Tabitha is spayed, litterbox trained, is up to date on vaccinations and tested negative for FeLV, but positive for FIV. FIV stands for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. FIV can suppress the immune system but most cats live very long and healthy lives with FIV. Our volunteers would be happy to discuss this condition with you. FIV is primarily spread through deep bite wounds. FIV is not spread by sharing litter boxes or food bowls. It is also not spread by cats cuddling or playing with each other (so FIV cats can in many cases live in homes with non-FIV cats). FIV cannot be spread to people or to non-cat pets such as dogs. FIV+ cats are sweet, funny, affectionate, and playful, just as any other cat!
