Hi, This is the first email I'm sending out since 1 of my cats got diagnosed with Felv yesterday. We have 7 other cats but THANK GOD every single one of them tested negative (snap/elisa). We have to have them tested again in 6 months. Do I have to wait that long or can we have them tested sooner?

I don't think that's possible. The kittens can get it through the placenta and milk of their mom, not the sperm of their father. Unles they had close contact with their father but that's not very likely with stray kittens. Males often don't want anything to do with their off spring. I have read A
