When Django came to us, he had a bit of a ‘goopy’ eye. This was due to condition called entropion, which meant his eyelashes were rubbing against the surface of his eyeball. This was causing him a lot of pain and putting him at a greater risk of infection. He also had several broken teeth and tested positive for FIV.
FIV – known formally as Feline Immunodeficiency Virus – is a viral infection affecting domestic cats and other feline species. FIV is an incurable but manageable infection for an indoor cat – with many cats living healthy lives despite being FIV positive. In fact, recent studies suggest that cats with FIV commonly live normal life spans.
Thankfully, our incredible veterinary team were able to address Django’s health issues promptly, and they also neutered him.
He made a wonderful recovery under the watchful eye of our veterinary and cattery teams, and shortly afterwards they were able to send him off to his new home – where we hear he’s doing well and has settled in very nicely with his new purr-rents! Way to go Django!
