If your other cats are vaccinated for FELV, why not let him in with them?
Annie is now 8 and doing fine. Her only problem is she was an only cat in
her previous home and does not like to share with other cats. (Nitnoy died

I have a question re vaccinations I have 2 15 year olds, one never goes out,
she is terrified of outside and the other goes down on the ground to potty and
then back to the deck for a snooze in the sun. Another 8 year old goes out
very little and another tht stays on the deck. Do they need
I only maintained FVRCP vaccines when I fosterd kittens non- FeLV cats for
the rescue I work with. They typically came from animal control facilites, so
there was much more risk. Unless your cats are exposed to other cats, I really
don't see a reason for the FVRCP vaccine. And I definitely
I agree. Once your other cats are fully vaccinated, there is no reason to
separate. I have mixed my healthy (even FIV+) cats with my FeLV cats for years
with no problems. You might want to search the archives on mixing for more
info on this, but many of us mix our positives negative, fully

No vaccine is 100%
I've been mixing mine for over 10 years have had no negative, vaccinated cats
catch the virus. Even my 2 vaccinated FIV cats never caught it. And I have had
the negatives retested several times. I've had as many as 5 positives 5
negatives at one time. No transmission.
This is a repost, maybe it will help?

The only ones who might have contact would be the2 year olds, but a cat would
have to wander in from town and that is 2 miles away. They are more likely to
have contact with mice, moles, rabbits, groundhog, snakes, maybe a skunk, but
have not seen or smelled one of those for several years now.
