My little guy Fletch, just passed about a month ago from Felv. The vets figured he had it from the day he was born. My 3 others ranging from 2 to 5 have lived with him, groomed him, ate and drank with him, etc. None of them were ever vaccinated for felv and they all tested negative. Dr mike Richards has some good articles on felv on the net, if u r interested. And I must say that I do feel very lucky that everyone tested neg.
