My name is MAGNUS. I have something called Feline Immunodeficiency Virus, or FIV. I know it sounds scary, but it's really not. Basically, it just means my immune system is not as strong, so if I get sick, it will take me longer to get better than a non-FIV cat.
Here is more info about FIV
How do cats get the feline immunodeficiency virus?
The most common route of infection is a deep bite wound from an FIV-positive cat to another cat. It can also be transmitted via blood, in utero and from the milk of an infected mother cat. It is very rare for cats to get FIV just from being around infected cats, sharing food bowls, or from a person touching an FIV-positive cat and then touching an FIV-negative cat. Many FIV-positive cats and FIV-negative cats live together in the same home for years without spreading the virus to the non-infected cats.
Can FIV be treated?
There are no proven treatments to rid a cat of FIV. Most FIV-positive cats handle the disease well, but it is important to concentrate on treating the secondary illnesses.
Can cats with the virus have a good and long life?
Yes, FIV-positive cats can live normal lives, both in quality and duration. They just need to be monitored for infections and dental issues. But if theyÃ¢ÂÂre well cared for, they can be healthy, happy, wonderful pets.
Can FIV-negative and FIV-positive cats live together?
Yes, as long as the cats get along and do not fight. The risk of an FIV-positive cat spreading the virus to an FIV-negative cat can be minimized by putting both cats in separate rooms until you are confident that they will not fight with each other.
