My first Feluk kitty (well, only one that was actually MY cat) lived to be 16
years old and we never gave him anything special in the way of food and/or

we didn't know a lot about Feluk at the time) and he was a

Well, this is my opinion and experience with having FELV kitties in the past but don'tany now.
My first personal experience was back in mid part of1999 I got a kitten that I named Taz was FELV and he died in January 2002. He had it in his bone marrow.He diedfrom secondary illnesses.
You're welcome Joslin. I told someone recently that even with the healthy
cats, we have no guarantees. As with people, their life expectancy is unknown
to us. I have seen people drop dead of a heart attack at 35 years old and
others live to well into their 90s.

Beautiful story, thank you.
I'm beginning to think each FeLV case is a little different -- maybe varying
degrees of infection, or locale of infection, I don't know. My mantra is,
better safe than sorry.
You obviously loved Taz very much. My condolensces on his passing.
I too once had a
Right on! And good life lesson, Edna.

So, I guess what I am saying is, cherish the time you have together, don't
worry about what will happen tomorrow because they are in our lives for such a
short time but in our hearts forever.

I agree, my vet told us we could try the vaccine, but it would be best to get
another felv cat. They refer the shot to people who already have more than one
cat in there household and find out that one is infected.. so they don't have
rid of any there pets, but if you can save another felv
I really appreciate your story, and the care, love and attention you show
your animal friends. It is something I can relate to.
As for your questions: I always have one litter box per cat. They might
share, cross use, etc. But I think it provides plenty of bathroom space

My technique is to keep the cats and their boxes (and food) separated for a
while. I have a spare bedroom that I use. I currently have Lucky (FeLV +)
in there. I let him out to sniff the house, get to know it, and allow the
other three cats to see him. If anyone starts a hissy fit, I put
Welcome to the group. You will really learn a lot here.
I'm sorry your Bodie is FelV positive, and I know how scared you
feel. It would be difficult to answer your question about how long a
FelV cat can live, as it is different with each cat. Kittens seem to
be the most susceptible
Thank you Tazzy for your positive story. We are already so attached and I am
so torn. I certainly don't want to make this sweet baby sick!
I believe that Shadow (our current name choice may change!) chose us for a
reason! My husband never would have considered another cat if this one hadn't
I have to say my experience is pretty much the same as Terrie's. With my first

paranoid. I think it was 2001. But even the vet reassured mr that the virus
wasn't that contagious. I relaxed a bit.

I mixed my cats on the ADVICE OF MY VET. She vaccinated my negatives, including
my FIV+ cat every 6 months. I had 5 negatives 5 positives who shared
everything. I even had one cat live for many months in one room with one of my
negatives. All negative cats have been re-tested several times

Over vaccinating can also be damaging in its own right. Please everyone

Yes, vaccines can be damaging. The stress of keeping the cats separated can be
damaging as well. Stress on the cats was a big factor in me mixing mine. It is
a choice you have to make - weigh your options, talk to your vet, talk to
others make the decision you are comfortable with.
Yes, it can be. Stress can also be damaging was a big reason I chose to mix.
At this point my negative cats are all 9-10 yrs old have other medical issues
which will probably get them way before FeLV or Vaccine sarcomas.
Again, it is a personal choice which should not be made lightly. All the
