    A quote from the article:

    “In our experience, FIV positive cats can have, and deserve to have, a long and healthy life. They need careful attention to their general health and diet, but this is no more than any cat should receive. A properly cared for FIV cat need not have a shortened life expectancy. The effectiveness of all cats’ immune systems reduce with age. Not many would recommend euthanasia just because a cat is getting elderly, so why so with FIV?”

    Thank you for posting this article Mo. I will never forget those first few months when we thought Stump was FIV+. The vet recommended putting him to sleep – SO glad we didnt 🙂
