Freyja is a beautiful white & tabby girl who has tested + for FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus). She came to us after she had a bad reaction some flea medicine. Her owner had only had her a short time and could not afford to take her the vet. After a bath, good food, and time to heal, she is doing great. Her name means "Lady" in Old Norse where she is a goddess of fertility and love. She was born in August 2011.
Freyja is mostly white with a tabby spot on top of her head and her tail. She is very loving and likes to curl up in your lap and purr. She is calm but can be timid at first with a new environment. She currently shares our laundry room with another FIV+ cat name Miller. They both keep to themselves and only "hang out" together when there are people in the room to visit. She is more interested in socializing with people than making friends with other cats but will share her room and bedding peacefully:)
FIV is a manageable disease that is frequently misunderstood; most FIV+ cats live long happy, healthy lives with proper care. Freyja is as healthy as can be and shows absolutely no signs of illness. FIV is spread through mating and deep bites, so is very unlikely to be spread with simple contact.
For FIV cats with no other symptoms, and otherwise generally good health, management of FIV involves a proper diet and prompt, prompt treatment of infections and other conditions as they crop up throughout life. Your veterinarian will work with you to establish a plan to keep Freyja healthy. She will need to be an inside only cat and flea control is important, as fleas transmit a number of other parasites and flea bites themselves can become infected, which would be a cause for concern.
