That is somewhat a relief. I won't feel better until he is in the clear. He was not vaccinated when he was exposed. However, he is 2 yrs. old so I know that helps. I'll keep you posted. He will be tested again this Saturday. Keep your fingers crossed ;0)

Thanks so much!

Also remember that cats with age, do develop some natural immunity to FeLV as well as having the vaccine on board. Information changes all the time. One month I hear hours to days and another I hear days to weeks. There are also a lot of factors that go into that like sun, ph, how much FeLV was involved, temperature, etc. and we are typically talking about minuet amounts from sneezes etc.

I don't know what to tell you. I
have always given my negative cats the FeLV vaccine. I
mixed my positives and negatives but did not worry since the
negatives were adults and vaccinated. I understand that no
vaccine is a 100% guarantee but it is better than doing

Many adult cats have developed an natural immunity.

We each do what we think is best for our cats.

I found this link from Cornell University. Cornell states
that previously it was thought that FeLV could only live
minutes to a couple hours outside the host (cat) on surfaces
such as glass, carpets, etc. Now from studies it can last
DAYS TO WEEKS! 2008 is the most recent publication I found
regarding how long FeLV can survive outside the host. This
concens me greatly since I just lost a kitten to FeLV in
March and still have an unprotected cat that may contract
it. So my surviving cat was still getting exposed possibly
weeks after my kitten had died? How frightening! Please give
me your thoughts. Here is the link:

Hello Everyone,
Please dlick on this link to see photos of Amber's new
kitty palace. <div
width="480" height="360"
Amber is the felv positive kitty we rescued 7 weeks ago.
She was on death's door

just absolutely starving and did not look well. She had no
energy to even play.
After 7 weeks of TLC and good food it is hard for me to
believe she has any
issues at all. I have three healthy cats upstairs and I am
not willing to take
the chance of exposing them to the virus even though they
have been vaccinated
against felv.
I am so glad I did not have Amber euthanized! The vet was
leaning in that
direction. God bless you all for all that you do for our
sweet feline friends.
