Forti-Flora will be fine for a kitten. I used it successfully with mine.
I am rushing out and will write more later.

Thank you so much, Jane. Any and all advice is welcomed. I'm very
new to this, and have been going between feeling hopeful about
things, and bursting into tears. I love him so much. I'm on pins and
needles waiting for my vet to call with the test results.

It is good that you have a vet who is willing to work with you. I am one of
those on this list who mixed my cats. By the time I knew I had a problem all
my cats had been exposed for months. Since stress management is very
important it would seem wise not to upset the kitten by separating
Lisa--good for you for taking such good care of this little guy. And you
have come to the right place for help--folks here are the most knowledgeable
I've ever found. I've mixed and never had a problem. Also, it is always
possible that a kitten can throw off the virus so you may want to retest
Even if the lab test comes back positive, since he's a kitten, make sure you
retest later. I reccommend 3 months.
I have never mixed b/c I've only had 1 felv at a time and had a room for that
cat, but I have let the cat out in the house to roam while the others are put
Check with a holistic vet in addition to your regular vet if you can.
I credit Dixie's life to the cooperation between both types of vets
here in Louisville. I have two boys now who are very healthy (thank
God) and who have tested negative. I still use both types of vets
Try Feliway spray to calm him and Rescue Remedy in his water. Believe
it or not, pumpkin (not pie filling but plain canned pumpkin) mixed in
canned kitten/cat food will help with the diarrhea. (Per several vets
and personal experience with Copper and Thomas Cougar-Kitten).

Lisa, I had a kitten come up positive for FeLV on a Snap test. When the
others, plus mom, tested negative, my vet said she thought it was suspicious
and that I could stop isolating her. Happily, she just tested negative and the
vet's pretty sure it was a false positive.
Stick with this
Thank you for all of your wonderful responses. I can feel the love
and support already! It's so great to hear from other people who
are/were in my situation.
I just went to the store and bought some canned pumpkin as a couple
of you suggested. When I came home, he saw me
My two year old FeLV+ kitty Tweezer has been sneezing blood for a few days.
(At first we didn't know where it was coming from, we were just seeing tiny
blood droplets on the floor.) Last night we saw what was happening. He sounds
a little stuffy, but he has sounded that way since we got him.
Tweezer may have a nasal polyp or something simple...hopefully. If he is
having trouble breathing through his nose (cats are obligate nasal breathers)
get him seen by someone asap. I have an orange tabby, Kirby, who has had these
problems since birth...and I occasionally have to use saline
Tommy's test was positive.
