I still have Mitt, the kitten I found in October who tested positive. He seems to be healthy at this time and  around 7-8 months old. I am thinking I should have him neutered but the local humane society refused to do surgery on a positive cat, claiming surgery could trigger an immune system

I came across this site, having just been informed by the vet that the abandoned kitten I took in three weeks ago. Before I took it to the vet,  I have been keeping it in a separate room but admit that since it seemed so healthy I let it out for little walks.  I have 4 cats over 12 years old.
