Re: [Felvtalk] Feluk positive kitty

Edna, 1st thanks for fostering this little guy.  It is amazing how mixed folks 
can get.  The FeLV virus only lives for minutes to hours outside of the body.  
A normal cleaning is all you need to do.

 We just rescued a Feluk + kitty and are fostering him for
 two weeks until he is past his 14 day quarantine and goes to
 another foster home.  My question is this, we have 28
 cats (yep, that's a LOT of cats) and we will keep him in the
 study during this time.  However, I have had several
 people say oh you need to throw everything away and bleach
 everything down when he is gone or you will transmit it to
 your cats and it is my understanding that the virus is
 fragile when outside it's living host and therefore, I would
 thinlk that a good cleaning and some time (i.e. a week or
 two) would be sufficient before letting our cats back into
 the study.  Thoughts?  We have wood floors but
 there is a rug, chair and cat condos in there (which can be
 removed, of course).
  
 Thanks,
 Edna

Hi Edna,  

I'm sure many others will write to you about this, but FelV is not
all that contagious.  It's usually transmitted by sharing food and
water bowls or by grooming each other, and maybe litter boxes, but
not sure about that.  As you've heard, the virus cannot live long
outside the cat's body, so there is no need to bleach things other
than food and water bowls, litter boxes etc.

Thanks for fostering this kitty, and for the record I have almost as 
many cats as you have!  I have 13 at home and 10 in my cageless no
kill shelter building in town, and I also feed a feral colony.
Gotta love those furry little kitties!

Lorrie

No need to throw anything out.  I don't even wash the carriers. These myths 
infuriate me!

Thanks Beth, I figured as much because I deal with people freaking out about 
FIV all the time and I don't even consider FIV an issue.
