to bolster what Amani wrote. Felv appears to be a minor risk for adult cats who did not get the disease from the queen at birth. It is a MAJOR risk for kittens born with the disease who still show it at 6 months. I wouldnt worry terribly about adults getting it from a kitten....would definitely worry abiut exposing kittens to a disease carrying adult OR kitten....also Caution with FIV adults

I have three cats, and take care of other people?s cats.
My daughter?s friend has a FeLV positive cat, can I keep her in a separate room for a week, do I have to wash all the linens and clean the room, after the cat goes back home? It?s because I take care of other friend?s cats also and want to know if they can catch The disease.

Actually, Feline Leukemia can also be transmitted through ?friendly? contact. Sharing food/water and grooming each other over a period of time. The virus only lives for a few hours in the environment, so really just cleaning out the food/water bowls and litter box after the cat leaves should suffice, and check to see if any wet spots on floor, etc. from water or urine and disinfect just to be on the safe side.

You might want to have different shoes on too? and clothes, if you will be playing with and handling the cat a lot, in case drools on you?but that might be going overboard. Definitely wash hands after handling...

My take on this disease is that FeL is transmitted by direct contact with blood or saliva from the infected cat. The FeLV is transmitted primarily through a bite.

As I said ? I had a cat in with at least 8 other cats for 7 years with no transmission. They shared food and water bowls, beds, grooming, playing, biting, scratching - the whole nine yards. I don?t think it is particularly contagious with older cats.

Immune system plays a huge part-usually mature cats have a vibrant immune system, it?s the very young or older cats that would be more at risk, IMO. Also, the FeLV cat?s immune system is compromised, I believe, so contact with other cats would be something to consider for the health of the FeLV diagnosed cat. I have a cat diagnosed in 2010, that I strongly feel beat the virus-(answer to Prayer) he was older when I found him, the vet guessing him to be around 1 year old. We keep him in our guest room with a modified door so he ?participates? in the hall/house activities and the room is ventilated. I will not take him to the vet unless he becomes ill-keeping the STRESS down so no testing! My practice is to wash my hands with alcohol and or soap for 20 seconds before & after I?m in his room. I keep his dishes sterile, no shared food or water or containers- but that?s about it. Now- this is my practice and everyone needs to follow his/her own inner voice on this matter- just sharing - not pushing an agenda. lol
