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.

That's wonderful, Lorrie! Amazing how some animals seem to have natural 
immunity.

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.

4 kittens from this litter of FelV pos. kittens, and it's heart

and play and then suddenly die? I don't think this is a symptom
of FelV, and I'm wondering if this last kitten we found dead 
yesterday had a genetic heart problem or something else unrelated
to FelV. Any ideas?

We had a litter of 4 and mama. Two of the kittens made it to one year and
died soon thereafter. I can't recall what killed them (Carmen, do you
remember~ was it cancer? Dawn and Dana).

Lorrie,
It sounds like a congenital heart problem.  Sure doesn't sound like anything 
related to FeLV.

Re: [Felvtalk] FelV kittens

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 spent
some time with him watching TV. He went to sleep on the couch. I left the
room to do some other stuff. I heard a horrible coughting sound, I had heard
from him once before. I moved him thinking he might cough a hairball. This
was a much more violent cough than that.I realized he was not getting air. I
got the tank of oxygen it was empty. His gums were blue at this time the
spasms had stopped. He still appeared to be breathing. I went to get the
concentrator. I got yelled at by ny husband for waking him up. This was 5PM.
I went back to watch the life leave his body. I am told he was probably dead
after the intial couigh, and he most like threw a blood clot.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. These kittens would have had no life
without you. They know they were loved and will be waiting for you at the
Rainbows Bridge.

 Love and peace

Sally
