For everyone that gave me advice a couple weeks ago in regards to the FeLuk/FIV 
re-testing of our 2 1/2 year old greybie baby, Tickles. He still tested 
positive for the FeLuk virus and now also is FIV positive. We apparently had 
him tested before the 8-12 week FIV onset. We are disappointed, but still love 
him and he will be with us for the rest of his life. We have chosen to keep him 
separate from the other three. I know there are those of you who mix your 
negatives with your positives who are vaccinated, but we do not want to do 
that. We feel that with any vaccine, nothing is 100% guaranteed. We want to be 
completely safe. We have a 6 year old dominant, ok, bitchy at times, female. I 
can already see them scrapping. Thank you to everyone for your input and great 
advice.  :)

I feel for you.. I rescued a litter of 4 kittens who all tested FelV
positive.  They are now about 4 1/2 months old and still very active and
playful with no sign of sickness. I plan to have them restested next month,
and I'm hoping they will all be negative by then.  They have three isolation
rooms to play in at my cat sanctuary, and I feed them well and keep them
stress free. This does help.

 Hello,
 
 I'm sorry for that first email. I wanted to find out if anyone had some
 advice and suggestions on nutrition for the little kitten I have rescue
 who is FeLV positive. She has tested positive and is the kitten of a feral
 cat, her glands are big but I'm hoping because she is now indoor and being
 cared for well she will test negative so I can keep her with my other two
 adult cats. I have been feeding her canned good with very high protein
 contents and no seafood, I read that was the recommended diet but any
 other suggestions, hints, are very welcome!
 
 Thank you

Like everyone else has said, ALWAYS ALWAYS re-test.  Never rely on one positive 
ELISA test.  It can show a false positive but even if it's not a false positive 
it is possible the cat can extinguish, meaning totally get rid of, the virus.  
I would do an IFA test like someone else mentioned.  It looks to see if the 
virus has spread into the white blood cells.  If the IFA is negative the cat 
can still kick the virus so you would need to wait and re-test.  Also, the cat 
could put the virus into dormancy, which means it may  not ever have problems 
with the virus and it can't spread it.
 
Lots of people on the site have mixed positives and negatives.  I have a friend 
with lots of rescued cats.  She has 3 positive cats.  She has all her negative 
cats vaccinated against FeLV and over the years none have ever caught FeLV.  
She even has FIV positive cats that get vaccinated and have never caught the 
FeLV virus.  No vaccinations are 100% but it would seem that in most cases it 
works.  Another vet I talked with said that most researchers now feel that even 
non-vaccinated healthy adult cats are resistant to the FeLV virus.  So even if 
you don't vaccinate it's possible the other cats wouldn't catch the virus.  
That happened in my house.  No cats in my house caught the virus from one who 
had it (her first test was negative so I didn't know I had a FeLV cat mixed in 
until she died and we did the necropsy and another ELISA).  None of my cats 
were vaccinated against FeLV but somehow none of them caught it.  In your case 
though, I
 wouldn't take the chance and would vaccinate the other cats but it's just 
interesting that it's not spread as easy as many people believe.

Subject: stray kitten positive any advice for me


I came across this site, having just been informed by the vet that the 
abandoned kitten I took in three weeks ago. Before I took it to the vet,  I 
have been keeping it in a separate room but admit that since it seemed so 
healthy I let it out for little walks.  I have 4 cats over 12 years old. Other 
than walking on the same floors, they have not had contact with this kitten.  
In our short phone call, the vet basically said that she would understand if I 
euthanized the cat and that she wasn't sure about false positive and whether 
retesting would be worthwhile. The cat also has hookworms.  When I took the cat 
in, she suggested that I give it its vaccinations before waiting for test 
results.  I asked if the cat turned out postitive, wouldn't this harm its 
immune system.  she said no.  Now when she called she said she was surprised 
that the cat tested positive since, other than the sore gums, which she 
attirbuted to teething and bad breath, she said it
 seemed healthy.  It does seem healthy , eats well and plays. and is the 
sweetest cat, loving and intelligent.  I am heartbroken about this. I'm sorry I 
haven't had time to read all archives but I work from home and also take care 
of my bedridden elderly mother.  Is there anyone out there would be kind enough 
to give me some advice? Thank you. PS  the test done was elisa and it just says 
positive the vet estimates the cat is from 5-6 months old.

