Cat has FIV (Feline AIDS). :cry:
I was wondering. Sorry about that :( 🤗

We had one with that.

Your choices will be difficult, depending on how far it has progressed.

Cats can be born with it, if their mother had it, or they can get it from sex or cat fights.

Once it had progressed like it did with our girl your choices are meds or lalaland. The meds can make the cat feel more comfortable, but a time will come when there is no quality of life. Our girl was there already.

I held her while the vet assistant shaved her leg, and inserted the needle.
I held her while she was being injected.
I held her until her breathing and heart stopped.

She did not try fight about anything. If anything she was rubbing her cheek against my arm. Almost like she was saying it is ok and bye at the same time.

Holding her was the least I could do so it was not just strangers around her. That must have been 7 or 8 years ago.

On average FIV takes about 10 years to affect their health, but can be anything from 8 - 12 years from birth/infection

No meds? There are meds that can slow it if its not in advanced stages.
He's on anti-biotics until Saturday. I asked about supplements to boost the immune system and was told it won't really help and often makes cats eat less. He is a small thin cat and must pick up weight, so can't have him eat less. He's in stage 2 of the 3 stages of FIV.

What meds do you know of?

'Ella was too far gone, so didn't look at the meds.

I hope your boy picks up weight.

' Ella was a trim and sleek 6Kg cat that went down to about 3 to 3.5Kg. Was just skin and bone.

This one is going to be tough when to pull the plug. I've been through two kidney failures so know when it's time. I don't have experience of FIV.
