Watch this space for news about our cats, and their stories, and other useful information.
This is Biscuit, he is FIV positive.
Biscuit will have contracted FIV becuase he wasnt neutered as a young cat and probably went off in search of a female in heat and encountered another un neutered male with FIV and fought. It can only be passed through a very deep bite. It is completely preventable if only he had been neutered. FIV+ cats can live long happy lives, they just need to be indoors as their immune system isnt as strong as that of a negative cat, so to prevent them picking up any germs. .
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.
