Hello,
Well I am usually on the kitten board but thought I'd see if anyone here knew about different types of feline lukemia. I work with a local rescue group and am currently caring for two cats with feluk. One was diagnosed as a kitten and is now about a year old, she is healthy and fat- chubby actually from being in a cage at the shelter. They hate to cage her but had nowhere to place her until now since she is feluk positive.
The other is a 4 month old kitten who is closer to the size of a 3 month old because of the illnesses she suffered earlier in her little life. She nearly died twice and now she has come through a parasite invasion and two upper respiratory infections. She has no signs of illness and is eating, playing, etc. She just has permanently wobbly legs which the vet thinks are the result of brain damage from being sick.
I have heard there are different types of FELUK, types that are more severe and types that are more benign. Anyone know about that?
I would love to adopt these two out as special needs kitties but want to be able to tell their new owners what type they have and what their possible life expectancy could be. If I knew more about the different types and how they are diagnosed it would be helpful.
Thanks for reading.
-Laura
