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.

is sweet and loving with a lot of joy in her heart. Even though has tested positive for the Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV), she is capable of living a full, healthy life. This virus can suppress his immune system, potentially making her more susceptible to other infections. While there is no cure for FeLV, with regular veterinary care cats can go on to live a relatively healthy and long lifestyle. The disease can be transmissible to other cats, but not to people or other species. Ideally, FeLV-positive cats should either live with other cats that have tested positive for FeLV to reduce the risk of spreading the disease or in a single cat household.
