Re: Advice re. adopting elderly cat with FIV

I don't think his FIV status is the issue. It is his age and, as with any elderly cat, the likelihood that he will need vet care in the near to medium term future. If you are not in a position to take this on I would, reluctantly, say not to adopt him. Having said this, many rescues will stand rescu...

Cats now safe with me. I will be taking them up to Argyll in a couple of weeks. Lady paid for them to be vaccinated and the kitten to be neutered. One tabby (2 years old called Fluffy), a pastel tortie (7 years old called Polly) and all black fluffy kitten called Spike (sooooo cute)

Also, date they have to be moved by, how long they are likely to be needing fostered for, are you in a position to contribute towards food/litter/vet bills. Are you looking to rehome them or definitely want them back when you are settled.

Re: Help needed Urgently

Sorry to hear of your situation. Perhaps it might help if you could give a bit more specific information about the cats: neutered/chipped/vaccinated. male/female. Ages. Good with other cats/dogs/children. It all might help persuade someone to help.

I echo what HRH Fluffy has said. I have a number of FIV+ and FIV- cats living together. Re sharing food bowls. As a very fragile virus it only survives out of the body for a few seconds. Therefore, the chances of the virus spreading this way, or by mutual grooming, is very remote. What people often ...

Very concerned about this poor old boy. You say he has done 'serious damage in the past', so this is not a new thing. What has triggered his eviction at this specific point in time?

Re: How do we know when a cat is a true stray???

It is a difficult one. Helping a stray or catnapping someone's cat? Personally, if a cat isn't neutered and isn't chipped I would consider it a stray, have it vetchecked and neutered and release back. If it keeps coming round I would ask around, put up posters etc. If no response then I would keep o...
