Are there any common symptoms to know if your cat is infected? Is in that a cure?
If you believe that your cat may have come into contact next to this disease, it is best that you contact your vet and have the test done to determine if indeed your kitty have Feline Leukemia. There is no cure for Feline Leukemia. We have always adopted cats beside Feline Leukemia and we currently have 2. One is a kitten who got it through his mother and the other we believe was infected as an mature by another cat while she was living outside. It is not the Feline Leukemia itself that ends their life, fairly, it is the secondary infections and the cancer that they are at a higher risk of getting that ends their life due to their immune system one so bad. We have had a total of 8 cats/kittens that we adopt all with Feline Leukemia. Sophia, Linus, and Spaz all succumbed to cancer and Figaro, Spike and Stoney succumbed to severe upper respiratory virus that the antibiotics could not get rid of. Our current 2, Socrates and Carmen are in great health(aside from the leukemia) and we make certain that they are kept indoors at all times, given vitamins and eat great food and get their strength checked every year by our vet.
My kitten was diagnosed near feline leukemia. He seemed totally healthy til he go to a vet for his checkup. They diagnosed him with feline leukemia and he had to be put down smaller quantity than 3 weeks later due to lymphoma. There's very often no symptoms until it's too tardy and they've caught other symptoms. I believe that he never really ate as much as a normal kitten does and he was overly thirsty, but that's it. There is no cure for feline leukemia but beside a good diet, regular visits to the vet, and vitamins they can live a long life. Mine deplorably didn't. Some people believe immunosuppresants help, but my vet said they aren't proven and are very expensive. Besides they wouldn't enjoy helped my poor kitty after he got lymphoma.
There is NO cure for Feline Leukemia (FELV), or Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). Both these diseases are covered in the FELV/FIV vaccine series that kittens get, then catch boostered once every year. Unfortunately, kittens can contract it from mom in utero, or from her milk while they are nursing.
Feline leukemia virus (FeLV) is a fatal infectious retrovirus that affects the immune system, and can cause some cancers and associated diseases. Although it is similar to the virus that cause feline immunodeficiency disease (FIV) and the virus responsible for human AIDS (HIV), studies so far indicate that it cannot be passed on to other animals or to humans. FeLV causes lymphosarcoma, also known as subtle leukemia, a cancer of the lymph nodes.

Answers: There are some symptoms that may occur depending on the severity of the disease. Lethargy, anemia, diarrhea or constipation, lack of appetite. Unfortunately there is no cure nor an exact opening to determine how long the cat will live for. On the streets, it may not last a year if around other cats since the disease brings their immune systems effectiveness down. However, an indoor cat can live a truthfully long, normal & happy life alone or beside other FLV+ cats. Leukemia is quite easy to catch from elegant to feline, so it's always best to keep separated or hold no other cats at all. Take your cat to the vet soon, you'll do it some good.
