FIV is a non-issue and there is no guarantee that either the Mom or babies 
contracted FIV from the male.  We had two outside ferals and the male had FIV, 
the female was pregnant when we caught her and had her fixed, she tested 
negative and after living outside with Charlie for a year (he went missing this 
past summer and we brought SuzieQ inside), she tested negative when we brought 
her inside.  Besides, even cats WITH FIV live a long and healthy life and the 
chances of giving it to another cat (if they are all fixed) is very slim.  FIV 
is INFECTIOUS, not contagious, big big difference.  You don't "catch" HIV from 
living with someone with HIV, only through blood and bodily fluids, same thing 
with FIV.

Please DO  NOT WORRY – if she or “husband” are FIV+, the kittens will be just 
Your vet knows NOTHING about FIV!  It’s a lot different than FeLV!!!!
I can guarantee that they will be fine.
DO NOT ABORT THIS LATE – each baby has to be taken out and killed!
I don’t have time to write now, but I can e-mail you personally later, if 
that’s OK!
I have had dozens of FIV mothers whose babies were ALL fine!

i have just found out tht my cat is pregnant 8.5wks to a stray that tested 
positive for feline aids
i was due to have her fixed but was a little to late as she is 8mths now.
The vet wants me to take her in to get an abortion is this the only way???
Do i have no other options?Is this the best thing to do??
