Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
My wife was fearful about leukemia and as a doctor I usually try to alleviate that fear by telling my patients that it most likely is not the worst but a viral illness that will go away. I wouldn't start out with yes you could have AIDS and this is how you test for it. Since I tried to make her feel better when she read your response starting with yes your cat could have leukemia I immediately lost her and she just started crying. When in fact the cat just had a simple URI and is fine but that was a bad day made worse by this web site. Good idea though.
