If anybody remembers my post in the New Cats on the Block, it said i had Kricket, was a bottle raised kitten, who tested positive for FIV at 3 months old. Well that 6 month point was reached and it was time to retest Kricket, well after being a decent blood donor at work (i work as a vet asst.) we did a FeLV/FIV snap test done, 10 minutes later and the results were there......She was NEGATIVE!!! It so made my day and all my worries for the last 3 months we released as a huge smile and the weight off my shoulders. As a treat i jumped on ebay and ended up buying her an even bigger cat tree. (give me a day and i'll get them posted) I thought everybody might like to know how even though a kitten tests positive while 3 months or younger, at that 6 month point it is VERY important to retest. This is not the first case I've seen go like this since working at the hospital.
