Jax hung around AALOC as part of a feral cat community that AALOC feeds. But pretty soon it was apparent that Jax was anything but feral. He started to trust the kennel staff and began to let them pet him, so he must have belonged to someone at one time. This little black and white feline is very curious, intelligent and lovable.
The kennel team was able to trap him and take him to the vet for a check-up. They discovered Jax was FIV positive. FIV is a lentivirus, a slow-progressing virus that can compromise a cat’s immune system, reducing its ability to fight off illnesses. The virus has a long latent period then progresses so slowly that it may never effect a cat. FIV is not transferrable to humans. Jax can live a long life with the proper care but we recommend an adult-only home without any other pets.
