Tiger – FIV positive

This sweet boy came to us after being attached by something. He had injuries all over his legs but thankfully he is on the mend and healing great ! Hopefully after his next vet apt he will get a clean bill of health and ready for his forever home ! He is pretty sweet, and the foster mom says “the best cat she has fostered” and she has had some lovelies ! He was born approx June 2019.

Tiger just went back to the vet for a recheck and everything is healing nicely. She can’t see anything out of the ordinary, although he still limps on one of his legs and seems a bit tender. We are going to give him some glucosamine and hopefully in time he will heal more. We also unfortunately did however find out that he is FIV positive. FIV is like aids in humans. FIV cats can live a long and normal life so please don’t let this scare you. You just have to keep him healthy and don’t let him get sick as he has a low immune system.

Broken Promises Rescue is a volunteer run, not-for-profit, animal rescue organization located in the lower Vancouver Island. We are a group of long time rescuers that have come together to focus on improving the lives of unwanted, neglected and orphaned animals on Vancouver Island (as well as remote communities and other areas of B.C. if our resources allow us to.) Currently we are seeing many pets overlooked in the shelter system because they have less than desirable qualities. They may have medical or behavioral issues or they may simply be the wrong color, age or breed. At Broken Promise Rescue we believe all animals deserve to experience a life without pain, loneliness or hunger and want them to know what it feels like to be loved and cherished, despite appearance, age or medical condition. We are also dedicated to public education and raising awareness to help end the ongoing abuse, neglect and suffering. Educating children and adults about the responsibilities of animal ownership will go a long way in influencing public opinion on proper animal care, and help mold a more compassionate future. No animal should suffer at the hands of ignorance.
