We've had some bad news about Homer. He's had a viral pneumonia for about a week and has been attendoing the vet every second day. Because she was concerned that he wasn't getting better as quickly as might be expected, the vet has tested him for Feline Leukemia Virus (FLeV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV). Unfortunately, Homer has tested positive for FIV.
On the bright side, he's recovered from his pneumonia, is eating well and looks great. He also tested negative for FLeV. He goes back to the vet on 30th October for a check up and, hopefully, his boosters and a vaccination against FLeV.
