I jst found out that my 1 yr old baby has feline luekemia. I am desperate to fing out some information on what others have done to make their baby comfortable and happy. The only thing that he is eating is baby food which my vet suggested..and not really drinking either. I have to trick him to drink. They have out him on clavamox to get rid of what ever infection that he has now. I am not sure what to do. No one that i know has ever had a cat that is positive. If someone could gove me some help Nebber and I would appreciate it.
Keep him away from any other cats. It is highly contagious. So keep him indoors so he can't spread the disease. Positive tested cats can live long lives. Their immune systems are threatened, so indoors only will keep him with a healthy life. You will not be doing anyone or any other cats any favors if you let him outside. Your cat can transmit it to a very healthy cat. It is only transmitted to other cats. Not to dogs or to humans.
I had a cat with feline leukemia. My other cat had to get vaccinations each year to prevent becoming infected, but they lived together very happily. Callie lived for 4 years before she became very sick from leukemia.
