This cip was recorded on September 26, 2009 – Grey is a beauttiful tabby boy, found by Sharon from Johns Hopkins University (the ‘tute’s landlord!). Sharon knows ‘tute folks and former ‘tute folk (including me, in a “it’s a small world after all” moment) and so we agreed to sponsor this terrific kitteh! Grey tested positive for FIV but over the months has shown absolutely NO sign of the disease. As you may know, the sad fact is that if a kitteh was innoculated against FIV they will test positive for it because they now have developed antibodies to the disease. FIV is terribly misunderstood (there is a lot of misinformation floating around) and adopting an FIV positive cat is usually quite safe. We are looking for a special kind of person to open their hearts and homes to Grey, our little lover! Go on over to hubblespacepaws.blogspot.com to learn more about Grey and the scoop about bringing an FIV positive kitteh into your home. It’s a lot safer than most folks think! Please note: Space Paws is NOT sponsored by STScI or AURA, Inc. (got to protect the ‘tute, you know!!).

“Meow…my name is Vincent and I am looking for my forever home. I am a very sweet cat who enjoys being petted and pampered. Like some of my buddies here at the shelter, they tell me that I am FIV positive. My vet said that FIV infected cats can lead normal lives with proper care. I didn`t know anything about this FIV business until I read it on my chart. I am seeking a home where I can get the love and care I need. Can you help me? If you are interested in me, or if you have any questions,please speak to one of our friendly adoption counselors. Thanks for considering a shelter pet! Lisa Tudor, Executive Director of the nationally recognized TNR organization Indyferal, has 2 FIV+ cats integrated with her non-FIV+ cats. I have 2 FIV+ cats, June who is 14 yrs old and Buddy who is 8 yrs old. I have had June for 7 years and not one of my other cats have tested positive for FIV+. I think the key is to properly introduce new cats into the household safely to avoid fighting. If cats are not aggressive or fighting it is extremely unlikely that the non-FIV+ cats will be infected.
