I am a new member to the FeLV talk site, so please pardon me if I am not
following the correct protocol.
We found the cat on our doorstep. My daughter found him there when she came
home from the high school homecoming football game Friday night. It was
starving, and she could not let is suffer.
who can/would like a loving cat, please let me know.

This question is for a foster kitten I know of that tested felv+. Her
name is Sally and she is only 6 weeks old. Happily the rescue that
Sally is with knows enough to test again and Sally is being fostered in
the meantime. I'm wondering this, if Sally has tested pos once,
I did a quick search and found the above link that talks about exposure

First, my greatest sympathy for your current situation.
Second, this is the first email I've seen concerning Lydia so I don't know
anymore than what's in this email. Here's what I can tell you:
1. felv, especially in younger cats and kittens can be horrible.
2. The main problems
We just got back from Murphy's vet check. The end of July, he was
with anemia-(in office PCV 18) HCT 22.3 RBC 3.5 HGB 5.1 even his Absolute
Reticulocyte count was 35200 and the lab notation said a count of over 5
evidence of regenerative anemia-which he was below
A few days ago I posted about a foster cat who tested positive via a SNAP test
for FeLV. We brought him in for the IFA test and I just found out that he
tested negative! This is certainly very welcome news. I understand that we
have to have him retested, but this result is

Nina, I don't want to give you any false hope. It is more likely that an adult
cat will throw off the virus than a kitten. There is always a chance the test
result was an error.
Do you know what became of Sally's littermates. My experience with kittens is
that all in the litter tested
What a great update. Glad Murphy responded so well to your treatment plan.
Hugs to everybody.

This is fantastic news. I think you are the first person I know to have
reversed a nonregenerative anemia without transfusion. There are probably
others but I do not know of them. I would love to recreate your success.
To recap since the anemia (was this hemolytic - sounds like since
I'm sorry for your loss. I can relate to the heartbreak. My first
experience with felv was with tiny
babies too. Happily one of the 6 kittens was neg, so I got to keep my
special Timmy boy with me,
(he's over six yrs old and sitting on my lap as I type this).

I also never saw your original post on Lydia, so I don't know what her
condition is or what led you to have these tests to begin with. My Fuji had an
HCT of 17 about 8 weeks ago. I was very concerned she would need a
transfusion. She has since bounced back and hasn't had the anemia since.
Hi Jenny! OK-we live at the vet-LOL With FeLV, the sooner you can nip
in the bud, the better. Murphy was put on Cyproheptadine in April for
sneezing-we thought allergies because he liked to hang out at the screen door
watch the birds. I had been giving fewer LTCI shots-went to 8
Thanks so much for sharing all this. I'm learning a lot following your posts
am so happy that Murphy is having a comeback. If you don't mind answering some
more questions, I would very much appreciate it.
Just this week I found out by pure accident that the awesome Avis is
Aww Kris-I am so sorry you are going through this and we all have to meet
here-Avis' numbers are so similar to Murphy's in July. I am so glad your little
terrier has found his soulmate-LOL I'll try and remember the questions I tend
