No one has been vaccinated. I was hoping to avoid it (cost, don't like to vaccinate unecessarily) but maybe it is a good idea. They range in age from 7 years to 14 1/2 years. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Sharyl" <>

Bonnie have you 3 cats had their FeLV vaccine? If so I'd let them get to know each other.

Hi all
I've tried this e-mail a few times and it "bounces" back,
so will try yet again...

Lucky's IFA test results came back: Negative!
This is 5 weeks after a test at the vet's office pronounced
him a "weak positive" for FeLV. The vet tech said,
"the color just barely changed" in explaining what "weak
positive" meant.
In giving the IFA results, the vet surmised Lucky may have
been recently exposed when he was tested, and the course of
antibiotics and being taken good care of may have prevented
the virus from getting a hold on him.

So my questions are: should I trust this test result of
have him retested again? If so, when? Are my 3
healthy house cats safe to be around him?

As usual, any inputs are appreciated!
