Hello,

I tried sending a post several days ago, but my membership had not gone through 
yet so my post was rejected.  I was asking for suggestions on how to get my FLV 
cat, Chloe, to eat.  Very sadly, she passed away early yesterday morning.  I 
wish I had found this group earlier, but from the time she started feeling 
droopy to the time she passed away was just three weeks - way too fast.  
Anyway, 

can anyone tell me what I need to do, if anything, to her cat tree, cat tunnel, 
litter box, toys, etc. before I pass them on to another home?  I have read that 
the virus does not live long outside of the body, but have also read that a 
person should wait 30 days before introducing another cat in the home - leaving 
me to believe that perhaps her things may still have enough of the virus on 
them 

to get other cats sick.  That is the last thing I'd want.  Does anyone have any 
suggestions?

I am so sorry about Chloe, Laura. I lost Celery 2 weeks ago. He went from 
healthy to dead in a week. I had made an appointment to have him euthanized on 
a Wednesday morning. Our appointment was at 3 PM. He went downhill in just 
those few hours. I put him in the car, got him to the vet's ten minutes away, 
filled out the paperwork, reached my hand down to pet him and he was already 
dead.

In my case, I keep my FeLV cats in my heated garage away from my healthy cats. 
I have always wondered about the possibility of tracking the virus in on my 
feet or on the dogs' paws.

That's not true. Cats can contract it even when their immuun system is
strong. They just don't get sick from right away. So healthy cats can also
get it. I would be very carefull with the things your cat used!

2010/11/7 Gloria Lane gbl...@aristotle.net

 Im so aorry for your loss.  My vet said the virus lasts only a short while
 outside the body, a minute or so.  Healthy adult cats have good immunity to
 it anyhow.   I have lost several felv cats, and never do any extraordinary
 cleaning or waiting when they pass away.  In my opinion don't worry about
 it.

It's true that healthy cats can get it, but since it needs a host to survive  
does not last outside the body, there is no need to start throwing things out. 
Fears like this are what make people so scared of FeLV cats  why vets 
routinely euthanize them. I would never discard something just because an FeLV 
cat used it.

I am not talking about discarding anything! I was talking about disinfecting
everything properly before using it for other cats! Yes, the virus needs a
host but it does survive outside the body for a couple of hours, not even
mentioning the secondary bacterial, viral and fungal infections a Felv cats
can suffer from!
Why would you not be extra cautious for your other, or somebody elses cats!

Re: [Felvtalk] What to do after they die?

2010-11-07 Thread Peggy Verdonck
I'm sorry to hear about your cat! You have done all you can. I'm struggling
with trying to get a cat to eat right now myself. I'm force feeding her with
AD now. A couple of syringes at a time.

The Felv virus can only survive a couple of hours, but there are other
bacterias of secondary infections Felv cats can suffer from that can still
be around in the house and on the things your cat used.
My vet told me to disinfect everything you can wash and wipe down (like
bowls, litter boxes and blankets) with a bleach and water dilutions. All the
things I couldn't wash or wipe down (like the cat tree) I sprayed with
Lysol, several times.
But just to make sure I would wait several weeks before you give it someone
else.
