Gandhi is a lovely middle-aged cat who is blind (he now has his left eye removed) and is looking for a loving home with someone who is able to give him a lot of love and affection. He is a little nervous and hisses when approached but he is not aggressive and we think that he will come out of his shell once he is in a calm environment.
Gandhi tested positive for calicivirus. Feline calicivirus (FCV) is a small virus that mainly causes acute upper respiratory infections (URIs) in cats. The virus is readily transmitted between cats through direct contact with saliva, ocular or nasal secretions, inhalation of sneeze droplets and sharing of food bowls and litter trays. In a contaminated environment (including bedding and grooming aids) FCV can potentially survive up to a month, although probably often does not survive more than 7-14 days.
Apart from having a head tilt from an old injury Gandhi has currently no other issues and is not on any medications. In case of any future flare ups due to the virus Gandhi can come back to our clinic to receive treatment
Please note that any of our foster cats need to be placed in close proximity to one of our London clinics as they need to be checked on a regular basis. Ideally the fosterer should have a car or access to a car to bring the cat into the clinic, as a journey by public transport would be too stressful for the cat.
