Octavius is a handsome guy! He is very sweet and will be a great companion! He is FIV positive.Cats infected with feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) may not show symptoms until years after the initial infection occurred. Although the virus is slow-acting, a cat’s immune system is severely weakened once the disease takes hold. This makes the cat susceptible to various secondary infections. Infected cats receiving supportive medical care and kept in a stress-free, indoor environment can live relatively comfortable lives for months to years before the disease reaches its chronic stages. Cats with FIV have been known to live long and happy lives just as cats without FIV.

  • FIV is mainly passed from cat to cat through deep bite wounds, the kind that usually occur outdoors during aggressive fights and territorial disputes—a perfect reason to keep your cat inside.
  • Another, less common mode of transmission is from an FIV-infected mother cat to her kitten. FIV does not seem to be commonly spread through sharing food bowls and litter boxes, social grooming, sneezing and other casual modes of contact.
  • Although any feline is susceptible, free-roaming, outdoor intact male cats who fight most frequently contract the disease. Cats who live indoors are the least likely to be infected.

Please note:  FIV cannot be transmitted from cat to human, only from cat to cat.

Octavius can live with other FIV negative cats as long as the cats don't fight. Octavius must be kept indoors to reduce his risk of getting sick. Please give Octavius a chance!
