Cats with FIV make ideal indoor pets Cats Protection’s Anglia Coastal is appealing to would-be cat owners to give a loving indoor-only home to a cat with the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. Anglia Coastal branch currently has one FIV-positive cat, Buster, and we are keen to find him permanent home.

FIV is a virus in cats that is similar to the human virus HIV, however, FIV does not infect humans. FIV-positive cats and kittens can make fabulous indoor pets and the Anglia Coastal Branch is keen to point out that they have plenty to offer to a new owner. FIV-positive cats can make fabulous companions as they remain indoors close to their owner and are particularly suited to flats and houses without gardens.FIV-positive cats can lead normal lives and remain healthy for many years. Keeping FIV positive cats indoors, which also reduces their risk of spreading infection to other cats, lowers their chance of succumbing to other infectious diseases, to which they may be more susceptible. As medical advances are made, FIV-positive cats can now have longer life spans than previously expected. Buster is a great example of an FIV-positive cat that would make a fabulous pet for a kind hearted person who is able to provide him with special care if required. If you can offer Buster, then please email or fill in the form under his profile
