Hi there- I don't know if this is the right place, but I am hoping for some feedback. I recently adopted two kittens, a brother and sister. At 7 weeks, I had them tested for FeLV. The boy kitty is positive but the girl kitty is negative. Is that even possible? They have been living together for 7 weeks; wouldn't she be positive if he was at this point? I am taking them both in tomorrow so he can be re-tested with the IFA and she can be vaccinated. I am absolutely devastated. I am in love with both of these kitties and am looking for some hope. My boy kitty is active and playful, though he has had a little diarrhea today and is eating a little less. I'm totally freaked out. I am keeping the two apart, which is also killing me, because they are such a comfort for each other. Does anyone know what my odds are for his second test being negative? Is is weird that she's negative? If he is positive, do I have to keep them apart forever? If we have a baby and he is positive, do we have to get rid of him? I can't even bare thinking of all of this, as he snuggles on my tummy purring while I type. Any advice, support, guidance is sincerely appreciated.
