Hi, I have a kitten who tested Felv positive at 5 weeks old on both the IFA and Elisa test. Both were done on the same day. He is so precious to me and I am so sad. The vet basically said he has no chance. I have been giving him lysine daily and lots of love. He is now 3 months old and is happy and appears healthy. Is it possible that he might be negative now?

Sometimes they turn. Did you ever find the mom cat? If so, have her tested too. If she's young, she may turn negative in 90 days also. The ones a year or younger sometimes do. Even older cats can fight it off. I have a cat who was positive when rescued. He was about 2-3 years old, male. Had him for about 90 days in a separate room, retested with IFA test and again with the ELISA test and he was negative with both tests. I still have Moses. It has been 6 years now. Percy, a recent rescue tested positive for FIV and FeLv. Kept him in a room for 90 days also, retested. He's FIV+ but negative for FeLv so I moved him to my little FIV+ area. He's doing fine. Unfortunately, Smooch and Taco were also adult FeLv+ cats, stayed positive after 90 days. They roomed together, separate from my other cats for 2 years, died within a month of each other. Sad but at least they had those 2 years. Two years to a cat is like 5 years to us. Hugs to you and the kittens. Spay and Neuter your cats and dogs and your weird relatives and nasty neighbors too! _____ From: Lorrie <felineres...@frontier.com> To: firstname.lastname@example.org Sent: Tuesday, August 21, 2012 7:38 AM Subject: [Felvtalk] FelV positive kittens I rescued a litter of four kittens two months ago. Had them tested yesterday for FelV and all 4 are positive! I am heartsick. However, I have a FelV section in my cageless shelter building where they will be able to stay until they are tested again in 90 days. They appear so healthy and playful right now, and I can't bear to put them to sleep. Still I know some of them may not make it............ SO SAD.
