**Special needs*** FIV+
Benny is one chill cat. He likes to cruise around the sanctuary, check out the other cats, say hey to the caretakers, then wrap it all up with a nap. Benny was brought to a vets office due to having difficulty urinating, and when his owner couldn’t afford the treatment, she surrendered him to the vet. We’re not 100% sure what brought on this episode of difficulty urinating, but since he has recovered, he has been doing fine on a wet food only diet. So when he tries to cadge treats, we go easy on the crunchy ones! Benny is FIV+, but he is in good health. Our experience with FIV+ cats is that they have the same life expectancy as non-FIV kitties and they love their people just the same. The disease is extremely hard to transmit from cat to cat and it requires direct blood contact (typically from a deep puncture wound). It is not transmissible to humans.
