FIV+ and FeLV+

Kittens that are FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus) and FeLV (feline leukemia virus) positive are harder to place — these immunodeficiency transmissible diseases require special monitoring, diets, and blood tests. Although there's no cure, cats can safely live individually.

I feel the same way about this as I do about the special needs pets mentioned previously. It's sad, but I'm glad these pets aren't going to people without the time and means to properly care for them.