I will be 63 next month and I have been telling people off about
animals for several years now.

Just did it yesterday to a woman who took her 4H'rs into McDonalds for
a relaxed, air-conditioned treat while FIVE horses sat in direct sun
in an enclosed trailer.  One of the horses was neighing and kicking so
hard the trailer was rocking.  I went inside and found her, told her
one of the horses was distressed and I felt she shouldn't have left
them in the direct sun while they trooped inside to eat.  She told me
she was trying to get the girls out but they weren't finished eating
yet.  I told her that is why it is called fast food.  She could order
the food and they can eat in the truck.  Suffer - your horses are!

She seemed to be a bit miffed at me!  Said very un-4H-like words!

Sigh.

Tee hee.

Wonder what I'll be like at 80?

 In all honesty, I have found MANY people in rescue to be horribly cruel and
 judgmental - towards OTHER PEOPLE, particularly other people in rescue.
 Rescue is a cutthroat business and not for the faint of heart. There's
 always someone ready to kick you when you're down, say you are not doing
 something right because you aren't doing what they would do, etc etc etc.
 I've seen rescue groups purposely try to run other rescue groups out of
 rescue. (This is not directed towards anyone here, just what I think
 whenever I see an I hate people thread.) In contrast, MOST of my adopters
 have been lovely people. We did have a couple who moved to NYC and had a
 baby who was allergic to the cats (and you can ask all the questions on a
 form you want, when it comes down to it you don't know what people will do)
 and they bothered to contact us instead of sending the cats off to the
 pound. We made arrangements for them to be picked up (they paid half) and
 delivered back to us safely.

  Need advice on Feline Leukemia Vaccinations.
 
  I have not introduced new cat (Peaches) to my other cats, as I want to

  Peaches was never tested for Feline Leukemia, she was given 1st  2nd

  She also had a vaccination in 2010
 
  I have 3 other cats:
  All cats will stay indoors!
 
  *Nibbles *(got from shelter when 1 yr. old)
  Age: 2.5
  Nibbles had 1st Feline Leukemia shot 3/23/11, but not 2nd Feline Leukemia
  shot.
  Didn't get 2nd: worrying about tumors  didn't think that I would

I think that people should have to be kept on record when they take animals to 
the pound and what not, i wonder, quite honestly, how many people out there get 
kittens and puppies and then  drop them off once they get bigger or realize 
that there just to hyper, or even worse, they just grew up. It makes you want 
to ask the question, thou i know kids are no comparison, but makes you want to 
ask if they would give their kids up for adoption because they don't listen or 
potty train easy, chewed on your faviorte shoe, or was just to hyper.. sorry 
this is a ruff subject for me.

 That's a shame. I know when my husband attended UT, we wanted a cat or a 
 kitten for a companion for me. It was so hard to find any!! They went like 
 hotcakes, I guess b/c it's a college town. We eventually found one who 
 happened to be orange  white :)
 
 This woman could have found it a home, but it must have cramped her style. I 
 agree with you, she should be spayed and be banned forever from having any 
 other pets as well. It's obvious her fiancé has no heart, she should have 
 tossed him out instead!! If he has no feelings for helpless animals, then 
 how will he treat her? Geez!

