Im so aorry for your loss.  My vet said the virus lasts only a short while 
outside the body, a minute or so.  Healthy adult cats have good immunity to it 
anyhow.   I have lost several felv cats, and never do any extraordinary 
cleaning or waiting when they pass away.  In my opinion don't worry about it.
