I'm joining this list serv with a heavy heart. We rescued a young Mom cat and
her 4 babies. They appeared healthy for all intents and circumstances.
Mom just tested positive for FeLV, 2 babies also did (one slight positive, the
other one was definitely positive), and 2 tested negative
Can anyone recommend good supplements for a felv+ kitten? Kitten is a stray, 3
