Niki Cochran, Program Manager at Alley Cat Rescue The Community Cats Podcast

In this episode, Niki and Stacy debunk several commonly held myths about FeLV in particular, including the idea that FeLV is extremely contagious, and that cats and kittens with it always live shortened lifespans. They also talk about the idea that FeLV and FIV+ cats can in fact co-exist with negative cats in home (and colony) environments. Those cats are properly vaccinated and combo tested regularly, and have always remained negative.
