Watch this space for news about our cats, and their stories, and other useful information.
Most people don't realise that most cats with FIV have a strong immune system.
Most FIV cats are perfectly healthy for most of their lives. Even for those who start to show effects, most infections can be handled by appropriate medications.
FIV positive cats can have, and deserve to have, a long and healthy life. Like all cats, they need careful attention to their general health and diet, but this is no more than any cat should receive.
A properly cared for FIV cat need not have a shortened life expectancy.
This is the amazing Megan who climbed the Acropolis in Greece Saturday to raise money for our little sanctuary. She really is one extraordinary little lady to think of helping our cats like that. She raised a fantastic £150. Thank you so meowch Megan 😻😻 well done.
Also her dad Rhys who runs a cafe within woodland walk garden centre, raised a further £180 😸 all of this will go to the healthcare of our furry residents.
What a fabulous compassionate family. Thank you. 😻
Thank you to everyone who sponsored Megan and donated at her dads cafe too.
This is Rupert (a friend of Big Joe). Rupert has FIV.
A lot of people think that cats with FIV can't go outside, full stop. However, that's a myth. If the weather is fine and your cat is in good health, they are allowed to be outside in a controlled environment. They can't wander alone or be free to escape, as they can potentially spread the virus, or become unwell.
Rupert and William (both FIV cats) have been adopted by Hayley. Thank you Hayley!
