Understanding Feline Leukemia

How is FeLV spread?

FeLV is spread from a positive cat to other cats through body secretions, including saliva, nasal secretions, urine, feces and milk from mother cats. This means that that FeLV can be spread through mutual grooming, bites, shared food/water bowls and litter boxes, and nursing. The virus does not survive outside of a cat’s body for more than a few hours and can be easily killed with regular washing/ sanitizing.
