My kitties have suddenly begun playing paws under the door of my rescued IFA positive FeLV cat and I'm wondering how worried I should be?
I'm kind of worried but it seems he likes to do this and I don't want to take it away from him as it's his only kitty interaction - he hasn't had any or been interested - since I caught him a year ago. Their paws can't get all the way under the door - the gap is about a half inch high - but they get about halfway and he can get about halfway, so I think they do touch, even if it's only for a moment. I wash everything separately, and I wear flip flops in his room (although I leave them outside the door. :() I don't change clothes after playing with him, but I do wash my hands/arms. He's about 10 years old, from what the neighborhood people have told me, and he's been confirmed IFA positive FeLV and FIV positive since I rescued him a year ago. I can see he's been feeling better and better and getting more energetic as I've dewormed him, along with steady food/water/care. So I imagine he may start trying to instigate paws himself, soon. He's got a window but even that gets old, I imagine. Anyone have any thoughts on how much increased risk there is /concern I should have with playing paws?
