I have 2 positives, one of them over 12 years old, the other about 2 or 3. Both of them have been intermingling with my negatives (currently 8 of them) for years. I keep the negatives up to date on vaccinations and haven't yet had one turn positive although I kept the very young cats away from them until they were older and thru the full series of vaccinations.
