I'm looking to adopt a kitty from our local shelter who is FIV+. That is not the issue, as I have an FIV+ kitty, Honeybun. My concern is that they are now housing ALL the FIV+ and FeLV+ cats together!! I know Feline Leukemia is more easily transmittable than FIV, and so I'm really concerned about how they are housing their cats. They said that previously they were all in cages, and at least now they have a free roaming room... but at what cost to the FIV+ cats???
They are going to do a feline leukemia test on my guy before I take him home on Tuesday, but gosh.... what if it doesn't show up for 3 months like it sometimes does?? I don't want to infect the rest of my cats, but I can't quarantine Laslo either. I'm going to rename him, and call him Calloway, like the tuxie I had before, cause he could be his twin!! I just like the name better as well.
Any thoughts about the feline leukemia deal?
