Nelo: FIV+ cats deserve loving homes

Please share me:

Beautiful Nelo was abandoned in Pego and when tested, was positive for FIV.  Previously it was thought that FIV cats had to live separately from other cats and, because of this, many shelters had a policy of putting these cats to sleep as they were too difficult to place. However, it is now known that FIV-positive cats can live with FIV-negative cats and not pass on the infection during normal day-to-day interaction.  Most infection transmission happens when cats fight and sterilisation of male cats reduces the likelihood of this happening.  Lucky Nelo was adopted by a lovely lady in the UK.
