FIV can only be transmitted through deep bite wounds that draw blood. It can not be transmitted through normal casual contact such as cleaning each other. It can not be caught by sharing a food dish or litter box, so as long as Mittens is with non-aggressive cats, and they are properly introduced, she can safely coexist with other non-FIV+ cats.
Her birthdate was estimated to be May 1, 2014.
Shadow has tested negative for feline leukemia but is positive for FIV, has been dewormed, is up to date with all shots and spayed She requires a home where she will never be declawed, or allowed to go outside. If you would like to find out more about giving Shadow the home she deserves, please call Cari at 540 226-0050 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We answer emails as quickly as possible, but calling for info will be much faster.
Mittens is bummed! She was adopted a year ago and lived happily until she was accidentally let out of the house; when we helped recover her, her human decided it was too stressful to keep close tabs on her :-( Now Mittens is back with us hoping for a home where she will be cherished for her sweet personality and loving heart.
