Tickles had what is called the IDEXX? test done on him. Does that sound familiar to you, GRAS?

@LINDA, I have heard of coccidia, but what exactly is it? Can it be cured with meds? Our vet can't seem to figure out the source of the blood and feels he may rupture some small capillaries when he is passing stool. He does not cry out when he goes or appears to be in any sort of discomfort.

Sorry, I meant which FeLV test was done on him?

My FeLV kitty had blood in his stools but he also had coccidia.

Does it make a difference to how you love him?

We have a bot, belonged to the ahole neighbors who did not take care
of him. We have known him since he was about 4-5 months old. Very long
story short, we have him. Took him to the vet to get a check up, shots
and neutered with the intention of making him a part of our family,
along with 3 other cats. Found out he was Feluk+. After balling and
researching this crap disease, we decided we loved him too much to let
him go anywhere but here. He was approximately 1 year and 8 months old
when he tested positive on 11/29/11. He is now almost 2 and a half. I
was wondering if anyone could tell me if it would be beneficial to
have him re-tested. Is there any chance he may have grown out of it
since he was younger when he got it? He eats well and plays well.
Sometimes, his stool contains a small amount of blood in it. We have
had him tested for everything in an effort to find out why this is.
The vet stated she does not believe the blood has anything to do with
his FeLuk. He is currently on ID.
So, does anyone think getting him tested again is a good idea?

Glad you left that vet.  even if the cat were still positive, at that
age she culd live a long and healthy life.  Annie was 4 when she
tested positive.  She is now 8 going on 9 and the healiest, happiest
cat I ever saw.

that I should euthanize her! I am so glad I did not listen to him.
BTW, he is no longer my vet.

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?

Hang in there Lorrie.  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!

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.
