2. You may step inside with your cat and paperwork for check in. If you are unable to print forms ahead of time, we will have forms at the clinic to fill out when you arrive.
3. It is a REQUIREMENT that all feral/barn cats come in a humane feral trap for their feral/barn cat surgical procedure. If the cat is not in a proper humane trap - you will be asked to reschedule your appointment. We will not accept your feral/barn cat in a regular plastic cat carrier. It is important that all feral/barn cats come in a proper trap due to the safety of the animal and staff.
4. Please cover the cat’s trap with a blanket/towel/sheet for the drive and check in process. We ask that you also line the inside of the trap with a few pieces of newspaper. If you need to entice the cat to enter the trap - you may place a small plate/dish at the far end of the trap so the cat must enter the trap fully.

Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV)
In the event of a positive FeLV or FIV test, you have the option of humane euthanasia. See FIV information:
Feral cats and owned cats contract FIV at an equally low rate. An estimated 3-4% of all free-roaming cats become infected and carry the virus, but only a small portion of these cats develop symptoms related to FIV. Most FIV-infected cats live many years– sometimes their entire lives—without any visible effects from the virus.
In cats who develop FIV-related disease, the virus can cause varying degrees of immune system dysfunction. This most often manifests as a reduced ability to fight infection. For example, the classic presentation is an adult male cat with recurrent abscesses that take longer to heal than would be expected. Other types of infections caused by viruses, bacteria, and fungi may also become more serious and take longer to resolve.
A diagnosis of FIV infection is not cause for alarm. Since the virus has a long incubation period, a cat who tests FIV-positive may live free of FIV-related disease for a lifetime. Furthermore, FIV-vaccinated cats are indistinguishable from FIV-infected cats.
Standard tests only detect antibodies against the virus, not the virus itself. The presence of antibodies does not mean the cat is infected.
Positive FIV tests in kittens under six months of age should not be interpreted as FIV infection. Kittens are rarely infected but may test positive because antibodies can be passed from infected mothers through nursing. For more accurate interpretation, FIV-positive kittens under six months of age should be retested between eight and 12 months of age, when maternal antibodies have declined.
Current FIV tests cannot distinguish between cats who are infected with FIV, vaccinated against FIV, or both infected and vaccinated.
There is no cure for FIV, but a cat who tests FIV-positive may live free of FIV- related disease for his lifetime. By carrying out spay/neuter programs, the risk of transmission will be greatly reduced, due to elimination of breeding and decreased fighting.
