I doubt that they can catch our illnesses.
But I have a question: my cat, Lucky (whom I inherited from my mother who died in November) has a chronic "herpes" infection in his left eye. Then I started getting "cold sores" on my nose, when I don't even have a cold.
So, just wondering...could we share a herpes virus?

Subject: [Felvtalk] Can Humans Make FELV+ cats sick?


Just wondering if anyone knows if humans who are sick with a cold, the flu, etc can make a FELV+ cat sick. Magic is currently still asymptomatic (other than
her diagnosis). I'm just wondering when we are sick if they are more
susceptible with their weakened immune system.

Thanks,
Stephanie
