and FELV. She has never been sick. She was probably 10 weeks old and repeatedly exposed for months to him when Pumpkin died from this. That is how I found out what was going on and tested all the cats. I lost 4 in total. Junior lived the longest just over two years from testing positive. He was very symptomatic.
