I've heard from some of the vets that FeLV can hide in the bone marrow for a 
while before ever showing up on a combo test.  How long do you think that can 
happen before the combo tests shows positive?  Anyone have experience with 
this?  If the FeLV + cat and the other cat have been living together for a year 
and the healthy cat's combo test was negative after a year together with lots 
of exposure, is there a chance it is still hiding in the healthy cat's bone 
marrow and not showing up yet?  It seems to me that a year would be enough time 
for the virus to show up in a test.

“I am not interested to know whether vivisection produces results that are 
profitable to the human race or doesn’t….the pain which it inflicts upon 
unconsenting animals is the basis of my enmity toward it, and it is to me 
sufficient justification of the enmity without looking further.” – Mark Twain
