Ana, my cat Clara Bow also had (has) anemia (and is FeLV+). I took her in for a second opinion (and possible transfusion), and was told that she may have hemobartonella. A test confirmed this, and she was put on doxycycline. A week after the antibiotics were started, her hematocrit went from 13% up to 22%. She has been on it for 2 weeks now, and has 2 more weeks to go (much to her chagrin!). You might want to ask your vet to test for it. Clara's hemobartonella infection was so rampant, it showed up on the CBC!

The diagnose was based on an ELISA, she showed FeLV+. How can I tell if she also has regular leukemia? Which analysis needs to be done? Thanks for forwading my mail to your vet. I'm looking forward to read the answer.
