Orson 💛

“My life’s story, so far, is rather inner’esting.  If you adopt me, we can sit and chit chat about it, over a nice hot cup of tuna juice.  Yeaaah, I’m FIV + tho it doesn’t bother me and I’m still a super-loving💗 young gent.”

Once thought to be dangerous, most FIV+ cats live a normal life. Unfortunately, there is currently no definitive cure for FIV. However, it is important to realize that while it is impossible to predict the survival of a given cat infected with FIV, cats infected with FIV can live very normal, healthy lives for many years if managed appropriately. For a healthy cat diagnosed with FIV, the most important management goals are to reduce their risk of acquiring secondary infections and prevent the spread of FIV to other cats. Both of these goals are best met by keeping cats indoors and isolated from other cats. Although FIV is similar to human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and causes a feline disease similar to acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) in humans, it is a highly species-specific virus that infects only felines. Thank you for considering opening your heart and home to such a sweet young man as Orson.💘
