But what about mixing when the healthy male cat likes to bite and plays rough 
with the FELV pos cat?  They wrestle, lick, groom together and bite/nip as they 
play and cuddle and sleep together.   Has anyone had mixed cats that do this 
and my question is, is it safe in that situation?  It's one thing if they are 
all just hanging out but if there is close contact, what is the consensus?  Is 
that a safe situation for mixing the positive and negative ones?  Curious to 
know.  Please respond.  Dotty  - Freehold

Ditto. I've mixed mine for years, had negatives re-tested numerous times & all 
is well. I even had an FIV positive cat who mixed with my FelV cats for 10 
years. He never got it, either.
You might search the archives on "mixing" for more info.

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.
