Meet Leo III!
Hi! My name is Leo! I am the most handsome, dapper gentleman you ever did see! My foster mama says I am a social butterfly, but I am most definitely a cat; so she's really silly! I love to talk and tell you about my day, and especially to beg you for treats. Yummy! I enjoy sleeping next to my foster mom and chilling out next to her while she watches TV. I also really enjoy playing follow the leader with her around the house. I haven't yet met dogs or kids, but I'm such a friendly boy, I'm sure I could get along with just about anyone. My foster Mom tells me I am FIV Positive (I guess that means I'm happy or something?) Leo III has tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), a condition that weakens a cat's immune system. FIV is only transmitted through blood transfusions, serious penetrating bite wounds, or intercourse (but of course all DPA cats are fixed!). Other cats cannot get FIV through casual contact with an FIV+ cat. It cannot be transmitted to humans, dogs, or any other pets in the home. This is by no means a death sentence, and most cats with FIV can live to spend many long, happy years with their families, but it does mean his immune system is weaker, making it extremely important to stay indoors, stay up to date on vaccines and preventatives, and be fed a balanced diet with regular vet visits. They can live their entire life without ever coming down with any symptoms of FIV. As long as they are not exposed to any other virus or bacteria that their weakened immune system can't handle, they can live healthy, normal lives!
