Sherry, I am so sorry to hear about your Juno. Gentle Bridge vibes to her. You do so much for these kittys, I know they appreciate you. I just adopted a little 3 year old girl, also named Juno, two weeks ago. Perhaps a little part of your Junos spirit will live on in my little Juno. Sue

Amanda, I feed a dumpster colony of cats. I have spayed/neutered 8 of the these cats and kept 7. Of the 7 six have tested FeLV+ more than once using the ELISHA test. These 6 were kittens ranging in age from 4 weeks to 12 weeks of age when I rescued them. I lost Bright Eyes at 7 months from

Hello, I have a cat who is 9 years old (born apr 2000) and she has always been in good health condition and never been to the veterinary (except for her vaccines, yearly). She lived the first two years in an apartment with no contacts with other cats, then we changed home and she got the

I do not know what age Mandy became leukemia-positive. I adopted her at age 6 and she was positive at that time. She has no symptoms so I am doing no treatments at this time. My 7 cats are all strictly indoor--the other 6 are vaccinated and interact with Mandy. In two years, no one has

I have seven cats, the youngest being Taz was diagnosed with FeLv when she started getting sick after about 1 month with my other negative kitties all of which are vacinated. I took Taz in to get her looked at and to get her shots. That's when they tested her for FeLv and she came back

Hi Pat This is our story. We adopted MeMe as a one year old from a pretty horrible hoarding situation. She was pretty sick at the time ...very bad URI, diarrhea, swollen glands, stomatitis etc. Although the 'shelter' told us she was negative for Felv, our vet suspected she was positive

This is Dixie's story: For reasons unknown, a little grey full grown female came to my Mom's and began eating with the ferals she feeds and staying in a rubbermaid box I had outfitted as a shelter. I decided she should be a farm cat at my farm when I got the house built. I took her to

I just re-read your questions. Dixie Louise was an indoor cat from the day she tested positive except for a few unauthorized walk abouts. When I moved out of my Mom's (I was building a house) and into a trailer to provide her a warm winter home Dixie lived with Kitty Katt. Again, Kitty

We don't know when our positive contracted the disease. We purchased him at 4 years, being told he was perfectly healthy. He died in less than two months after we got him. When we took him to the vet we were told he was positive but for his well being should have him neutered anyway. I will

I agree, they do enlarge our ability to give. If I hadn't run home and googled FeLV and found this group Boo may have been euthanized the very day we got the call asking us if we wanted to put him down. If nothing else, that little guy helped educate us about this miserable disease. When we
