|Hello! Ruffy here! I have the FIV+ virus, as does Smokey, and we beleive the BUB.
We live with several non FIV+ cats, including at the moment Natalie, our Elderwise kitty, CK Angel Ryder, now a little over a year, Midnight, our newest, and our little foster guy, Calvin.
We have not passed on the virus. It can be passed through a deep bite wound, and even then, not always. It is mostly transmitted through tomcat fights when they are intact. We all run and jump and play here and non of our non FIV cats have ever tested positive....and that even includes the one time there was a catapalooza here and Natalie and Smokie got into it.
Vets who say this haven't studied enough on the variables of the virus! Some will tell people it's better to have their cats with it put to sleep...which means killed!!! Why? What have we done besides get something that we didn't ask for? And we're mostly peacable creatures...
There is so much misinformation about FIV+. Best Friends website has alot of info on it...but we are a 'mixed' household, and doing just fine, thank you.
