So my cat flu, FIV cat? That turned out to be a tooth, not cat flu
He had the snap test for FIV. A few weeks ago I asked for the full blood test
HE IS FIV NEGATIVE!!!!! shockshockshock

Wow! What will that mean for him?

hollinhurst84 Thu 10-Mar-16 10:32:58

No risk of any FIV complications
Oh and he can go out and party hmmgrin

Yayyy! Brilliant news for both of you!

cozietoesie Thu 10-Mar-16 10:43:45

Are you going to be OK with him going out and partying?

Is he showing signs of wanting to do it in fact?

hollinhurst84 Thu 10-Mar-16 10:57:48

Um no. He's very much "been there, been a stray, cold momma, I stay in bed"
But I will let him out when I'm home and he can stay in at night
He's very excited!

You might find that he prefers to be mostly inside - it will help prevent him from acquiring any obsession with the outside though.

I'm very pleased for you both not to have the FIV in the background all the time. smile

hollinhurst84 Thu 10-Mar-16 11:18:19

Yes I'm so pleased as it means his immune system isn't compromised and also he can't pass it on
He's had his first taste of outside while I paced like a nervous mum

When The Lodger came here, he was outside like a shot but then developed a bit of a 'Been there, Done that' attitude and retired upstairs for a comfy snooze in the warm. smile

Full Spring might present more problems for you - only 'might' because he does seem pretty bonded.

Did he come back in after his adventure?

hollinhurst84 Thu 10-Mar-16 11:50:05

No fear grinshock
And yes, straight back through window

Fluffycloudland77 Thu 10-Mar-16 16:48:08

Oh that's such good news for you both.

hollinhurst84 Sun 13-Mar-16 19:52:30

"I might go outside. Might not. Hold door hooman" hmm

They love the breeze in their whiskers and a toasty bum.

cozietoesie Sun 13-Mar-16 20:03:35

I decided, after years of dilly dallying around doors, to take a .......robust.......attitude with The Lodger on the matter.

It worked.grin

hollinhurst84 Sun 13-Mar-16 20:14:51

I try but LOOOK at that face blush

cozietoesie Sun 13-Mar-16 20:18:00

Difficult, I grant you. smile

hollinhurst84 Sun 13-Mar-16 20:21:37

And yes that is how he sleeps (under the duvet, head on pillow) if he isn't lay on me
