He was taken to our vet. Chance is healthy and very friendly, but tested positive for FIV. As most of us know, this is not a death sentence. He could live a very long and healthy life with the virus as long as he's kept inside.
We're hoping someone is willing to offer this very sweet boy a home.
We know a couple of people who have had FIV+ cats with the rest of their cats. They never got FIV.
FIV is spread by blood transfusion or by a deep penetrating bite wound. Cats are usually exposed to FIV outside, by fighting for food, territory or for a mate. This rarely happens after the cats are neutered, brought inside and introduced properly. They should be separated for a while and introduced slowly.
Please give this wonderful boy a chance!
Chance is mostly white with orange on his head and tail.
