No one knows for sure how long the FELV vaccine is good. But when I had my outbreak two years ago all the cats who had been vaccinated once were negative. It had been many years since I had vaccinated them and there was no boosters given. Cats that had never been vaccinated were in the group

ringworm, like cockroaches and twinkies, will outlive us all, no matter what we do. it sits backs and laughs at us all. there are a number of protocols listed on persian sites specifically for dealing with it, as persians and himmies seem to be more susceptible to it than other cats--a genetic

Lance don't panic, really. The chance of transmission is extremely rare for that brief interaction. Remember that most cats have a natural immunity and if the negative kitty were to be susceptible it would take prolonged contact. Her chances of being struck by lightening are greater than
