Re: [Felvtalk] Further update on Tofu cont'd

Emily, congrats to you and Tofu for having found each other, and to
Kelley for babysitting until you did!  Here's vibes that you have a long
and happy life with each other.

FIV is much less problematic than FeLV; often an FIV+ cat can live out
its full lifespan asymptomatically, and since FIV is much harder to
transmit (basically deep puncture wounds and sex) speutering should take
care of the biggest risk factors.  And yes, keeping them healthy is
pretty much the same as with an FeLV+ kitty.

Sorry, my mom was talking at me and I accidently hit send - anyway,  
I was going to say that from what I've read, it seems like the felv  
may be worse to deal with than the fiv, and that the precautions for  
both are about the same. If anyone knows anything different, please  
share!

Thanks!

2009-01-27 Thread Heather
This would be purely anecdoctal on one experience, but, we got a Mom
(double+) and her 4 kittens in March/April of 2007...she has outlived all of
her kittens, though she's also outlived other Leuk+ rescues we've gotten
within that time.   Other than the fact that kittens born with FELV
generally have much shorter lifespans (seems some on this list have had the
major exceptions to that), seems those infected as adults, really just
depends on the individual cat.

Of those 4 kittens we caught at 6 weeks of age, 2 were also double+, 2 only
FIV+...all went on to clear the FIV, but all remained or went + for FELV
(and were retested a few times months apart).

Just in case this experience is of interest...

You are right about the Felv being worse than FIV. I think precaustions
would be about the same. There is another group and FIV group that has files
on double positives. You may want to join that group as well. There are
several people who were on this group and now on that group as well. Thanks
you for taking this cat into your life.
