I've also read that there are several FeLV viruses. The virus that is contagious is the main virus, while two other viruses arise within the cat after the main virus interacts with the cat's DNA. So-called FeLV-B is responsible for increased cancer risk while FeLV-C is responsible for the kind of

I see this differently. So does The Winn Foundation. They say; Finally, some cats can develop latent or sequestered infection. This probably happens to about 5-10% of cats. These cats, whose virus is hiding in sites such as the bone marrow, will rarely be contagious and are

Her anemia isn't really understood; it comes and goes so I'm wary of the non regenerative anemia diagnosis. I'm not sure if her recent problems are related to anemia or to the URI. We're looking for a new vet at the moment. As soon as I know more, I'll let you all know. -Amanda On Wed, Jun

I'll be thinking of Polli, hoping for another rebound. She's been on my prayer list for a little while. Has she ever had a transfusion? I know the effects aren't permanent, but it might be able to buy you some time to see what's going on and treat that. Take care of yourself, Amanda. Lance
