Customer Question

I have a male cat that is a couple years old but was diagnosed with Feline AIDS last year when I adopted him from the street...this morning he was perfectly himself and when I got home from work an hour ago I found him in a crouch position of my couch and very limp...he seems to be breathing very shallow and is avoiding contact by now trying to hide but he has no energy at all...

I paid for priority service and now no one is here! I'll be disputing this charge with Pay Pal. What a rip off

I apologize for the wait.

With any FIV patient it is really important to be on top of any illness and it certainly sounds like you are. I think at this point you should take him the vet ASAP. Limp with shallow breathing could be quite serious even a cat that does not have FIV. Depending on how he looks I think they are going to want to run bloodwork and chest x-rays to see what is going on.
