The happy ending story of five kittens in Orlando who tested FIV+

This is the happy ending story of five kittens in the Orlando, Florida area who tested FIV+ when they were eight weeks old. Thanks to Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando and foster mom Lisa Krakosky, all have been adopted!

Until September 7th I will give 10 cents to an animal charity for every comment. It is a way to help animal welfare without much effort at no cost. Comments help this website too, which is about animal welfare.

These little guys (and one little girl) were available through the Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando. Liam, Lucas, Ethan, Emma and Mason tested unfortunately tested posted for FIV. 

On rare occasions, those results may hold true, but it’s also likely it will turn out to have been a false positive caused by their mom’s antibodies. The little guys should be retested when they’re 6 months old to know for certain.

The little guys should be retested when they’re 6 months old to know for certain. In the meantime, social networkers did their best, not only in sharing this beautiful family but in dispelling some of the myths associated with FIV+ cats.

Thanks to everyone’s involvement, these kittens spent less than a week in the shelter.

The mission statement for Pet Alliance of Greater Orlando is to educate, shelter, place, and heal pets and their families with compassionate, responsible care maintained to the very highest professional standards.

Those looking to add a cat or kitten to the family shouldn’t overlook one who has tested FIV+. I personally have a senior FIV+ cat who doesn’t realize he’s “different” than any of our other cats.

As the poster above says, good nutrition and a visit to the vet at the very first sign of illness will ensure an infected cat a long, happy and NORMAL life.

  1. I have a few FIV cats right now. I have, also, had 2 kittens that tested positive at 12 weeks and negative at 4 months.
    I’m not concerned about FIV at all. It’s not really easily contracted from one cat to another. I don’t treat my affected cats any differently from the others.
    There are so many more horrible conditions, like FIP, that make FIV sort of insignificant.

  2. I’ve had several FIV+ kitties. And a couple of them were fighters. I have never had an FIV cat pass the disease to another cat in the house. And most of them were absolute lovers of all living things. And they lived to a ripe old age.
