Cody has come a long way since his foster found him on the street eating garbage, scratched up and injured. He has healed wonderfully and is coming into his own as a house cat. Cody is FIV positive.
What Should You Know About FIV:
Humans nor dogs can catch FIV: It is exclusively a feline virus.
Cats can only spread it to other cats by blood: This means a deep, deep bite down to the gums or a very deep scratch down to the claw cuticle. Playful wrestling will not warrant this, only very rough, out-to-kill fights, which is why many shelter cats who have lived on the streets, unfortunately, have contracted it. An FIV+ cat is very unlikely to spread the virus to an FIV- cat while play-fighting.
FIV is not a "sickness": There are no medications or special treatment of any kind required. There is no medication required for the majority of their life. All FIV does is lower a cat's immune system, so he should not go outside. This is the only major stipulation of owning an FIV+ cat. He should be indoors, and if you notice something amiss, the cat should be taken to a vet sooner rather than later since they have low immune systems. Otherwise, nothing about owning an FIV+ cat takes extra effort or expense during their good years. They are just like normal cats.
Cody would benefit from a loving, patient family who understands that he might need some time to acclimate to his new home.
