Eddie is an absolute cool cat. He isn't fazed by anything. Dog friendly, cat friendly, kid friendly, he is super low maintenance.
He loves his food but isn't demanding. Loves a pat, but isn't in your face either.
Eddie would suit any family. He currently lives with 2 other cats and 2 dogs and gets along well with everybody. Eddie would like to be an indoor only cat.
Eddie has tested positive for FIV. This is a cat-only virus - humans and other animals can't catch it. It is most commonly transmitted to other cats by a very deep bite wound. It is not transmitted from sharing food and water bowls, bedding, grooming or playing.
Many FIV+ cats live long, healthy lives and don’t develop any symptoms. In fact, studies have found that FIV+ cats often outlive their FIV- friends.
http://www.catchat.org/fiv.html "A ten-year FIV Monitoring Project was carried out at Glasgow Veterinary School involving 26 cats. The results indicated that a higher percentage of FIV negative cats died during the study period than FIV positive cats, and that FIV infection did not affect the cats' life expectancy.
Dr Diane D. Addie (Lecturer in Veterinary Virology, University of Glasgow) said "at least 3 studies in FIV positive cats have shown a life span equal to uninfected cats."
A fourteen year study by Maureen Hutchison B.Sc, BVMS, MRCVS (veterinary adviser to the Cat Action Trust) found that FIV-positive cats are more likely to die by being killed in road accidents or to be alive and well into their twilight years than they are to die from any FIV related condition."
Further studies have found that the risk of FIV transmission from an FIV+ cat to an FIV- cat is negligible, provided there is no serious aggression. It is not transmitted from sharing food and water bowls, bedding, grooming or playing.
As Eddie gets on well with other cats, unless your existing cat is very aggressive towards Eddie, they will very likely retain their FIV- status.
