Hello! We are reaching out to anyone who can foster or give a permanent home to a neutered male FIV positive kitty! 'Mac and Cheeks' is extremely affectionate towards people but is not a fan of dogs and is approximately 4 years old. He was left on the front door step at Cole Park Veterinary Hospital in a carrier. When he came to us he was not neutered, had numerous broken teeth, fleas, ear mites and wounds right above his ears from scratching so much. We've since neutered and vaccinated him, removed his broken teeth, dewormed him, started him on flea prevention and have gotten rid of his ear mites. His wounds are healing very nicely! While under anesthesia for his dental we found that at some point his jaw had been broken along with one of his rear legs and one front leg. This poor guy has had a tough short life. Mac and Cheeks seems very happy indoors and also uses his litter box well.
If anyone is interested in helping this sweetheart out please call Cole Park Veterinary Hospital at (919) 929-3352.
FIV cats can live normal lives and can live safely with other non-FIV cats if they do not fight with each other and are spayed/neutered. For information about FIV please take a look at http://bestfriends.org/resources/fiv-cats-faqs and http://www.vet.cornell.edu/fhc/Health_Information/brochure_fiv.cfm
