for the past year we have had an intact male who we've named Mr. Whiskers coming to feed with our 3 TNR babies, the 3 TNR's are friendly but wont let you touch them, for awhile so was Mr. Whiskers but soon he was looking for petting and rubbing on our legs and just hanging out with us even after all the food was eaten. he got so friendly we wanted to adopt him, at this point he'd come sit on our laps, we have three indoor babies and cant have another without the landlady kicking us out and we really dont have the room in this size apt. well anyway my mom took care of our inside and outside babies while we were on vacation and she fell in love with Mr. Whiskers. after much thought she wanted to adopt him. last night before a big storm my husband caught him and confined him in our bathroom, he was ssuch a good boy. this morning i set out for the vet with him in tow to get him vaccinated wormed and neutered and then he was off to live the life of luxury as an indoor cat at my mom's. they did the standard testing for communicable diseases and he is positive for FIV (AIDS) i am heartbroken, my mom has one cat and the vet said that Mr. Whiskers could transmit FIV to him. i am at a loss as to what to do, he was quite healthy so the vt reccomended we neuter worm and treat him for fleas anyway. i feels so bad releasing him but we dont know what else to do. i'll be picking him up in an hour he's recovering from his neuter right now. does anyone have any suggestions please?
