With the weather turning colder, I'm considering bringing my FIV+ now-tame, affectionate former feral into the house with my two indoor cats. I've been feeding him for a year now but it took 10 months before he trusted me enough to get him to the vet for tests, neutering and shots. The vet while admitting the risk may be low has discouraged my bringing the cat indoors, especially since I don't have a place inside where I can separate him from my two indoor cats. Both of my indoor cats - a spayed female and neutered male- are FeLv and FIV negative and in pretty good health, other than the male having an intestinal issue of unknown origin and gets a steroid shot every now and then. LDG provided several wonderfully helpful links in my lengthy thread in Ferals but I'd like to hear some stories from Catsite members about how they have handled bringing in FIV postitive cats to an FIV negative household. Thanks!
