Our Current FIV+ Cats
Zorro was stray from Gardner who was being fed by a nice woman. He decided he wanted to come in but she couldn't keep him.
Zorro has tested positive for FIV. This means that the cat is more susceptible to colds and other conditions but can still live a long, healthy life. Many people adopt only FIV+ cats. That is a wonderful thing. What science is finding is that FIV+ cats can live in harmony with non FIV+ cats as long as the relationship is non combative. I.e. the cats get along nicely.
