Do NOT vaccinate cats that are not well - it only depresses immune systems, especially when you need to protect them the most! Natalie

That is a tough one. Because of her respiritory problem, you might not want to stress her immune sstem with the vacinnation. On the othr hand, she should be vacinnated before intro to felv pos cts. You say the felv pos is feisty, both of mine are healthy, sleek girls. Annie is 8 (4 years after diagnses) and Nitnoy is 2 or 3 (we are not sure, think sh was one when she came to my house). Cold you isolate her in 1 room or in a fairly large cage until she can be treated for respiritory an she gains a bit of strength? Then she could stand up to the felv shot. Start he on immune boosters to build her up. I am nt as up on this subject, need to hear from others.
