What you need to know before adopting an FIV+ Cat

Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) is a very common disease found in cats throughout Australia. It’s spread via deep bite wounds, making it prevalent in free-roaming and stray cats and therefore, cats who often find themselves in shelters.
Due to a lack of knowledge and some common misconceptions, FIV positive cats are so often overlooked when it comes to adoptions despite the fact that they can live long and healthy lives, just like any other cat!
