What You Should Know About Feline AIDS. There is no cure, but cats can live for up to 10 years – much of it in seeming good health – before succumbing. It is estimated that between one percent and 14 percent of the cat population is infected with FIV. The disease is transmitted from cat to cat by blood and saliva.Is feline AIDS the same disease humans get?
No , feline AIDS does not attack humans. A cat infected with AIDS can never infect a human even by biting them. Although it is the same disease, FIV is not the same virus that infects humans. In this case we are talking about HIV, which is the human immunodeficiency virus.
