Hi I’m Winston. I found myself all alone outside and made my way to a feral colony where a very nice man was feeding all the cats. After a while of seeing me around he decided that I must have had a home at some point since I am quite a friendly guy. Lucky for me he took me to King Street Cats with the promise they would find me a furever home. I don’t ask for much. Just a comfy bed, some yummy food, some gentle company and a window to look out of.  Do I sound like the guy for you. 
 
Since I spent so much time outside, I am FIV+, which means that I have Feline Immunodeficiency Virus.
Don't go away! - I am  "Positively Adoptable"  and going to make someone a  very  happy purrson!
  • FIV is not the same as Feline AIDS.
  • It is not the same as the human forms of HIV or AIDS.
  • You cannot catch it, and my care requirements are no different from what any cat lover does for his or her cat companions.
  • "Feline AIDS" is a condition which may (or may not) develop at the end of a cat's life. An FIV+ cat does not necessarily develop Feline AIDS.
  • FIV can only be spread from one cat to another cat through deep-puncture bite wounds. 
Here's what I'll need in terms of care :
  1. I'll need you to feed me a high quality WET, CANNED diet (preferably grain-free, high-protein)
  2. Come to know my behaviors so that you can notice changes that may be health-related, develop a good working relationship with a veterinarian who is current on FIV issues,
  3. Seek that veterinarian's assistance if you notice any changes in my behavior.
That's all. Wouldn't you do that for any kitty? I thought so!
