Hi there. I like to take things pretty slow - I'm in no great hurry to get anywhere - except perhaps your lap for some love and affection. I adore attention. If you want a relaxed companion, someone to kick back and cuddle with after a hard day's work, I'm the cat for you.
My care has been sponsored by Fang Hong!
Yes, I've got my fair share of health waivers, but the amount of love I would have in return for you caring for me could easily help them to be overlooked. My eye looks a bit odd, but that's just from an old issue that led to some corneal scarring. It doesn't bother me.
FIV positive cats frequently are healthy for many years, and may even live a full life span. Because FIV affects the immune systems in cats, they can be more vulnerable to other infections that may cause severe illness due to a weakened immune system. It is therefore recommended to keep cats with FIV indoors to minimize exposure to outdoor cats, and or infections/diseases/parasites.
If you have other cats in your home FIV can be transmitted only if there is fighting with deep biting, or mating behaviors shared with a positive cat.
Cats that peacefully co-exist without any biting or mating are at no risk of becoming infected with FIV.
* Plasma Cell Pododermatitis
This cat has been diagnosed with a condition caused plasma cell pododermatitis - a foot pad disease found mostly in cats. This is an immune-mediated condition and the cause is unknown. We have tested this cat for the feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) which may have a link to this disease, and he has tested Positive. He is currently receiving an antibiotic called Doxycyline - and he may need to receive this antibiotic for up to 10 weeks (we will provide you with enough to help in the beginning.)
This condition may go into remission; however, this condition will require lifelong management and monitoring.
It will be my adoptive family's responsibility to seek veterinary care for these conditions (mainly for annual updates/rechecks) and develop an ongoing plan that seems fit for me.
