Norway has reported a distressing increase of feline AIDS found in stray cats. A new study carried out by the Dyrebeskyttelsen Norge (Animal Protection Norway) charity has revealed that between 70 and 80 percent of stray cats tested across the Hadeland region tested positive for the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV).

Officials are warning that as stray cats migrate across the country, they could infect additional animals. Throughout the world between 2.5 and 4.4 percent of cats carry the virus.

This warning serves to alert all cat lovers that cats need to be protected from diseases so give your cat health care that’s probably better than what you’re getting. Then you can be sure your cat will live a healthy life even while your own nation’s health care system fails around you.
