Feline Aids (FIV) is spread through deep bite wounds. If your cats do not fight, the other cats will not catch it from the affected kitty.
The real danger lies with the FIV + kitty. He is very susceptible to germs and illness. he can live a good quality of life if special care is taken to keep him healthy. He may get sick more often than your other cats, and ALL cats should be kept inside at all times.
I do not recommend the FIV vaccine. In the first place it is not very effective. Secondly, once a cat has been injected with this vaccine, the cat will test positive
for FIV, even though he doesn't have it.
