Cats with Feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV)
All fees are waived to approved adopters.
How Is FIV Transmitted?
What Are the Symptoms of FIV?
After the initial infection, the cat is often completely asymptomatic for many years. Infected cats who receive supportive medical care and are kept in a stress-free, indoor environment can live relatively comfortable lives for months to years before the disease reaches its chronic stages.
In the event that your cat is exhibiting symptoms you should contact your veterinarian.

- Dental disease
- Behavior change
- Skin redness or hair loss

- Frequent urination, straining to urinate or urinating outside of litter box
