Winter is one handsome Lilac Point Siamese mix with beautiful baby blue eyes. This sweet boy likes to be held and if you hold him just right, he might fall asleep. He is a playful and friendly boy loves to chase his siblings.

Winter’s mama is FIV positive and it is very common for FIV antibodies to be passed along to her kittens so Winter has tested positive for FIV. It is important to understand that these tests look for the presence of the FIV antibodies but they do not look for the presence of FIV.

While maternal antibody transmission is common, the transmission of the disease is extremely uncommon. It is recommended that Winter be tested again in six months after maternal antibodies have worn off and a more accurate test result can be obtained. In most cases, kittens will retest negative, and be FIV-free.
