Midnight – Suffering with Many Wounds and Now FIV Positive

4/6/17 – Midnight appeared at a home after obviously being in a fight. He had many wounds on his body but was very friendly. We had Midnight visit one of our professional and generous veterinarians to have his wounds treated, checked for a microchip, vaccinated, tested, and neutered. Unfortunately, there was no microchip and although we are sure he must have been inside at one time, his owners could not be found. In the process of his vet visit, it was found that Midnight was FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus) positive. According to Pets Web MD, “Cats who are infected with feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) may not show symptoms until years after the initial infection occurred. Although the virus is slow-acting, a cat’s immune system is severely weakened once the disease takes hold. This makes the cat susceptible to various secondary infections. Infected cats who receive supportive medical care and are kept in a stress-free, indoor environment can live relatively comfortable lives for months to years before the disease reaches its chronic stages.” A temporary foster was found for him. ~ dianamidnightw:mary stephenson 3:28:17
