Please read down to the bottom of this kitty's page to find out more details about its personality. All of our kittens must have a kitten, cat and/or dog companion, unless otherwise noted. In some cases, our adults may need to have a companion but read the description as it will be listed there. Our kittens and cats are not adopted on a first come, first serve basis. Completing an application does not guarantee an adoption.  We make an effort to match the perfect person or family with each cat/kitten. If there are two names together, those are bonded cats and we will not separate them.

As long as cats with FIV are not exposed to diseases that their immune system can't handle, they can live perfectly normal lives. And they can only pass the virus on to other cats through a serious, penetrating bite wound. So unless your cats at home routinely tear each other to pieces, it's not a problem. (And if your cats are tearing each other up, that's probably a bigger problem!)

Sweet Sport was seen being put out of a car on the West Orange Trail. The lady who lives across the street who saw this took him in and contacted Candy's Cats to help. Sport is a gentle extremely sweet boy who has tested Positive for FIV and is ready for a family who will give him the love his deserves. 

FIV stands for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus. It's a lentivirus, meaning that it progresses very slowly, gradually affecting a cat's immune system. It is passed through blood transfusions and through serious, penetrating bite wounds - mainly by stray, intact tom cats. The most well-known lentivirus in humans is HIV. But the two are not at all the same, and you can't get FIV from a cat. In fact, the only thing about FIV that you can catch is a bad case of the rumors.
