Thank you. I guess I should have phrased my question to indicate that I was concerned about spreading FeLV to my non-FeLV cats. If I understand correctly, your cats are, or were, all FeLV-positive, so there would not have been any non-FeLV cats to spread it to?
I told my cousin back in December that I would also keep Baby in April when he goes way again. So now I’m trying to determine if that’s safe to do, and what additional precautions (if any) I should take while she’s here to avoid spread, now that we know she’s FeLV-positive.

I treated all the same and have had no experience of the disease spreading to others. I have had up to 10 at a time as all who came to my house became part of my "pride". As they came to me, I took them to the vet for a checkup, spay or neuter and they became mine. ----- Original Message ----- Hello again, For those of you who have both FELV+ and - cats, how strenuous are your cleaning efforts? For instance, do you wash hands after just petting? Do you have your negative cats retested every year?
