found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, a special needs pet, and up to date with shots.
Merlin is FIV positive, which is a virus he carries that causes him to have a suppressed immune system. However, cats with FIV often live long, full lives without issue. There are no medicines needed, one just needs to follow standard vet care recommendations (annual check-ups, and dental cleanings, as advised by your vet). FIV is NOT transferable to humans or dogs, but IS transferable to other cats, mainly through a bite wound (saliva needs to enter blood stream), so it is important that if you already have a cat, or will be adding more than one, that they all like each other. Cats that get along, can share food/water bowls without issue. If Merlin is your only kitty or you have other FIV+ kitties (which would be the best home environment) then of course, there is no concern. Please feel free to contact the foster if you have any questions.
