Lee, It's very encouraging that you've had three adults with FelV throw off the virus. I've never been that fortunate, and having these FelV cats and kittens with a death sentence is absolutely devastating to me. I am the same as you said you were........ much too emotional.
As I may have written previously, the only "miracle" I had was with a litter of 6 kittens who were all FelV pos. except for one. I still have Weegie (4 years old now, and he's been retested twice and never got the virus, while all his siblings died years ago.
