    Just because a cat or kitten's test comes up positive DOES NOT MEAN they actually have it. TOO MANY VETS EUTHANIZE on a positive test titer when it could be that the cat was only recently "exposed" and is now fighting off teh disease. Which most of them do and live long healthy lives. It is sadly that too many vets are not well versed in the meanings of positives on initial tests. The tests should ALWAYS be done a second time following a 2-3 month period. I am SHOCKED that you do not mention this fact to new kitten parents. This can be a traumatic and devastating situation and the only one to ultimately lose is the cat who could be killed for no reason!!! There are a LOT OF FALSE POSITIVES on initial testing.
