You should know that I have tested FIV positive, but please do not let that scare you. FIV positive cats tend to live good quality, long lives. The virus spreads via penetrating bite wounds between cats only. It has no effect on humans, no effect on dogs, no effect on any non-feline species. Just because I carry the virus does not mean that I am not a healthy cat.
Ideally I need a quiet, patient home without other cats or with a friendly FIV positive cat. For me to be a good addition to your family, you will need to patient with me early on, offering me the opportunity to slowly integrate into your home. Once I do, I know that we'll be great companions and I look forward to you saving me and showing me how great life with people can be. Will you stop by for a quiet, gentle visit and hopefully give me a chance to blossom in your home?
