Hi Lee,

 

                Just a caution, 18 months ago I had no FeLV positive cats. I now have two.  The same cats. The infection can apparently sequester in the bone marrow, and resurface with immune suppression and/or stress.

 

                 That's why I say my "mixing" was inadvertant :(

 

Margo

Where do you live? I'm in South Texas, have had a double positive boy. Kept him for three months. He turned negative for FeLv, now in my FIV+ enclosure.

 
Spay and Neuter your cats and dogs and your weird relatives and nasty neighbors too!

I can't put him in with the other cats. I wouldn't do it with my own
cats, one of whom is FIV+ and thus especially vulnerable to contracting
FeLV, because the vaccination is not 100% effective and having seen the
ravages of FeLV I would never risk that. But it's not up to me in our
foster homes, anyway. I can't make other people put FeLV+ cats with
their own negative cats, and we can't expose cats we are saying tested
negative to FeLV and then adopt them out when they may be incubating
it. Plus we cannot afford to give our foster cats 2 FeLV shots on top
of everything else we do; it would add another $40/cat in vet costs
even with the discount we get.

thanks, though,
Michelle
