Many cats with feline leukemia can still have a good quality of life with a little extra monitoring and care. In general, cats who test positive should not be housed with cats who do not have the virus because it can be spread from direct contact with infected cats. However, there are feline leukemia vaccines that can protect other cats, so households with both positive and negative cats may be possible under the right circumstances and with the guidance of a family veterinarian.