 I DO tend to be judgmental when I get the I met a man and need to dump my 
 cat because he has a dog/kids/hates cats . . . email. As a matter of fact, 
 got one the other day. Woman in Austin threw her 14 year old declawed cat 
 outside in this heat because her fiance is allergic AND then to add insult 
 to injury, she posted the cat for FREE on Craigslist. Yep, those are the 
 types of people that I have no use for and personally, I feel they should be 
 spayed/neutered. Are all people like that? Absolutely not. Are too many 
 people like that? you bet your boots. Sad, but true :(

  In all honesty, I have found MANY people in rescue to be horribly cruel 
  and
  judgmental - towards OTHER PEOPLE, particularly other people in rescue.
  Rescue is a cutthroat business and not for the faint of heart. There's
  always someone ready to kick you when you're down, say you are not doing
  something right because you aren't doing what they would do, etc etc etc.
  I've seen rescue groups purposely try to run other rescue groups out of
  rescue. (This is not directed towards anyone here, just what I think
  whenever I see an I hate people thread.) In contrast, MOST of my 
  adopters
  have been lovely people. We did have a couple who moved to NYC and had a
  baby who was allergic to the cats (and you can ask all the questions on a
  form you want, when it comes down to it you don't know what people will 
  do)
  and they bothered to contact us instead of sending the cats off to the
  pound. We made arrangements for them to be picked up (they paid half) and
  delivered back to us safely.

Tweezer lost his battle with this horrible disease this afternoon.  He had
an aggressive lymphoma so there was no hope that he would get better or that
he could even be made more comfortable.  He crashed at the beginning of this
week and was having spasms that were making it very difficult for him to
eat, drink or even to stand.  He has been very unhappy and scared all week
long.  

When I took Tweezer in he was extremely malnourished and had worms, ear
mites, goopy eyes and an upper respiratory infection.  As his health
improved he became such a happy cat!  He was so happy to be alive, he always
wanted to play and be loved.  This is a you-tube link to a video I took of
him a few months ago.  He would come to me and ask me to come and play with
him and then lead me to the toys.

Rest in peace my darling Tweezer.  My heart is breaking but at least there
is no feline leukemia where you are now.

Someone surveyed the group about a year ago and quite a few people do
co-mingle. Maybe you can check archives on co-mingling if you want to see
that information.

Because the FeLV+ cat has a compromised immune system, it is important to
protect that cat from anything contagious going on with the other cats (eg
URI).

I am heartbroken to say that this afternoon my sweet Casper lost his battle.  
He was one of the most sweet tempered cats I have ever known.  He never ever 
bit or clawed anyone in anger, not for any reason. 

He used to come to bed and make bread in the middle of the night right into my 
stomach until I got in the habit of sleeping while holding his paws gently in 
my hands. 

He loved nothing more then to be brushed with an old blue hairbrush.  In the 
middle of the night last night I was spending what I was pretty sure was my 
last few hours with him brushing him with it.  He was still pushing against it 
with the sides of his face and purring.  This morning when I left for work I 
told him goodbye and thanked him for coming to live with me and being such a 
special kitty.  My mother in law sat with him today and he passed around 2:30.  
She told me the rest of the cats in the house came and sat in a circle around 
him, almost like a vigil.  Orlando has slept near him for the last several days 
and through the night. 

I hope now Casper is in a place where there is no more feline leukemia and he 
can run free and watch the birds and chipmunks all he wants.  Whenever I lose 
one of these sweet kitties they take a piece of my heart.

Baby Girl died tonight around 7:30. It feels so strange to write that; I've had 
her for two years, she's been symptom-free for two yearsand then it 
happened. She declined quickly. I knew she was not going to make it, so we had 
a vet appointment for tomorrow morning for her to be PTS. Even a couple of days 
ago she was purring a bit and looking for chin scratches and head rubs, but by 
the time I left for work this morning I think she hardly knew I was there. When 
I arrived home this evening she was lying on her side, barely breathing. I held 
her on my lap for about 45 minutes, just waiting, then she shuddered, my lights 
flickered and she was gone. She will join Duncan, Charlotte, Chutney and Frosty 
Paws at the bridge. Now Celery is the last remaining cat of my original FeLV 
group.

He had quite the adventure along the way, with the first overnight in LA and 
the second overnight near Sacramento.  At each stop he got a private room, 
catered meals, catnip.  And he shared a turkey sandwich with the truck driver 
who took him from Bakersfield to Sacramento.  He was a great traveler, not at 
all stressed out.  I think he may have actually enjoyed his little road trip.
