What are the odds of my kitten having aids and leukemia at the same time?

I know that feline leukemia is very common but am concerned that the doctor also thinks she has aids.

Often these are of the same illness. A cat with a suppressed immune system is open to both, and both illnesses can be mistaken for the other- it's part of the same catch-all syndrome, just like humans with immuno-suppressed illnesses.

While it is not impossible for a cat with feline leukemia to also contract feline AIDS, the two are not intrinsically connected despite both being autoimmune diseases. Many cats with feline AIDS never develop feline leukemia, and vice-versa. Even cats that acquire both can live many years in good health.
