Yesterday, one of my four cats was diagnosed through the ELIZA test
with FeLV, and I am just devastated. He's always
been healthy; he's 3 y.o. and I'd had him since he was a
kitten, until last year when he escaped while we were moving.
He was on the streets for almost four months, then
Molly, have you vaccinated your three negative cats? I have a mixed household
but my negative kitties were vaccinated.

That is fantastic of you to take in a stray. I actually have a felv+ cat. She
is about a year old, in good health and I have her separate from the other
animals in the house. I am looking for a companion for her. There are two
rooms I have her confined to. One with a big window and
That's a common forum of debate in this circle. The best data that I have seen
suggests that approximately 70% of cats exposed to the virus will be able to
mount an immune response capable of irradicating the virus. If the cats are
vaccinated, this number jumps about 85-90%. It is not
That is so great of you to offer. I hope Mike gets back to you. I actually
mixed my positive and negative after a short period apart. The negatives
were vaccinated. There had already been exposure in my case. It was less
stressful for all the cats. I have 11 now. I think I had 9 then but
Sharyl, i haven't gotten that far--we will immunize them and let them
interact, I think, but it's been less than 24 hours since diagnosis
and we're still reeling. I have to talk to the vet, still,and we may
try to keep them separate until the IRV? IRA? results come back, or
even until after
There is a male felv positive cat (tested positive on IFA and elisa) that needs
a home. I work for a shelter and they do not adopt out felv positive cats and
give me a week to find a home or place for them. I am currently away in france
until the 7th but asked if the vet if he could stay
When the vet suspected one of my seven was FeLV+ he reassured me by telling
me my others had already been exposed, so no need to isolate him.

I'm so very sorry, Viky. It is so, so hard when we lose our furbabes,
and especially when they suffer in this way. I'm glad Mickey found you
and was so loved and cared for those during his 8 years with you.
Know you're in my thoughts,
Bless you. You loved a wonderful cat who loved you even more.

Viky, your little guy sounds like a wonderful companion. So glad you were able
to take him around the yard to visit his favorite places before that final
journey. Eight yrs just isn't long enough for someone as special as your
Mickey. All our angels will be at the Bridge to welcome him.
Viky, I am so sorry to hear about your sweet Mickey. So many of us have
been through this and it is always heartbreaking. I am glad you had those
last moments of special time with him.

What a heartbrake. I went through a hermangio sarcoma tsunami with a
friend whose Scottie was
diagnosed with it. It is the most dreadful and aggressive cancer and
I can imagine how stressful
the past 19 weeks have been for you and Mickey.
I know what loosing a beloved cat feels
Thank you Jane. I have two other cats that I love but they are pets. Mickey
was my heart. Why do you have to lose the ones you love the most. In the 17
months that he was receiving the equi-stem shots for im-regulen he was at the
vet 57 times. He was such a sweet little guy and endured it
I am so very sorry. You are such a good mommy. He is free of his pain.
