Hello, I have been a member of this list for a few days now since I found out that our new kitty tested postive for feline leukemia. We already have one cat, Jasper, who is about 7-8 years old. The animal shelter was unsure of his age when I got him, so we aren't quite sure now either.

I, too, live in SC, and have found that Revolution works wonders on my cats for keeping things under control... Unfortunately it doesn't kill tapeworms, but it does kill roundworms and hookworms. I am lucky enough to have a vet that will sell me the Droncit without seeing the animals. Beverly

Judy, Here is another site with more information on the immune system and Transfer Factor. If you decide to try it you can order it wholesale with the ID number I gave you and the toll free number. I like to talk to a real person when I order something, so I use the toll fee number.

This is a great group, glad you're here. It is unlikely that a healthy adult cat will pick up FELV through casual contact, in my own opinion. However, since this is a new cat, might as well go ahead and separate - it's a polite way to introduce them. But I know several people who mix

I can't tell you much about the seperation part as I only have the one cat, and have never had one before this one. I just want to put in my 2 cents for the idea that FeLv+ cats can live very happy lives. I have one that I've had for 2 years. he may get sick tomorrow, and he has been sick

The odd thing is I didn't do anything special because I had no idea what this diagnosis meant at that time! I even had them vaccinated for feline leukemia every year (makes me wonder about the vet!). Stripes was treated with antibiotics every time he got sick. He nearly died from an injection the
