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.
Nortina, First of all welcome to the group. There are people here with a great
deal of knowledge about this horrible disease.
I have seven cats, two are positive for feline leukemia. The negative cats are
all vaccinated. My oldest positve, Orlando, is 11 years old and the youngest,
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.
I would keep them separated for the 30 days. I am very cautious.

Karen, I have Feline Transfer Factor in powder form.
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
Anyone know one..esp for cancer?

You have already received some good advise. There is a mix of positive and
negative cats in my home. My positives are relatively young with the oldest
two approx 1 1/2 yrs old. Like McFluffins, love the name, they are rescues.
My negative kitties have been vaccinated. I

With that wonderful statement, can you tell me how you cared for them -
both the sick
one and the well one?
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
