Thanks for all the hope that you have given me. Fletch had the ELISA test. 
Today I took Wildfire and Shay over and they tested negative.  Tomorrow I will 
take Alvin. ( my grandkids name my cats for me(-:). They vacd Shay and 
Wildfire, so I'm hoping they have a chance. My house is completely open so  I 
cannot separate Fletch from the others. 
Exactly how long does the virus last outside of the body, I seem to find 
conflicting opinions on this!  I let my vet know that I have all of you 
now...thank all of you so much.
