POOKIE is going to be retested to see if in fact he is still FIV+. FIV is only relevant to cats, no other species, and it is ONLY transmissible via deep-bite wounds. It is NOT transmitted by casual contact! While FIV cats might have a slightly increased risk of infection due to a compromised immune system and perhaps require a slightly longer course of antibiotic treatment to get better, they have about the same chance of living a long life as uninfected cats - so don't deny yourself his love! YOU need this big softie and he needs a loving furrever home !
POOKIE is NOT located at the Sanctuary. Please contact Foster Mom MARYANN at 412-537-5556 to discuss arrangements to meet POOKIE very soon!
