Now I remember - we were calling it "shedding" as in making the cat contagious 
because that's what the book that I quoted called it.  It called it shedding 
the virus into their saliva, etc. 

“I am not interested to know whether vivisection produces results that are 
profitable to the human race or doesn’t….the pain which it inflicts upon 
unconsenting animals is the basis of my enmity toward it, and it is to me 
sufficient justification of the enmity without looking further.” – Mark Twain
