Q. My kitten recently died from felv, how long should I wait to get a new career? I was told by someone that the virus can be active in my home for 6 mo
A. The feline leukemia virus will survive less than a few hours outside a cat's body under normal household conditions. Sanitize or replace all bowls, toys and litterboxes. Hard, non porous surface can be cleansed with a 1:20 dilution of household bleach and water. Allow for a 20 minute contact time before drying. Test all cats coming into the home.
