Re: Newly Diagnosed Late Stage FIV - 4 Year Old Kitty

Just letting everyone know how Merlin's doing. We took him back to the vet after confirmation that his insurance company would cover his FIV treatments (as long as it doesn't relate to his cat flu which he had from his time on the streets before he came to me). His second blood tests showed low plat...

Re: Newly Diagnosed Late Stage FIV - 4 Year Old Kitty

Hi Bobby's Girl, Thanks! Lil Merlin is my best friend, he's my first kitty and he's kept me company through some tough times. I was devastated when I found out, I couldn't stop crying, and it was the day before one of my biggest university exams too. So I went into the exam like a blubbering idiot :...

Re: Newly Diagnosed Late Stage FIV - 4 Year Old Kitty

Haha, thanks, he's got what we like to refer to as a pinhead! He's still got a tiny kitten head on a bigger cat's body.

Re: Newly Diagnosed Late Stage FIV - 4 Year Old Kitty

Hi Janey I've already had a good look through this information. It was the only thing that got me to calm down after the vet told me Merlin only had a year or so left. It was really, really helpful. So thank you =)

Newly Diagnosed Late Stage FIV - 4 Year Old Kitty

Hi guys, I came across this forum whilst researching FIV and thought you all might be the best source of information due to your collective experiences with FIV. I took my 4 year old male tabby, Merlin, to the vets last week as his eye was weepy and he had a bit of a runny nose. This is not uncommon...
