Bonnie have you 3 cats had their FeLV vaccine?  If so I'd let them get to know 
each other.

 Hi all
 I've tried this e-mail a few times and it bounces back,
 so will try yet again...
 
 Lucky's IFA test results came back: Negative!
 This is 5 weeks after a test at the vet's office pronounced
 him a weak positive for FeLV.  The vet tech said,
 the color just barely changed in explaining what weak
 positive meant.
 In giving the IFA results, the vet surmised Lucky may have
 been recently exposed when he was tested, and the course of
 antibiotics and being taken good care of may have prevented
 the virus from getting a hold on him.
 
 So my questions are: should I trust this test result of
 have him retested again?  If so, when?  Are my 3
 healthy house cats safe to be around him?
 
 As usual, any inputs are appreciated!
 ~Bonnie

No one has been vaccinated.  I was hoping to avoid it (cost, don't like to 
vaccinate unecessarily) but maybe it is a good idea.  They range in age from 
7 years to 14 1/2 years.

Bonnie,
The FeLV vaccine is followed up in 3-4 weeks with a booster.  Many feel adult 
cats have some amount of natural immunity to FeLV.  Since my FeLV's were truly 
positive I didn't want to take any chances and had my negatives vaccinated and 
did the booster before mixing.  I did this when I rescued my 1st two FeLV 
kittens.  I haven't had any problems with my negative kitties.
