  Hi everyone
  Well, I just got back from the vet and Alvin (appropriatly named at 
Christmastime by my grandson) tested negative!  I'm so happy today, even though 
I'm not clear out of the woods...One Day at a Time.

    There are many stories on this board of cats who are pos living to a ripe 
old age.  However, they are very susceptible to infections and to lymphomas, 
for example.  Had my Romeo who was a stray I brought in from the street & he 
died very quickly from lymphoma years after.  Basically, it seems the best you 
can do for these little ones is good food, lots of good care, and love.  I do 
not give interferon though a couple of times Tucson has had a very low white 
blood cell count & my vet used a series of immune regulin injections on her & 
count bounced back up.  I probably run her to the vet faster than I might the 
other cats just so as not to miss any infection brewing.  I had a senior blood 
panel done on her this year & everything was good.  But I know that things 
happen quickly and I enjoy her every day (well, almost every day! LOL) and hope 
for the best.



    As for the other cats, they had spent years together—sharing dishes, 
grooming each other, using the same litter boxes, and occasionally getting into 
little scuffles.  They all tested neg & I just don’t think its quite as 
contagious as some of the literature  (& some vets) make it out to be.

    That is wonderful! I keep hearing a lot of stories filled with hope. I keep 
telling Fletch he can kickthis and he growls at me(-: He's a stinker!!  I had 
my two vaccinated today and the third one is going to the vet tomorrow. I hope 
he is negative also.



    Thanks so much for sharing.

    Take care

    Marcia

    My Tucson is 13 & was found pos when she was 4.  She had tested neg as
    kitten but was never outside so vets were sure she was pos from birth.  She
    lives with my other cats all of whom were around her for 3-4 years before I
    found her to be pos.  She's still going strong and none of the other cats
    tested pos.  I vaccinated the others.

    Hi everyone!  My one year old sweet litle boy was just diagnosed. I have a
    million questions and hope to learn a lot from all of you. This is every
    hard to swallow. I have 3 other adult cats in myj house that have not been
    vaccinated for felv. I didn't see a reason for it, I didn't trust the
    vaccine and I am sorry now. Funny thing is, is that I tried so hard to keep
    my cats healthy. I wouldn't even wear my shoes in the house for fear I would
    carry something in!
    Anyway, my little boy Fletch has a fever, horrible looking coat and I can
    feel his hipbones and some of his backbone. He continues to eat and drink
    ok. They are on a grain free diet and have a water fountain.
    Thanks so much for being here.
