I had two rescued litters of 11 FelV positive kittens. All of them died within 2 years except for one. He has been tested several times and he remains negative. He is now 4 years old and very healthy. Lorrie On 06-27, Beth wrote: Most of mine that were born  with it lived about 1 1/2

Lorrie, I'm sorry for your losses. Kittens with felv have the least chances of making it. Once they get over a year or two their chances greatly improve. I'm so sorry. tonya Lorrie felineres...@kvinet.com wrote: I wrote two weeks or so ago about a very sick FelV kitten who was anemic

I wrote two weeks or so ago about a very sick FelV kitten who was anemic and had lost control of her back legs, and her bladder. We took her to the vet and he felt she was in the last stages of FelV, with little or no hope for recovery. She was 9 months old and only weighed 3 and a half pounds.

My Tiny died this way. He was pretty much asymptomatic. Other than initial treatment he never required antibiotic or all the measures I too for Junior. On Christmas day 2006 I knew he was not feeling good, but it was not such that I would have taken him to a vet even if it was a regular day. I
