Today I brought a new 15 year old cat home from the shelter.  He is a very 
sweet flame point  FIV positive.  I know next to nothing about FIV except that 
it is not supposed to be as easy to transmit as feline leukemia..  Does anyone 
have any information or links for FIV?  He seems very healty except for goopy 
eyes.  He is going to get Wellness food with lysine mixed into it.
Thanks for any advise!

My understanding is FIV is transmittable only via a deep cat bite (cat to
cat). I am sure there is lots more info at the link provided!

Re: [Felvtalk] Adopted an FIV+

2009-07-04 Thread Gloria B. Lane
There are a couple of other FIV groups too.  At any rate, seems like  
the transmission is always said to be via very deep bite wound, and I  
never have neutered cats do that.  I of course mix my FIV cats - they  
never get sick, do very well.  They're the best!

Re: [Felvtalk] Adopted an FIV+

2009-07-04 Thread LauraM
I have 2 FIV who I keep with 2 FeLV+. Of course the FIVs are vaccinated for 
FeLV. They are the sweetest cats. I have always heard that transmission is 
through deep bites, so I've never been worried about the others catching it.
They live in the garage away from my other cats, which some people think is 
horrible, but it's a heated garage (I keep tortoises in it in the winter and 
aquatic turtles in there year round) and it stays very cool in the summer 
thanks to big trees and a cement floor. There are 3 big windows and the 
cats love watching the turtles inside and the birds and frogs outside. Their 
newest source of entertainment is a large black rat snake who seems to have 
taken up residence in the garage. Every time I try to catch the snake, he 
slithers off under a turtle tank or something, but he sure keeps the kitties 
occupied!

Be careful of the snake and cats.  If he is big enough, he could cause  
a lot of harm.


The garage sounds wonderful.  Copper and Thomas Cougar and Dixie  
before them loved my attached garage.  The boys are constantly asking  
for patrol time there and, when they have their way (which is most of  
the time) they spend  hours there daily.  I don't know what the lure  
is but all three cats wanted to be in the garage.
