    Hello everyone, I have been feeding a stray tom cat for a few months now & he's come back with an injured paw. I want to get him neutered too but he goes bananas if you try get him in a box. My husband tried before and wasn't able for him. Now here's the thing,
    I've asked a local rescue for help, just for the trap. They've sent me a contract saying they will put him down if he has FIV. It was my understanding cats can live with FIV? I don't feel right signing it, he's a healthy cat other than his current paw issue. Would really appreciate some thoughts, thank you!

    Although a cat can live with FIV it is communicable via deep scratches and or bites and can be passed via the mother to kittens. This is why if it is a stray and although he may end up neutered the rescue will pts as the FIV is highly communicable amongst outdoor cats.
