The missus took two of the cats for their jabs this am, and the vet tells her that our new male, one year old Oreo, has Cat AIDS.

He'll be OK. They can be vaccinated against it, so make sure the other mogs are (although they may then test positive themselves - are you sure Oreo hasn't been vaccinated?). As I understand it, the main method of transmission is through wounds sustained during fights, so I hope he doesn't get in to any punch-ups.

Apparently , the little moggie has red gums, which is a main indicator of the condition. The vet advised that we dont get any kittens
but the older moggies are safe because they have built up their immunity.

The vet reckons he is a carrier

GET HIM NEUTERED ASAP!!
There is already far too many cats in rescue homes because people allow their un-neutered cats to roam about the neighbourhood. If you're a responsible cat owner, get him neutered ASAP before your cat contributes (even more) to the problem...

If he has had his annual boosters from day one then he would have been vaccinated against FIV and it is unlikely he would have it.

Red gums are an indication of gingivitis which is common in cats.

Has your vet done a blood test to confirm he is FIV+ ?

If he is FIV+ then it is best to keep him indoors, I used to home cats for CPL and for any positive cats we recommended they didn't go outside.

It's not confirmed .It was just the vets first take on things

the missus mentioned he was attacking the christmas dekkies last night, which are full of red paper chains and tinsel

so the juries out I suppose.
