Kip is a total lover boy and likes humans of all ages including kids and also was raised with dogs. He is a super chill guy who would love to call your home his own without other cats. Kip does have feline immunodeficiency virus otherwise known as FIV. FIV is a virus that attacks the immune system. While not a death sentence for these cats, catching a cold or other virus can be much harder on them to clear. FIV is contracted by deep bite wounds or mama cat. We really don’t know how he contracted it as he was a bottled kitten and his siblings all tested negative. There is usually nothing different in caring for them then any other cat. This is a feline virus that humans can not get. There is no medications or special treatment needed for a FIV cat. Just like with your own cat
if you see something amiss they should go to a vet sooner rather than later because of a lower immune system. He should stay a indoor cat only. Otherwise, nothing about owning a FIV positive cat take any extra effort or expense during their good years! Please give Kip a chance!
